South Coast Senior College

South Coast Senior College is a casual learning environment open to everyone 50+ in York County and Seacoast NH for year-round and summer residents. There are no tests, no previous college experiences, no papers and no quizzes.  These are non-credit courses taught and facilitated by volunteers (your peers).  Cost is $25 for annual membership and an additional modest fee for each course.  Most courses are held at York County Community College.

South Coast Senior College is part of the Maine Senior College Network (MSCN), which began in 1997 at the University of Southern Maine in Portland, and is currently a consortium of 17 independent groups from York County to Fort Kent.
