MEOC Mission Goals

The Maine Educational Opportunity Center (MEOC) is a community service program providing postsecondary educational planning information and assistance to adults of a low-income and/or first generation background. Our goal is to increase the number of adults attending college by providing quality admissions, financial aid and career exploration counseling.



MEOC was highlighted in the Maine Compact for Higher Education's Increasing Higher Education Attainment in Maine Best Practices Directory in both 2006 and 2007!


The Maine Educational Opportunity Center is funded entirely by the US Department of Education. The grant award for 2012-2013 is $680,609.
