Health & Accident Insurance
Student health insurance premium of $745 will be charged to students who are in a program and taking more than six credit hours in the Fall 2014 semester. You may waive this health insurance charge by completing an online waiver and provide proof of your own health insurance. The waiver must be completed by the deadline of September 21, 2014. Once we send the premiums to the insurance company, EMCC cannot remove the charge from your account.
Financial Aid grant or scholarship awards have been deducted from the amount due on your bill, pending any adjustments by the Student Financial Aid Office. Adjustments may be made due to changes to the student credit load for the current semester or a determination that the student is no longer making satisfactory academic progress for Title IV aid. Stafford Loan amounts will be reflected on your bill only after the Financial Aid Office has certified your loan application. If you were awarded financial aid and it is not reflected on your bill, please contact the Financial Aid Office at (207) 974-4625 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Books & Supplies
Payments for books and supplies are made directly to the Bookstore at the time of purchase. A on line Bookstore credit application must be accessed at MyEMCC student portal. You will be able to purchase your books using financial aid in excess of your bill. Student must provide the Bookstore staff with their current account ID card.
Semester room and board charges:
- Acadia – double occupancy per semester is $4165
- Kineo – double occupancy is $4565
- Students will not be permitted to move into the residence halls or dine at McCorkill Dining Hall until their bill is paid or payment arrangements are complete. Any changes in a payment arrangement must be approved by calling the Business Office staff at 974-4630. If a student defaults paying their account balance, a hold is placed on the student’s account and their McCorkill Dining card is deactivated.
Payment Plan Information
Eastern Maine Community College offers an installment payment plan option to all students. The EMCC monthly payment plan is designed to allow students to pay on their bill in three installments. Students who wish to participate must pay a plan enrollment fee of $50 and the first payment to EMCC prior to August 15, 2014. You must make your payment by the due date stated on your payment plan form. If payment is not received by the due date, a $50 late fee will be applied to your account. There are no bills mailed. All billing information is available on MyEMCC, and it is your responsibility to note changes and charges on your account. If you have questions visit EMCC Business Officein Maine Hall or call 974-4630.
If your tuition bill is being paid by a Federal, State, or Private Agency, you are responsible for providing Student Accounts staff with a current letter of intent or authorization by August 15, 2014. The letter must verify the name of the sponsored student, the terms/conditions of the sponsoring agency and details of tuition, fees, and books to be billed. Student Accounts will apply Financial Aid (Pell/SEOG/ME State Grant) funds awarded to your account before billing the sponsoring agency unless otherwise stated on the letter of intent or authorization. If the sponsoring agency requires Stafford Loans to be used, it must state that on the authorization. EMCC does not accept verbal authorization from sponsors. Authorizations and/or purchase orders may be faxed to the Student Accounts Office at (207) 974-4666. Without this authorization, we are required to bill you for all charges. If you have any questions, please stop in or call us at (207) 974-4818. We will try to assist you in making these arrangements.
Funds from a scholarship source will be credited to the student account when received.
Required Tools, Uniforms & Materials
These items are paid for by the student.
Financial Aid is disbursed to a student‘s account approximately five weeks into the semester. If a credit occurs, a refund check will be issued. That check will be mailed to the student’s permanent home address. No refund checks may be picked up at the college; they are disbursed at another location.
