  2. Students can take classes through the University of Maine at Presque Isle on the Hyde School campus through a dual-enrollment program in which advanced courses in the Hyde catalog are approved as meeting the requirements of UMPI courses. Hyde has 19 courses currently approved for dual enrollment, and students may earn up to 3 credits per passing class while they begin to build an official college transcript.

Student Testimonials

Stephen Waddill

Hi, my name is Stephen Waddill, from Nashville, Tennessee. I took Western Civilization and College Writing at USM this semester, and the biggest thing I took away from this semester is just an improvement in my writing, from my College Writing class. Those skills I learned in that class really translated into Western Civilization and my other classes at Hyde, and it really set me up for my next year in college.

Marlena De Castro

Hi, I’m Marlena De Castro from Oak Park, California, and I took Critical Thinking about Economics and Intro to Women and Gender Studies, and I found it incredibly valuable to get exposed to the rigor of real college classes.

Sam Wolters

Hi, I’m Sam Wolters. I’m from Brookline, Massachusetts via the Netherlands. I took Critical Thinking about Student Debt and College Writing. I learned about what kind of work college classes require and how to space out my time.

Sunday Maker

Hi, my name is Sunday Maker, from Portland, Maine via South Sudan. This past semester at USM I took Western Civilization and English 100. The biggest thing I took from this semester was how to manage my time and use my professors as resources.
