There is Still Time to Register for Fall Classes
Right now, MCC is enrolling students in 8-week accelerated classes starting on October 20. Day, evening, weekend and online courses are available, and students can earn up to three credits per course. The cost is only $152 per credit, and classes can be applied toward a degree or certificate at MCC or transfered to another school. If you have questions, call 860-512-3220 for registration information. Find out more in the 2014-15 Enrollment Guide.
What are Accelerated Courses?
Accelerated classes allow students to take courses in a short, concentrated timeframe on weekdays, weekends or online. Classes begin at five different times, during the fall and spring semester. These classes run for three, six or eight weeks instead of the normal 15-week timeframe. While the number of classes for each session is fewer than those in the regular fall and spring semesters, students should be aware that each course contains the same number of class hours as the 15-week 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. Accelerated courses are considered credit extension courses, and follow the credit extension tuition, fees and refund policies found in the 2014-15 Enrollment Guide.
