SMCC to offer online summer courses, cancels in-person classes due to COVID-19

Southern Maine Community College is offering Summer Term courses online, but is not planning to hold any in-person classes because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The majority of classes that were previously scheduled will be offered online, while classes that cannot be held online have been canceled. The Summer Term begins May 26 and ends August 7.

“We don’t yet know the long-term impact of the pandemic, but we made this decision now to give students time to adjust their plans,” said Paul Charpentier, SMCC Vice President and Academic Dean. “Making the decision now to offer only online courses also gives our faculty time to enhance and optimize the online delivery of courses during the summer.”

Summer registration is now open. Students currently enrolled in a degree program can register using the MySMCC online student portal. Incoming degree-seeking students can register once they are accepted and have attended orientation.

People not enrolled in a degree program who simply want to take some courses will need to submit a registration form available online, but don’t need to apply for admission. To browse and register for available courses, interested persons can visit
