Requirements for admission

Maine’s community colleges are open access institutions and seek to admit all students who meet certain minimum requirements.

In light of the disruption caused by COVID-19, the Maine Community College System has adopted a test optional status (Accuplacer/SAT/ACT) for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 academic years.

During this time, the Maine Community College System (MCCS) will use multiple measures which will include transcripts, college-level experience, and available test scores to make placement decisions. Additional placement assessments will be administered by the college after admission only if necessary.

Individual academic programs of study (such as nursing) may, however, have specific entrance requirements; contact the college admissions office and/or website for specific program entrance requirements.
