Eastern Maine Community College offers a variety of online courses to provide you with the flexibility you need to continue your education and, simultaneously, fulfill your family, work, and life obligations. EMCC is approved by the New England Commission of Higher Education to offer more than 50% of two online programs – Business Management and Liberal Studies. For other EMCC programs, you may be able to take a blend of online and in-person classes to meet your certificate or degree requirements. EMCC’s online courses meet the same standards as our in-person classes, including assignment deadlines and rigorous content and assessments.

With online coursework, you’ll have access to course materials 24/7 with the flexibility to complete the assignments within the established deadlines. You’ll also be able to access faculty and staff to receive the support you need to be successful in your EMCC courses. EMCC uses a Learning Management System (LMS) called Brightspace. Brightspace is your online “classroom” where you’ll join in discussion forums, access assignment materials, take examinations, and view videos posted by your instructors.
