Welcome to Penobscot Valley Senior College!

We are a non-profit 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 comaraderie to experience!

Through a yearly affordable membership fee that runs from July 1st through June 30th of the following year, you may attend our free "One-Day" events and/or register for reasonably priced 4 to 6 week two-hour courses. For fall 2021, we will be offering courses in person and on Zoom, depending on instructor/presenter preference and facility availability. Zoom technology has provided PVSC the opportunity to link instructors and students who may 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 fee.  
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 call 207-659-1359 to arrange for registration, since membership in other colleges eliminates the need for a PVSC membership. 

Thank you for your support!
