MiniMesters: Earn College Credits in Just 2 Weeks!

MiniMesters offer a unique opportunity to take a 2- to 4-credit college course in a compressed timeframe. These compact courses allow you to earn credits toward your degree, sharpen your professional skills or enjoy pursuing a passion. You don’t have to be enrolled as a student at Mitchell to take a class and the registration process is quick and easy.

MiniMester Sessions (January and May) are open to Mitchell College students and the public. All students are encouraged to discuss their course choices with an Academic Advisor BEFORE registering online. Internships during MiniMesters are available for current Mitchell students only and require prior permission.
