College Credits for High School Students

Eastern Maine Community College has many opportunities available for high school students to get a jump on their college education.

Students enrolled in publicly funded high schools or home-schooled in Maine are permitted to take up to a total of 12 credits annually, no more than 6 credits per semester. Enrollment in classes at multiple post-secondary institutions during the same term is permitted.

Talk to your guidance counselor at either your high school or your local CTE center to learn more. For more information contact advising@emcc.edu or call 207.974.4789.

The On Course for College program offers high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to enroll in college courses at EMCC. EMCC waives the cost of tuition and most fees; simply pay any service fees and the cost of textbooks.

These students completed the one-year Small Business Certificate through a dual enrollment program with United Technologies Center (UTC) and walked in the EMCC commencement ceremony before they had even officially graduated high school.

They now have the option to complete an Associate’s Degree in Business Management at EMCC in one year or to attend another institution after earning a year of college credits.
