Student Involvement

Accepted applicants are required to provide thirty (30) hours of community service per each spring and fall semester in order to fulfill this component of the graduation requirements.  At Northeast Maritime Institute, we “Honor the Mariner” and will teach our students to honor their communities by giving back some of their own time integrity and pride.

 

All community service documentation must be submitted for each semester during the duration of the program to the Director of the Nautical Science Department. Any student not completing these requirements may file an extension to complete community service. This will only be accepted in extreme circumstances and degrees will be held until requirement is fulfilled.
