More than 280,000 individuals in Maine began their college journey but left without a degree. A new program aims to get them back on track with financial support, scholarships, and tailored services. Each student in the initiative will also be assigned a personal advisor. The "Finish Strong" adult degree completion effort is being launched in spring 2024 by the University of Maine and will target adult Mainers ages 25 and older with some college or no four-year degree. Finish Strong also focuses on Maine's immigrant communities, including refugees, those granted asylum, and asylum seekers.
