MCC is offering a range of accelerated classes starting February 5 and March 22. Presented in 12-week (February 5) and 8-week (March 22) formats, these accelerated classes allow students to earn needed credits in a compressed time frame.
MCC Foundation starts the year off by acknowledging the collective gifts of more than 80 first-time donors. Their gifts contributed a total of $45,000 in additional funds available to support Manchester Community College students with scholarships and emergency assistance.
The scholarships, managed by MCC Foundation, are based on merit and will be awarded to precision manufacturing students to cover tuition, books and supplies that students are required to provide, such as personal tooling.
This spring Angel Velez, of Hartford, is continuing at Manchester Community College toward his goal of an associate degree, thanks to the personal support of faculty and staff, their belief in his ability to succeed and a Connecticut state grant-supported program designed to enable students to persist.
