MCC Can Get You in the Class You Need, When You Need It


Manchester Community College is the most popular two-year college choice among recent Connecticut high school grads and 4th out of all colleges and universities.


Registration is now open for winter 2018-19. Applications are being accepted for new students who want to enroll during this session, which runs December 26, 2018 through January 11, 2019.

Students can earn up to four credits per course in three weeks. Courses include topics in accounting, art, astronomy, biology, business, communication, computers, criminal justice, digital arts, economics, English, health, history, humanities, philosophy, psychology and sociology. Online and traditional classroom sections are available.

In addition, the winter intersession is open to all non-MCC students who want to accelerate their studies and transfer the credits they earn back to their home institutions. Students looking to do this must check to make sure the credit(s) are transferable back to their institution, as there are no refunds past the allowable drop period whether the course is transferable or not.

Students who have not taken a credited course at MCC or any of the Connecticut community colleges must pay a non-refundable $20 application fee, accompanied by an MCC application.

Need Info on Enrolling?

The 2018-19 Enrollment Guide is available online. It contains information about the enrollment process; important dates and deadlines for admissions, financial aid, testing, registration, and payment of tuition and fees; and more. Information on the steps needed to apply and register for classes can be found on the “Get Started” page.


 The Most Important Piece of Information

Make sure you put together a solid plan for paying your tuition. If you haven’t already, apply for financial aid and, please note, you have to apply each year.

If you are not eligible for financial aid, please remember that a portion of your tuition and fees  – if not all – are due at the time you register. A payment plan is available.

There may also be some scholarship money available. The library has put together an online guide that might help.

Don’t go through the process of designing your ideal schedule just to be dropped for non-payment. Plan early.


About Accelerated Courses

While the number of weeks for each accelerated session is much shorter than those of the regular fall and spring semesters, students should be aware that each course contains the same number of class hours as the regular semester. As a result, the level of study is much more intensive and demanding of time. Students should consider this in planning their time and course selection.

About Online Courses

Although MCC’s online courses provide flexibility that allow students to access information and participate in course discussions anytime and anywhere via a computer and an Internet connection, these are not self-paced courses. Just as in any MCC course, students will have weekly deadlines for assignments, discussions and assessments. The content and expectations in an online course are the same as in an on-campus course at MCC. Online courses require a great deal of reading and writing, as well as strong computer literacy and time management skills. Students should review the information on the ETDL website at www.manchestercc.edu/blackboard. This site includes information about how to log into Blackboard Learn, where to get help, technical requirements for your computer and other resources.
