Students wearing mask walking on campus with "maymester" word

May 15 - June 1, 2021

Delgado Community College is joining a growing number of American colleges and universities providing opportunities for intensive study between spring and fall terms. Delgado's MaySession is designed to provide students with a wide range of educational opportunities to concentrate on a single area of study or master a skill, enrich study beyond the normal curriculum, lighten fall or spring semester academic loads, accelerate academic progress, remain on schedule for graduation or begin a journey to a new career.

Prospective students must understand that MaySession course content and rigor are comparable to those of other semesters and that the short term requires intensive study.

Who is eligible to enroll in a MaySession?
Continuing and new students are encouraged to enroll in Delgado's MaySession. New Students must apply to the MaySession.  

Can I use financial aid for MaySession?
Yes. All financial aid documents must be submitted by May 7. MaySession Financial aid will be part of your Spring Financial Aid award. If you accepted full loan and pell offers at Delgado or any other institution for their Spring Payment Period, you may not have funds available for MaySession.   

How many courses may I take during MaySession?
A typical full MaySession course load is one course. However, students are allowed to take a maximum of 6 credit hours during the MaySession. 

Will any academic support services be available during the MaySession?
Unfortunately, the tutoring facilities are closed during the MaySession for regular maintenance and improvements. 

How can I earn the same number of credits in two weeks that usually take 16 weeks?
MaySession courses are compressed. That means that you will master the same content that usually takes much longer.  An MaySession course is a serious commitment for a student. Students should expect to spend several hours a day on intersession coursework, and must adhere strictly to deadlines and timetables for completion of assignments and assessments. In a two week session, there is no time to catch up if you get behind. 

When will my grades be made available?
