Wednesday, May 20, 2020

School with sculpture WELLESLEY HILLS, Mass. (May 19, 2020) — MassBay Community College has moved all summer 2020 courses to an online or a remote learning format. This summer, MassBay has three summer sessions that all area students can take advantage of to accelerate their education.

Summer Session I (10-week session)     May 18–July 24
Summer Session II (6-week-1 session)     May 18–June 26
Summer Session III (6-week-2 session)     July 6–August 14

“With more than 300 courses available to students, our online courses are available to a wide-audience,” said MassBay Interim Assistant Vice President of Enrollment Management, Alison McCarty. “We are at a critical point during the coronavirus and MassBay is ready to help our students continue towards their education goals. We have heard from many new students who have recently found themselves laid off and need to learn new skills to re-enter the workforce; under-skilled workers who currently have the time to earn that credential to push them forward in their career; area college students who are looking for an alternative more cost-effective way to complete their general education requirements; or high school seniors who want to take an online course before they start their freshman year of college. We are here to help the community with our remote learning format.”

MassBay courses are $218 per credit and courses are typically three credits, or roughly $654 per class. Financial aid and scholarships are available for students who are enrolled in summer classes.
