Maine Community College System (MCCS) has updated its COVID-19 safety protocols. For the 2021-22 academic year all in-person students and trainees are required to be vaccinated for COVID-19. Please continue reading for additional details. 

•This does not apply to students who are fully remote and will not be entering campus buildings for any purpose.  

• MCCS/NMCC will grant exemptions for individuals who cannot be vaccinated for documented medical reasons. Please see our COVID-19 Information and Updates Page for more information on medical exemptions.   

• The protocol applies to any student or trainee accessing MCCS/NMCC facilities, including our off-site education centers.  

• Students must provide proof they received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine prior to attending their first in-person class. Students who require a second dose of a vaccine must provide proof of the second dose no later than 30 days from the date of their first in-person class. This timetable ensures that all students will have had at least one shot before going inside a building, and that the entire on-campus student body will have completed their vaccinations approximately 30 days from the semester start. 

Booster shots are required 30 days after an individual becomes eligible. 

Proof of Vaccination/Booster Process 

Simply go to the NMCC Portal Home Page and click on, "COVID-19 Vaccination/Booster Submission Link" near the top of the page. You will then need to complete drop-down menus for the vaccination type and date of vaccination(s), then upload a picture or scanned image of your vaccination card. Finally, just click, "Submit Vaccination Information" . It's that easy!
