EXCITING NEWS! 
Our new PVSC membership year will begin again on July 1st. However because we are changing our fiscal year to January 1 -December 31, we are offering a one-time 18 month membership! Same affordable price! ($25 Individual membership and $40 for two people at the same household.)
This membership year begins on July 1, 2022, and continues through December 31, 2023! How great is that? Register online or mail in the membership registration form with a check to PVSC.

You will need a current membership in order to take courses or attend any presentations offered. Membership dues are used to fund our courses and special events. PVSC now has four terms instead of only two, as well as One-Day Presentations that are free with your membership!

In addition, Senior College Membership is Reciprocal! When you become a member of your nearest Senior College, you can take courses at other Maine Senior Colleges by paying their course tuition, but without paying additional membership fees.


Great classes!
Health, history, science and nature, technology, literature, popular culture, art, politics, and more—these and other subjects make it hard to choose a course. 

Typically, the two-hour classes meet one day a week for four-six weeks. We have two official larger sessions, spring and fall, with a dozen or so choices each session. In addition, we offer smaller winter and summer sessions, with many One-Day Presentations added. However, with Zoom, depending on instructor availability, we've added extra courses throughout the year. Teachers, our "volunteer experts" are engaging, well-prepared, and you don't have to leave home to enjoy their offerings!

As mentioned, due to health and safety concerns, we switched in June of 2020 to offering "virtual" classes via Zoom. While we miss the face-to-face aspect, we've adapted like so many other organizations so our members can connect while at home or away!
Once available locations and instructors/presenters are available for face-to-face offerings, we will provide both in-person as well as Zoom courses. We also hope to provide a "hybrid model" where some attendees will be at the location, and some accessing remotely.

Our "One-Day Presentations" are also offered on Zoom at this time, and those are available with anyone who is a current member of PVSC.
Members are also entitled to take courses at other Senior Colleges in Maine by paying just the tuition each college charges.

Becoming a member
Click the link below for the application form that can

be mailed in if you prefer not to register online.
Annual membership is $25, or $40 for two people at the same address. Some people have asked, "Why does a couple membership get a discount?" The couple cost is discounted because our website lists "households", with one or two members of that household. Both members may list their email address, but only one is considered the primary billing person. "Some members prefer their information mailed, so only one mailed item, not two, is sent to a couple household, which reduces preparation and mailing costs.



Registering for classes
Online registration is easy, and you get an emailed receipt showing you've registered and fees are paid for the classes. While we hope that you feel comfortable registering on this secure website (look for the padlock secure icon), we know that some members prefer to mail in their registration and check. This is still an option.

Tuition for each course is $30. You must already be a member, or include the membership fee with your registration.
However, if you are a member of another Maine Senior College, call or email Sheila at 207-659-1359 or pvscmaine@gmail.com, and she will adjust the membership fee so you can then either register online, or mail in your check without paying additional membership fees. What a bargain!
