PURPOSE OF PROGRAM
Combining academics and applied learning is an integral part of the Business Technology Program at Presque Isle Regional Career and Technical Center. The curriculum prepares students for success in three distinct postsecondary career paths – Business Management, Business Finance and Business Marketing.
Dual enrollment courses have become an integral part of our program. Our current articulation agreement with Northern Maine Community College (NMCC) makes it possible for us to offer 8 college level courses that count for both high school credit and college credits. NMCC waives the tuition cost. Students only pay a small registration fee. Students earning a C average or better may be able to transfer the credits to the college that they choose to attend. Most colleges accept the transfer of 100 level courses. Courses may be used as electives regardless of intended major. Another advantage with this program is that you have a school year to complete a one semester college course. This is a great way to get a head start on your college career.
