MassBay Community College to Welcome Students for Fall 2017 Semester on September 5

The College is also offering extended hours Monday – Thursday until 7 p.m. and two Saturdays (Saturday August 19 and 26 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Wellesley Hills campus) to accommodate student’s busy schedules to ensure they can meet with an academic advisor, register for classes, get financial aid questions answered, pay tuition bills, buy textbooks and more before the start of the semester.

“There is still plenty of time to register for fall courses at MassBay,” said MassBay Assistant Vice President of Enrollment Management Lisa Slavin.

“We are well aware that students are still deciding on what their fall plans might be and starting at or continuing at a community college is a wise decision. The cost savings, academic flexibility, and numerous transfer pathways – including the brand new Massachusetts Commonwealth Commitment and FSU@MassBay program, are only a few reasons why MassBay is right for so many students in the area. Take advantage of our extended hours and Saturday hours over the next few weeks to prepare to start class on Tuesday, September 5,” said Slavin.

MassBay offers a robust selection of online and in-person courses, including Financial Accounting, Biology, Global Business, Chemistry, Criminology, Computers and Technology, English, U.S. History, Marketing, Litigation for Paralegals, Spanish and more.

Students who complete online courses, learn the same course material as students who complete in-person classes.
