Meet Shane Cushing: SMCC Alumnus

“Continuing my education was easy.”

“I saved thousands of dollars by attending SMCC before going on to a four-year school. When I was ready to earn my bachelor’s degree, I applied to more than ten institutions, and all of them accepted nearly all my credits. I didn’t have any college debt when I left SMCC, and now I am earning a master’s degree at the University of Maine in Orono.”

“SMCC has provided me flexibility”

“I came to college 12 years after high school, and I’m planning to get a job in mechanical design after earning my degree in Architectural & Engineering Design. Thanks to SMCC, I’ve been able to juggle my academic work with a full-time job and the responsibilities that come with a family and a young son.”
