Registration for Summer Courses at MCLA Now Available

March 2, 2023

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) announces that registration for summer class sessions is now open. Registration is open to MCLA students, interested community members, high school students, those pursuing a master’s degree, and Berkshires-based college students who wish to earn credits toward their degree from another institution. 

MCLA is offering two summer sessions, held in North Adams, Pittsfield, and online. Session A runs May 22–June 30, 2023, and Session B runs July 3–August 11, 2023. MCLA now offers more than 50 online courses, along with summer evening courses, to accommodate the schedules of working adults, undergraduates, and high school students. 

Summer classes are a way to earn prerequisite or elective credits toward your degree between semesters in an accelerated format. With options to fit every schedule and affordable rates, summer sessions can help college students home for the summer complete prerequisite courses for their degree. Many current MCLA students elect to stay in the Berkshires for the summer to earn credits that will help them balance their spring and fall course loads or toward a double major, minor, or concentration.
