Penobscot Valley Senior College Membership
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 six weeks. We have two sessions, spring and fall, with a dozen or so choices each session. Classes are lively. Teachers—"volunteer experts"—are engaging.
During Covid-19, summer, 2020, we've added some interesting free "virtual" classes via Zoom. While we miss the face-to-face aspect, we've adapted like so many other organizations, and realize that we will continue offering some of our courses online, so you can connect while at home or away!
Occasional half-day talks or workshops on topics of special interest keep us learning between semesters.
Members are also entitled to take courses at other Senior Colleges in Maine by paying just the tuition.
Becoming a member
Click the link below for the application form.
The membership year runs from July to the next June. 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 only one mailed item, not two, is sent to a couple household, which reduces preparation and mailing costs.
Hopefully the two people will share!)
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.
