CT Community Colleges Offer Accelerated Classes this Spring


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.
