Concurrent Enrollment

What is concurrent enrollment?

Through Eastern Maine Community College’s Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP), qualified students can earn college credit prior to high school graduation. The National Alliance for Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) defines a concurrent enrollment program as one that offers college courses to high school students:
• In the high school,
• During the regular school day,
• Taught by high school teachers.

How do I know that the courses are equivalent to what is being taught on the college campus?

Eastern Maine Community College is a member of NACEP and will be seeking NACEP accreditation. NACEP is a professional organization for high schools and colleges that fosters and supports rigorous concurrent enrollment. NACEP serves as a national accrediting body and supports all members by providing standards of excellence, research, communication, and advocacy. The EMCC CEP follows all of the NACEP standards.

Concurrent enrollment programs provide a unique and sustainable way to deliver rigorous curriculum to a broad range of high school students. They simultaneously provide a mechanism for delivering ongoing professional development to America’s most talented teachers.

Why take Concurrent Enrollment?

– Students get a head start on college courses.
– Duplication of classes is reduced, shortening the time necessary to earn a college degree.
– Students can develop study habits and critical thinking skills essential to college success.
– Courses facilitate transition from high school to college.
– Parents and students save money.
– New challenges are added to the junior and senior year.
– Undecided students can determine if college is right for them.

On Course for College

On Course for College

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.
