COVID Response

Update: August 12, 2021
Starting this fall, the Maine Community College System (MCCS) will require all students attending classes in person to be vaccinated against COVID-19, due to the recent surge in cases attributed to the delta variant.
The MCCS Board of Trustees unanimously approved the updated COVID safety protocol on Thursday.

Update: July 29, 2021
While EMCC is open, we are asking that everyone on campus wear a mask regardless of vaccination status. Resident students are required to get the vaccine, as are students in particular medical fields with clinical experiences.
Please contact life@emcc.edu with any questions.

CARES Funding

APPLICATION for CARE Act Funds:
If you get questions from students please direct them to MyEMCC/Financial Aid/Federal CARES Act Application”. to apply.

It is very important to access this application through MyEMCC so it will be pre-populated with your student data.

Contact finaid@emcc.edu or businessoffice@emcc.edu with any questions.

The Federal CARES Act provides financial assistance to EMCC students who incurred expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus. We urge you to apply for this funding to help offset expenses you incurred due to the campus disruption caused when your classes were moved to remote or online instruction in March.
