    Who has too much stuff?
    Did you know that PVSC has gift certificates?--great for your family and friends who want to experience "Learning for the Fun of It! 
    On the website, click on Register > Store > Gift Certificates. You can choose an individual or couple membership (for 2 people at the same mailing address), or for a single course of the recipients' choice. Starting in January, for the first time in twenty years all courses will be $35.00. Still a bargain!

    If you want to make a donation to PVSC, a 501c3 non-profit, you can do that by mail or online (Register > Donation) and choose the amount you wish to donate. PVSC is a volunteer organization, but of course we have administrative costs in order to continue offering our top-notch courses and presentations, so your continued participation and support is appreciated.

Penobscot Valley Senior College! LEARNING FOR THE FUN OF IT!

PVSC always welcomes new members and volunteers!
Penobscot Valley Senior College (PVSC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization of volunteers that offers a wide variety of educational opportunities to members ages 50 and older for their enrichment and enjoyment.  Don't let the word "college" scare you--there are no grades or credits, no homework, no tests, just a lot of knowledge and friendship to experience!

Our yearly affordable membership fee which runs from January 1st through December 31st of each year, enables us to continue to offer our members year-round courses, presentations and events. With membership you help support PVSC, and may attend our free "One-Day" presentations and/or register for reasonably priced weekly 4-to-6 week two-hour courses. Depending on instructor choice and facility availability, courses may be held on  Zoom, and/or in person. Zoom technology has also provided PVSC the opportunity to link instructors and students who may live far from our geographical center in Bangor, Maine.

As part of the Maine Senior College Network (MSCN) members PVSC may also take courses at any other Maine Senior College simply by paying the course fees.  
If you have trouble registering for Courses be sure to review the How to Register for an Class page.
Members of other senior colleges should create an account online, then call or email so that the membership fee can be removed before registering online or mailing in course fees. 207-659-1359 or email pvscmaine@gmail,com
