Finish Your Coursework Faster With Accelerated Classes
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 offers classes online, on campus or a combination of both during the Spring 2021 semester. Read about the course instruction choices on the Safe Learning Options page.
. . . There’s Still Time
MCC is offering 12-week classes starting February 5 and 8-week classes starting March 18 . Visit the course schedule and choose the Spring semester or look in the “Title” and “Date” fields for these courses that are shorter in duration than the regular 15- week semester, marked “8wk” or “late start.”
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.

Paying for Your Classes
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.
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 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.
