MCC Announces Accelerated Fall 2019 Classes Starting September 10, October 14

MANCHESTER, Conn. (September 3, 2019) – It is not too late to register for fall classes at Manchester Community College – and also accelerate toward a degree or certificate.

MCC is offering a range of accelerated classes, many starting Tuesday, September 10, and others starting Monday, October 14. Presented in 12-week or eight-week formats, these accelerated classes allow students to earn needed credits in a compressed time frame. Courses are offered either online or on campus.

Open courses are available in business office technology, computer aided drafting, computer software applications, computer technology, criminal justice, economics, engineering science, hospitality management, humanities, manufacturing and music studies.

Available accelerated classes can be found on myCommNet ( select “search for courses,” then Fall 2019 and Manchester Community College; under “Title,” look for those classes marked 12wk or 8wk2. New students can apply now to the college; returning students can immediately choose from any of the accelerated fall courses. Visit

While the number of class meetings for accelerated courses is fewer than 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.
