Fall 2020 Late Start Session

Oct. 6 - Dec. 18

Late-start classes allow students the flexibility to stay on track while earning SUNY credits that can be used to transfer to other schools or apply to a degree at Tompkins Cortland. Class selections focus on general education requirements and classes needed for most degrees at most institutions. Almost all of our offerings are fully remote too, so the transition is easy and convenient – and there’s big savings at a community college.

We’ve also offered online education for longer than almost any other community college, so our courses are fully developed and supported by a team of experienced professionals. Whatever the plan is for this year – changing schools, starting school for the first time, re-training for a new career – It Starts Here.

To Apply

If you are a student seeking a Tompkins Cortland degree, visit the Admissions page and start the admissions process. You can also email admissions or set up a virtual appointment if you have questions before you get started. 

Just looking to take a few classes?
