Application Process

Northern Maine Community College is a college unlike any other, providing real-world education and hands-on experience. It is a close-knit group of staff and faculty dedicated to helping you become career or transfer ready.

The admissions office welcomes applications from anyone interested in pursuing higher education goals. Completion of a four-year high school program or a state high school equivalency certificate (GED, HiSET) is required for admission to associate degree and certificate programs. NMCC maintains a rolling admissions policy, allowing students to apply and be considered for acceptance throughout the year. All programs begin in the fall semester, however, January admission is possible for students who are interested in beginning their program of study with general education classes. Early application (9-10 months prior to the beginning of a given school year) is recommended because of enrollment capacities established for each program. All programs are offered to women and men. Students are encouraged to enroll in programs considered nontraditional for their gender.
