Student Live-In Program

Southern Maine Community College

Location: Portland, ME

If you're looking to lower the cost of your college education, serve a community and save lives, the Southern Maine Community College Public Safety Student Live-in Program is for you!  Here's are some program essentials:

1) Dear Prospective Student Live-in Applicant introduces you to the live-in program, a partnership of SMCC and 16 Southern Maine communities offering more than 90 student live-in assignments in busy, progressive fire-EMS agencies.

2) The Live-in Program 1-sheet will give you general info.  Whether you want to earn a certificate or degree in Fire Science, Paramedicine, Criminal Justice or one of the 40 other degree programs @ SMCC, you can serve as a live-in student as long as you attend college full time (at least 12 credits per semester), complete Firefighter 1+2 and EMT training and meet your live-in station obligations.  Live-in students live at no charge at their station and serve as paid-on-call fire-EMS members.

3) Application for placement in the Live-in program.  Application deadline is 5/15/19 @ 1700 hours for the first round of live-in placements for fall, 2019.

4) 2019 Selection and Training Schedule :  We take an aggressive approach to getting our live-in students trained up and responding to emergency calls.

We look forward to hearing from you!
