Summer and Winter Sessions

MCC offers a wide range of credit courses during the summer and winter intersessions. Credits can be applied to a degree or certificate at MCC or transferred to another college or university.

What You Need to Know about Winter and Summer Courses

If you are registering to take a credit course and have never attended MCC or another Connecticut community college as a credit student, you are required to complete an Application for Admission.

Special Note: If you are attending another college or university and intend to transfer your MCC course(s) to your home institution, please check first that these credits are transferable to your school. There are no refunds past the allowable drop period, whether a course is transferable or not.

High School Students: If you are a high school student looking to take a summer course, you must provide the following:

  • Completed application
  • Letter of approval from a high school guidance counselor
  • High school transcripts
  • Proof of eligibility – this can be through appropriate SAT scores or by taking our assessment test. A letter from the high school is not proof of eligibility.

If you are registering for a course that has a prerequisite, you must submit an unofficial transcript to the Registrar’s office ( or fax 860-512-3221) as proof of having met the prerequisite.  Please include the course name and CRN in any correspondence.

You do NOT need to submit proof of high school completion or MMRV immunizations if you are a non-degree, non-matriculating student taking summer and/or winter intersession courses only.

Summer and Winter intersession courses are part of MCC’s credit extension program. Tuition and fees vary from those during the Fall and Spring semesters, and the refund policy is different. For tuition information, please refer to the credit-extension costs.

Credit extension programs are self-supporting. All courses are operated on an instruction fees-supported basis. Classes with insufficient enrollment will be cancelled.

View the summer or winter schedule on myCommNet. Registration is available online and you can print out a course confirmation at the end of the process.

For credit course prerequisites, see the catalog.

Financial aid may be available during the summer session for students with unused Pell money from the current academic year, and who are matriculated in a degree program at MCC. Visiting students will not be eligible for financial aid. For winter term coverage, please contact the Financial Aid office at 860-512-3380.

Full payment must accompany registration.

  • Cash
  • Credit Cards — We accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa.
  • Checks — Please make all checks payable to “MCC.” Please include student’s Social Security number or Banner ID on the check.

It is the responsibility of each student to know and comply with the college’s withdrawal and refund policies. Ignorance of policies or deadlines cannot be used as justification for a refund.

Textbooks and supplies can be purchased at the Bookstore in the Student Services Center. The Bookstore will be closed whenever the college is closed. For more information and Bookstore intersession hours, call 860-645-3140.

Please email the Admissions office or call 860-512-3210  for assistance with summer and winter session admissions and registration questions.
