Important to Know

Academic Rigor

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.


If you are registering to take a credit course and are not currently enrolled in classes at CT State Community College, complete an application for admission

If you are attending another college or university and intend to transfer CT State course(s) to your home institution, please check first that these credits are transferable to your school. There are no refunds past the allowable drop period, whether a course is transferable or not.
