    If you are looking to get the best education for the least amount of money, SMCC is a great school. Most of the teachers have jobs in their field outside of the classroom, which makes asking questions easy. The tuition is affordable, and the campus is right on the ocean.

    The first 3 credit class and fees cost $436. Each one you add on after that costs $386. The school is fully accredited, and all of your credits will transfer to USM, MECCA and U Maine system. I'm not sure if all of them transfer to other schools, but your chances are good.

    very affordable school, and many people receive very nice financial aid packages. credits are easily transferred to many schools, and all University of Maine System schools. If you decide to transfer, this is a much easier and affordable way to earn your bachelors degree!
