What Happens Next?
Once you are admitted to EMCC, you’ll need to make sure that you complete a number of enrollment activities including:
Tuition Deposit. To reserve your place as a member of the incoming class, you must pay a $75 tuition deposit within 30 days of receiving your acceptance letter. This deposit will be applied to your first semester tuition bill. Refunds are only issued if written notification of non-enrollment is sent to the Admissions Office before May 1 (September 15 for spring enrollment). Students admitted and making a deposit after that date will have 30 days from the date of acceptance to request a refund.
Residence Hall Application. If you plan to live on campus, you must complete and submit a residence hall application along with a $100 room deposit. Students are housed on a first-come, first served basis.
Placement Assessment. To ensure your academic success, EMCC uses a placement assessment to gather information about your academic skills in English and mathematics. The results of the assessment, used in conjunction with your academic background, goals, and interests will determine the courses you take during your first semester at EMCC. Unless noted otherwise below, you must attend a placement assessment, advising and class scheduling session. You should be prepared to spend up to 3 hours to complete this very important activity. Because class schedules are prepared on a first-come, first-served basis, students who complete this activity early will have more choices and better scheduling options.
Financial Aid. To receive financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Eastern Maine Community College’s Title IV Code, 005277, must be included on your FAFSA. Priority consideration for financial assistance is given to students whose FAFSA is processed prior to May 1. Late FAFSA applicants will be considered for financial aid on a first-come, first-served basis. Be advised that you will be required to make satisfactory payment arrangements on your bill if your financial aid is not available before your bill is due, or if your award is not enough to cover your bill in full.
Health Form, Immunization, and Physical Form. All students must complete a health form and provide proof of one diphtheria-tetanus; and two measles, mumps and rubella immunizations prior to the start of classes. Students enrolling in Medical Radiography and Nursing must also follow the enclosed guidelines regarding physical examinations.
