Important Covid-19 Update 

Effective Immediately – the following policy applies at the UMM campus: 

The University of Maine System and SSC now require that all students have a Covid-19 vaccination shot in order to attend in-person classes.  Masks are optional at this time.

The class host will be asking anyone attending class in-person for proof of vaccination at the first session and will mark the attendance sheet accordingly.  Anyone signed up for an in-person class who is not vaccinated or that will not prove they are vaccinated will be asked to leave.  We will send out reminders to everyone before each class.  Zoom students are exempt from this. The best advice we have at this time is to carry your vaccination record and/or a copy with you at all times.  If asked, please show it.  


Online Registration is Open for our Summer and Fall 2022 Offerings!
