Discover Eastern Maine Community College

Eastern Maine Community College provides the highest quality post-secondary technical, career and transfer education and serves as a dynamic community and economic development resource.

EMCC is a two-year college specializing in technical, career and transfer education. Students feel comfortable and at home in this environment in which personal attention is given to each of the 2,550 students enrolled in programs or taking courses.

EMCC’s focus is associate degrees which prepare students for professional employment in highly technical fields. The associate degree in Liberal Studies and most other EMCC programs may be transferred to many of Maine’s four-year colleges and universities toward completion of a bachelor’s degree.

Education is lifelong. Students come to Eastern Maine Community College straight from high school, from the working world, and from the employment office. We offer a complete college experience that considers the needs of all of our students: campus housing, intercollegiate athletics and a variety of clubs, organizations and activities. Also, convenient multi-location access and a range of alternate scheduling options are available so students can attend classes where they live and work.

Eastern Maine Community College also has three off-campus centers in East Millinocket, Dover-Foxcroft and Ellsworth.

To Schedule a Tour

All tours originate from the Enrollment Center on the first floor of Katahdin Hall. We strongly encourage you to arrive 10 minutes prior to the designated departure time so that we can make every effort to begin and end on schedule. You may schedule a tour of our campus online. If you experience difficulties with submitting your request online, call 207-974-4679 or 1-800-286-9357 ext. 4679 (in Maine) to make your request.

Due to limited staffing as well as the class schedules of our Student Ambassadors, we cannot offer tours on demand. You must schedule a time and be present when the tour departs or we will be unable to accommodate you. If you find that none of the dates/times are convenient for your personal schedule you are welcome to drop by the Enrollment Center, pick up a “Campus Directory” and explore the campus on your own.
