Special Sessions

The College provides special sessions in January, May, and during the summer. These special sessions are scheduled primarily for the benefit of students matriculated at Manhattan College, but are also open to properly qualified applicants from other accredited institutions. By attending a special session a student may lighten his/her course load for subsequent periods of instruction, make up for deficient credits, or elect extra credits to diversify and enrich his/her academic program. A student may be required to attend a special session if his/her scholastic performance is poor, or if his/her record contains D or F grades in required, prerequisite or sequential courses. The College will normally not accept credits taken at another institution for required, prerequisite or sequential courses.

All special session courses are the same in the number and length of periods as those described in the Catalog for the normal academic semesters. Final examinations will be given in each course. Members of the regular teaching staff of the College constitute the special session faculty.

Students from other colleges must present written authorization from the Dean or other qualified official of their college to follow summer courses.

Special sessions are held in January, May, June and July. These short but intensive programs permit a full-time or part-time college student the opportunity to gain additional credits for self growth, enrichment, and to accelerate the completion of the degree process.

Schedules for special sessions are issued in November and April. The enrollment of a minimum number of students will be required for offering any course in the intersession or summer session.
