Learning Options

Convenient Learning Options Fit Your Busy Schedule

Some of these optinons are specifically designed for adult learners with a busy schedule who need additional flexibility and who are working toward their degree at an accelerated pace. In some cases the actual time spent in class is reduced.

Time-Shortened Courses
Time-shortened courses cover the same content as courses taught in the traditional semester… but they last either 8 weeks or 11 weeks, instead of the usual 15, so you finish faster. Choose from a wide variety of courses in many subject areas. In some cases, students will need to devote hours outside of class working on team or independent projects.

Distance Learning (online Courses and Degrees)
The SUNY Learning Network offers more than 1500 online courses from 55 campuses, including MCC, many of which may be fully transferable nationwide. The Distance Learning Program delivers courses to your home or office or the MCC Campus Computer Labs.

Some MCC programs may be completed entirely online, including: Business Administration (A.S.), Criminal Justice (A.S.), Criminal justice: Corrections Administration (A.A.S.), Criminal justice: Police Science (A.A.S.), Liberal Arts and Sciences – General Studies (A.S.), and Physical Education Studies (A.S.). For more information, call 1 (800) 875-6269 or visit the SLN website at: http://sin.suny.edu/sin or www.monroecc.edu. (Click the A-Z index for Distance Learning.)

Summer Sessions
Summer credit courses are five- to six-week sessions starting May and July. They’re offered days and evening at both MCC campuses and at our off-campus sites in Greece and Webster. Enrollment is open to any student who has satisfied course prerequisites. Summer Session courses are taught at an accelerated pace.

Co-ops for Adult Students
Adult MCC students who work full-time may use their current job to earn credit toward their degree program. Students doing co-ops also attend seminars two hours per week throughout the semester. These seminars provide an understanding of key management practices and workplace issues. Topics include: Motivation, Leadership, Group Dynamics and Team Concept, Sexual Harassment, Conflict/Stress, Problem Solving and Decision Making, Power and Influence.

Intersession is an abbreviated session offered in January that gives students a chance to complete a three-credit course between Fall and Spring semesters. You can earn three credits in three weeks.

Off-Campus Courses
Take an evening course at one of our off-campus locations and complete your coursework in 11 weeks vs. 15. Courses cover the same content as on-campus courses and meet the same academic standards.
