The Husson University Division of Extended Learning serves adult learners who, because of work schedules and geographic locations, wish to attend classes in the evening, Saturdays or on-line. A schedule of course offerings for each center is available prior to the beginning of each term. All sites offer a variety of two- and four-year majors from the Schools of Business, Education, and Science and Humanities; the exact programs available depend on the needs of the particular community. The Division recognizes that the adult learner brings real life experience, skills and knowledge to the classroom. Course instructors are dedicated to teaching, and most are active professionals in the fields in which they teach. A full-time Coordinator is available to students at each Center.

Students of Extended Learning programs are subject to the same policies and requirements as previously enumerated. The following specialized procedures apply only to Extended Learning students.

Admission

All applicants should arrange to meet with the Center Coordinator where most courses will be taken. As part of the application process, a degree-seeking student must submit the following information:

  • Official copy of high school transcript or GED certificate.
  • Official copy of college transcript(s) for transfer credits (to be sent from previous college directly to the Center).
  • Proof of immunity against measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, and tetanus.
  • Completed application/registration form.
  • Degree application fee of $25.00.

Tuition

Please refer to the financial section for more specific information. Tuition is payable in full the first day of class. However, it is possible to arrange for monthly payments with interest charged on the unpaid balance each month. A student with a balance due from a previous term must clear that balance prior to registering for a new term.

Extended Learning students who seek to take one or more day division courses will be charged day division tuition rates for those courses.

Financial Aid

Extended Learning students who carry at least six credit hours and are enrolled in a degree program are eligible to apply for need-based financial aid. Interested students should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Please contact the Center Director or Financial Aid Office for more information. It is important to complete financial aid paperwork early, before registration, as it affects billing procedures.

Withdrawals and Course Add/Drop

Students may add or drop courses before the start of the term, or during the standard add/drop period (through the second week of class), and receive a full refund of tuition and fees. A special add/drop form must be filed with the Center before the start of the third week of class.

After the standard add/drop period, tuition and fees will not be adjusted for individual course withdrawals. A student who withdraws from the program must file an official form.  Refund credits are computed from the date that the Center receives the form  Prorated refunds are explained more fully in the catalog section entitled Financial Information. Nonattendance of classes does not constitute withdrawal.

For program withdrawals during the term, refund credits will be prorated on the balance of tuition, fees, and other charges. Check with the Center Coordinator for more information.

Academic Policies and Procedures

All Extended Learning degree courses are consistent with those offered in the Day School programs of study. The usual term academic load is not less than three (3) credit hours or more than twelve (12) credit hours. Each degree candidate must complete a minimum of thirty (30) credit hours at a Husson Center or on the Bangor University; at least fifteen (15) credits must be completed within the student’s major. Degree candidates must complete their final thirty (30) credit hours through Husson. If necessary, in order to graduate, a senior may take fifteen (15) credit hours the last term. Otherwise, students wishing to take more than twelve (12) credit hours per term must have the approval from the Dean responsible for Extended Learning programs.
