The Maine Educational Opportunity Center (MEOC) is a federal education initiative established to promote access to post-secondary education for traditionally under-represented adult populations within the State of Maine. As part of it’s pre-entry service, MEOC Advisors coordinate efforts with area schools, colleges, and other service agencies to provide information and assistance in completing college admission and financial aid forms. MEOC advisors can assess academic readiness, provide career counseling, and refer individuals to community resources.
MEOC is committed to assist any adult wishing to re-enter a formal education setting. Funded to serve traditionally under-represented adults, the majority of MEOC participants are of the first generation in their families to go to college.
