Frequently Asked Questions
Is this an online program?
Yes and no because it’s up to you. Classes are taught on a specific day and time like a traditional course, but students are free to attend in-person or online from wherever they are. Learners, who cannot attend a particular class in person because of work, childcare, or life can access the LIVE course they missed online once the class ends. Every course will have virtual “drop-in” times for learners to get help from a content expert. Often the content expert is the faculty member teaching the course.
How and where will I study?
Our classrooms are located at our brand-new building at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine, with classes happening in real-time (synchronous), either in person or online. Since all our courses are taught from campus you are attending a live class regardless of your location and will be able to ask questions, participate in discussions, engage with classmates, and experience learning in the labs.
How much does it cost?
Our cost per credit is $250, and we anticipate most learners being eligible to received Financial Aid (federal & state), which can reduce out-of-pocket costs significantly. Learn more about Paying for College.
How do I find out if I’m eligible for Financial Aid?
The process is simple, complete the FAFSA and make sure to include the Technical Institute for Environmental Professions at Unity College school code 006858. If you have questions about financial aid, paying for college, or the process, our staff is ready and eager to help.
