Central Maine Community College Reviews

The application process is so easy! There are many advisers who are willing to help. I found the transition here to go very smoothly. There general orientation process allowed for me to get to know the ins and outs of campus before even starting. Part of this orientation included an extensive description of the security on base and the many measures the college goes through to ensure the safety of its students. It also reviewed the educational resources that I now have at my fingertips, including free tutors.

Central Maine Community College (CMCC) is the first and only college I've attended.

The first thing you hear about CMCC is that safety is their first priority. They live up to this! Local police drive through at random times during the day and night - which adds to the feeling of security.

Some instructors are very knowledgeable in their courses, yet lack the skills to teach a course. Others arguably know little of their course, and teach it well regardless. These are outliers - my experience differs from that of my colleagues. My colleagues proclaimed excellence in their instructors through their time at CMCC.

Their second priority, in my opinion, is successful transfers. There is a "transfer fair" every month or so, where other Maine colleges reserve a table inside the main entrance of CMCC, and offer applications for transfer. The college maintains that *all* earned credits will transfer.

If a safe college with knowledgeable staff is what you seek, CMCC is worth the price.
Lots of programs, certificates, and training to choose from. They offer flexible schedules, easy course registration, and everything is very affordable. You can choose from two-year or four-year programs, and even have the choice to finish your degree sooner that that. The educators are eager to help students.
