Central Maine Community College in Auburn has announced that any Maine student who is graduating with the high school class of 2020 is eligible to take advantage of free online college classes this summer at CMCC. The other six Maine community colleges are also offering free summer courses as a “Gift to High School Class of 2020.”

“The Class of 2020 has lost a lot this spring, from missing out on proms and traditional graduation ceremonies to a disruption of their college and work plans,” said David Daigler, president of the Maine Community College System, in announcing the MCCS Gift to the Class of 2020. “Summer jobs are likely to be in short supply which makes it hard to earn money to help with college expenses and gain valuable work experience. We hope this can save the Class of 2020 significant time and money in reaching their college and career goals. We can’t replace what they have lost, but we can offer to help them keep moving forward.”

At CMCC, a special eight-week term starting Monday, June 1, and six-week term starting in July, will be offered. Students can explore their interests, earn college credit, and save money and time as they move toward their college and career goals.
