Bangor STEM Academy Partners with UMaine

BANGOR - Students at Bangor High School may have the opportunity to earn college credits before they graduate.

The Bangor School Department and the University of Maine have finalized an agreement that will help graduates from the Bangor STEM Academy save time and money toward a degree.

The program, which began in the Fall of 2012, now has 41 enrolled students.

The new agreement will allow those who successfully complete the STEM Academy's requirements to use a maximum of 30-credit hours toward an engineering degree at UMaine.

Stem Academy graduates will be given priority in the admission process. Those who apply early will be considered for merit scholarships and the honors college as well.
