What are the costs?High school juniors and seniors in the State of Maine may take up to 2 college classes a semester at little or no charge to them. If you did not take a college class this fall then you can take two classes in the spring semester for free.

The Maine Educational Talent Search (METS) is a federal education initiative established to encourage more young people to set high academic expectations, stay in school, study hard, and take the courses needed to prepare them for college-level studies.

METS:

- Encourages rigorous academic preparation by supporting school enhancement.
- Promotes education success for middle and high school students.

ELIGIBILITY:

Students must be enrolled in the 6th through 12th grades in the targeted middle or high schools; and students and their families must meet income guidelines, and be recognized by school guidance counselors or teachers as facing significant barriers to graduation and higher education.
