The Minimester provides students the opportunity to take classes during the three-week break between the Fall and Spring semesters. The credits received during the Minimester are equivalent to credits earned during the regular semesters. The Minimester is also open to non-Morgan students. The current Minimester Schedule may be viewed on-line here. Course descriptions are published in the on-line undergraduate catalog.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can anyone take Minimester classes at Morgan State University?
A. Yes. Morgan and non-Morgan students are eligible to take classes during the Minimester session.
