Fall 2012 Semester Start-Up Information

Aug 24, 2012

Dear Students:

I wanted to update you on several items prior to the start of classes next week. The college opens for the fall semester starting on Monday, August 27, 2012. 


Please print your schedule prior to your first class. Several room assignments have changed. Also, if you are waitlisted for a course, the waitlisted course will indicate ONYU on the printed schedule. It isn’t visible just by looking at your schedule on MyEMCC! If you ARE waitlisted, please attend the first class so the instructor will know you still want a spot in the course.

Alternative Parking Plan and Overflow Student Parking – Parking during the first two weeks of classes during the hours of 9am to 3pm will be at capacity.  We have record enrollment and we are completing a new parking that is not going to open until the end of next week.  So during the first two weeks of classes, we have rented a 200 space parking lot next to Rangeley Hall for overflow student parking (this is the former Eastern Maine Medical Center lot). When our on campus parking lots fill up, please follow the signage that is placed on campus directing students to this overflow lot.  We will be offering shuttle van service from this lot to the main campus during the hours of 7am to 4pm.  Extra security will be on hand to direct and guide students during the first several weeks of classes.

BAT Bus – All EMCC students can ride the Bangor Area Transit system (BAT bus) by using a current student ID card.  This means you can ride on this transportation system anywhere it travels.  Check out the Bangor BAT Schedule here. The BAT bus is a great way to save money on gas and also an excellent way to commute to campus or get around town! Last year EMCC students used over 22,500 rides.  This service is free of charge to all EMCC students.
