Tech Pledge & Requirements

Required and Suggested Technology for YCCC Students
Starting in Fall 2020, students will be required to have a computer and a reliable internet connection, which in many cases
can be covered by financial aid. The computer requirement is to help ensure access to online courses via Brightspace, software and other electronic course materials, as well as access to online and virtual academic student support including tutoring, research assistance and the online success coach, which all contribute to student success.

Tech Pledge
In a pledge to incoming and returning students, Maine’s community colleges are announcing the “Tech Promise,” a commitment that students in need will have the technology and support they need for learning online.

“You bring the commitment to learn and we’ll make sure you have the tools you need,” said Maine Community College President David Daigler. “We have a lot of students who are interested in attending one of our seven colleges, but they’re hesitating because they just aren’t sure about the future. The Tech Promise erases at least one of those concerns.

“We are committed to the success of all our students, and the first step in this uncertain time is making sure they have the tools and support to be successful,” Daigler said. About 70 percent of classes are being delivered online this fall, with in-person instruction limited to critical hands-on instruction.  To read the full press release CLICK HERE.
