Student Services Appointment Request Form


Attention Bonny Eagle Students and Parents:


The University of Maine at Augusta is excited to announce college level Computer Science courses are being taught at Bonny Eagle High School. Mrs. Pellerin took a Summer course with UMA that certifies her to teach CIS101 Introduction to Computer Science to students who enroll in her course. Students will receive high school credit as well as college credit for work done throughout the trimester. There isn’t an age limit for student participants - most Early College opportunities are reserved for Juniors and Seniors so this is an exciting option for freshman and sophomores. Additionally, there are no costs associated with participation in the course as funding for this opportunity comes through the Department of Education High School Aspirations Waiver. The textbooks have been provided by the university as well, which means students will have no out of pocket costs. Within the Aspirations program, tuition is waived for up to 6 credits a semester or 12 per year however students are responsible for course fees, textbooks and any cost of credits over the 6 credit limit.

If you are thinking this all sounds too good to be true - there is a catch so to speak. Once students register for the course and the add/drop dates passes - they have committed to this path and will earn a grade on their transcript. As long as students complete the work and earn a passing grade, they will receive college credit that is transferable to other colleges and universities. For purposes of transferability - the college defines a C or better grade adequate enough to transfer the course. Depending on where your student goes for their post-secondary education, this course could count as a general education requirement or elective credit. For most students this provides them a supported introduction to what college level academics is all about. It can help affirm that they can be successful in college as well as potentially spark an interest in a discipline of study they may not have otherwise considered. Still others use this as a way to distinguish their college applications or write a compelling admissions essay on why they are a better bet than another student given that they are college proven with credit earned already while in high school.

I will end by saying not many high schools can offer Computer Science to students at the college level. Mrs. Pellerin did an immense amount of work this summer in a college course and was vetted by our Computer Science Department to offer this as an opportunity to Bonny Eagle students. On behalf of the Office of Early College at UMA, we look forward to this partnership!
