Your Membership at SSC

Sunrise Senior College (SSC) is a Member Organization With dues currently set at $25.00 a year. Our membership year runs from September 1st to August 31st of the following year.

Classes offered in the Spring and Fall are normally $15.00 per course and includes all course material and books.

A limited number of scholarships are available for those Seniors who may need some assistance. We want everyone to have the opportunity to attend Sunrise Senior College.

The Summer Shorts Program is included as part of your membership. These events are offered throughout the summer months to all current members of Sunrise Senior College. The programs are normally only a single session with the events being scheduled from June to the end of August. They are uniquely designed to fit the busy lifestyle of Mainers and are very popular with many of our summer residents who visit Maine during the summer months.

The Winter Warm Ups Program presented during January and February is open to the public and helps bring people together during the cold winter months.

As a public service Sunrise Senior College offers ‘Free and Open to the public’ Special Events on interesting subjects throughout the year in an effort to keep the public informed.
