Final HCC Summer Session Starts July 5

BRIDGEPORT – Housatonic Community College’s final summer session starts July 5.

The session offers courses in biology, communications, English, history, mathematics, music, philosophy, physics, political science, psychology, sociology and Spanish. Tuition for a three-credit course is $475, including fees, compared to more than $1,500 or more at a local private college.

The session is appropriate for HCC students enrolled in associate degree or certificate programs, as well as students at other colleges and universities who are looking for quality transfer credits at an affordable cost.

While HCC’s credits transfer easily, students of other colleges are encouraged to clear their summer course plans with their college registrar or academic advisor.

Registration for the session is going on now. For course information, call 203-332-5100 (Admissions), 203-332-5056 or 203-332-5088.
