“I had the chance to go to school after I was laid off from Dexter Shoe. I surprised myself by how well I adapted to classroom learning after 20 years out of school. I’ve made the Dean’s List and will graduate in May. I’m proof it can be done!”
We know that winter is a very busy time for our soon-to-be students, so our Orientation team has arranged several different dates for our Spring New Student Orientations. We invite all newly admitted students to register for orientation soon! Orientations are helpful for everything from learning more about EMCC to designing your course schedule with a staff member to verifying your financial aid package! New students should note that schedules are prepared at orientation, so if you don’t attend, we won’t have a schedule set up for you! You can sign up at www.emcc.edu/NSO, or give our Student Life staff a call at 207-974-4690 for assistance in registering for your Orientation!
Our campus offices are open – please stop by campus if you are dealing with any issues that you would like assistance resolving! We are always happy to help.
Our first day of classes will be held on Monday, January 13. Please be sure to check your schedules right up until classes start, as those are subject to change!
What Our Students Say About Our Orientations:
“I loved getting to getting to sit down with an advisor to make sure my schedule worked around my life!”
“I really enjoyed getting to know people at orientation.”
“I found the housing staff to be very helpful, I was able to apply and get most everything done right away!”
“I liked being about to get all the answers I needed after attending workshops. I also really liked being able to meet with staff individually in their offices and have their full attention. You don’t get that everywhere.”
“Orientation was so easy to follow along with! Everyone was very detailed in what they explained.”
“The best part of New Student Orientation was meeting my roommate!”
Online Orientation was the only option that works for me! How do I complete that?
