Connecticut’s 12 community colleges will offer accelerated courses throughout spring semester, with start dates in February and March.

Students may earn up to four credits and take classes online or on-campus. Accelerated classes include the same amount of course work as a 15-week semester course, condensed into fewer sessions.

Accelerated classes can help round out a class schedule or help a student complete their degree faster. Visiting students are welcome and can check with their home college about transferring credits.
