Maine College and Career Access
The Maine College and Career Access (MCCA) Program, formerly known as College Transitions, is designed to help adults transition into education or training programs. We provide tutoring in English, Math, and Computer Skills, as well as individualized advising to help you with the admission and financial aid processes.
Maine College and Career Access (MCCA) is defined as high-quality, comprehensive academic and advising services leading to a learner’s enrollment in post-high school education and/or training that results in a credential of value and high-quality employment. Participants receiving MCCA services will acquire the skills and knowledge to pursue their learning and employment goals. Examples of credentials of value include:
- Educational degrees and diplomas
- Industry-recognized or professional trade recognized credentials
- Occupational licenses
- Registered apprenticeship certification
Students should expect to complete pre and post testing in either the ACCUPLACER or CASAS (standardized benchmark test used by Adult Education programs.) At Intake, students will set goals and work with an advisor to develop an Individual Education Plan. Students will work with instructors to improve their academic skills, as well as their comfort with the technology that will be used in their education or training program. Students will work closely with an adviser to complete career assessments and conduct occupational research. The advisor can assist with searching for education and training programs and applying for financial assistance through state and federal financial aid and private scholarships. Students should expect to continue to follow up with their advisor for two years after leaving the MCCA program.
No. Each program has certain characteristics that are the same. We offer two models:
- Cohort model, all students enter a class at the same time and continue to work together through the program.
- Tailored services. Students work with the MCCA adviser to plan their schedules and complete course and advising requirements.
Yes. You can work with us to improve your reading, writing, math, or science skills so that you can meet entrance examination requirements or improve your class placement. As long as you are also willing to complete the advising and testing requirements noted above, this tutoring is free.
