MCC Offers Accelerated Classes Starting September 12

MANCHESTER, Conn. (August 30, 2017) – Students can still add another course to their schedule, or earn credit toward a degree at another school, with MCC’s accelerated classes, starting September 12 (12 weeks) and October 16 (8 weeks).

MCC is offering a range of accelerated classes online or on campus — day, evening or weekend. Visit

Available accelerated classes can be found on myCommNet ( select “search for courses,” then Fall 2017 and Manchester Community College; under “Title,” look for those classes marked 8wk or 12wk. New students can apply now to the college; returning students can immediately choose from any of the accelerated fall courses.

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.

In addition, the MCC faculty is continually partnering with area colleges and universities, and local businesses and government, to develop new courses and programs that will not only meet future workforce needs of the state of Connecticut, but will also give students the strong academic foundation they need to transfer successfully to a baccalaureate school after completing their associate degree.
