About Extended Learning/Adult Learners

Undergraduate study for the adult learner and/or working professional.

Husson University's Division of Extended Learning serves adults who, because of work schedules, geographic locations, or other responsibilities, wish to earn a degree at times and places that are convenient to them--in the evening, afternoon or on Saturdays.

It is also a program for people who want to take challenging college classes to complement their existing education.

Whether you want to earn a college degree, or simply add to your education one course at a time, Husson's Division of Extended Learning offers you a way to take Husson classes at times and places that are convenient to you. With three locations -- Bangor, Westbrook, and Presque Isle -- and numerous evening courses, a Husson education is available to a wide variety of people.

The Division of Extended Learning (DOEL) offers undergraduate study at the main campus in Bangor as well as at satellite campuses located in Westbrook and Presque Isle. All campuses offer a variety of majors; the exact programs available depend on the needs of the particular community.

Extended Learning students find their primary support from the Directors or Coordinators of the Bangor, Presque Isle, and Westbrook satellite campuses. Academic support such as library and technology services are available at all sites.

  • keep your job and go to classes at night.
  • take a course load that fits your already busy life.
  • stay close to home while pursuing your educational goals, if you live near one of our three locations.
  • transfer a number of your credits from previous accredited college courses toward your Husson degree. Contact a site director for a free college credit evaluation.
A DOEL degree is a Husson degree; there is no distinction between degrees earned through the traditional day school programs and degrees earned through Extended Learning. The DOEL program is just as rigorous and respected.

We are particularly attuned to the concerns of adult learners and/or working professionals who have jobs and families. We recognize that students in this program tend to be especially courageous, hard-working and committed to their dreams. This program is designed for just that kind of person. If you are interested in finding out more about studying at Husson through the School of Extended Learning, please review this website and feel free to contact the Director or Coordinator of your local Husson (DOEL) site.

All new degree-seeking students should arrange to meet with their site director or coordinator for transfer credit evaluations and to receive other information.
