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.

MCC will be offering classes online, on campus or a combination of both during the Fall 2020 semester. Read about the course instruction choices on the Safe Learning Options page,

Finish Your Coursework Faster With Accelerated Classes

MCC offers 8- and 12-week accelerated courses in a large variety of subjects during the Fall and Spring semesters. Visit the course schedule and look in the “Title” and “Date” fields for these courses that are shorter in duration than the regular 15-week semester. Twelve-week classes start September 9; eight week classes start October 19.

New to MCC? Get started by applying online. Fill out the form, provide proof of high school or college graduation or GED, and submit proof of two doses of measles, mumps, rubella and varicella immunizations and you’ll be on your way to a degree or certificate.

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.
