High School Students

High school students have the opportunity to take courses at MCC while still enrolled in high school. Eligible students can expand or supplement their high school education, start their college education early, or take classes for personal enrichment. After completing MCC courses, high school students tend to be more confident, able to perform better in high school classes, and are more prepared for college, academically, socially, and intellectually.

Manchester Community College is becoming CT State Manchester on July 1, 2023. The CT State admissions application is now open for Fall 2023 enrollment.

Select an application below based on when you’d like to enroll.

All continuing, degree-seeking students will become CT State students as of July 1, 2023.

Credits earned at this stage of education can be applied to a MCC degree program or be transferred to another college/university. Depending on the number of credits earned, students can graduate with a college degree and pursue a career earlier, being more marketable to employers. In addition, high school students add a different perspective to the classroom, enriching the education of others.

To be eligible to take a courses, a few requirements must first be met:


  • Be in the junior or senior year of high school.
  • Complete an application and contact Mariah Thomas once submitted.

  • High school students can take classes during any semester (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer) on campus or online. Eligible tuition waiver will only be applied during the fall and spring semesters.
  • Once eligibility is approved, you may register at any time.
