High School to College Partnerships


Eastern Maine Community College encourages students in high school to pursue college credit while still enrolled in high school! The College has agreements with high schools and career technical education centers in Maine.

On Course for College Program

The On Course for College Program is a fall and spring semester academic enrichment program for qualified high school juniors and seniors to enroll in college courses at EMCC. EMCC will waive the cost of tuition; the applicant is responsible for paying only fees and the cost of textbook(s) for the selected course(s).

Students are allowed to take one or two courses (3 to 6 credits) per semester; this program is not available during the summer session. The program is intended to provide students with the opportunity to supplement but not detract from their high school progress. Awarding high school credit for college work is at the discretion of the student’s high school.

Dual Enrollments

Eastern Maine Community College offers dual enrollments at many school and technical centers through Maine. Students participating in these classes will be registered by a staff member of EMCC or their high school instructor and will be issued a student ID number and login information to MyEMCC.   No post-registration form is required for the student to receive credit at EMCC.

Credit earned through dual enrollment may be transferred to other colleges or universities at the request of the student. The student must fill out the ‘Transcript & Record Request Form’ and submit it to EMCC’s Enrollment Center.
