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.
There Is Still Time to Register for Fall Classes
Can’t make it during the week to get your registration in place? MCC will be open Saturday, August 24, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a last round of registrations before classes start on Tuesday, August 27.
Additionally, MCC is offering accelerated classes starting September 10 (12 weeks) and October 14 (i weeks). Search for courses on myCommNet and look for these dates in the “Date” column. A full range of classes is available, and can be used to finish at MCC faster, or applied to a degree at another school.
Need Info on Enrolling?
The 2019-20 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.
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.
