Get More From Your Winter Break

Are you a highly motivated student who can devote time to an intense, fast-paced program of study? Then consider enrolling in a Winter term course. This “minimester” lets you earn three or more credit hours in just a few weeks.

The Winter term class schedule is different at each college but typically lasts from mid-December through early January. Winter term course offerings vary by college, also; subjects include accounting, child development, English, fitness, history, psychology and many more.

Think Spring!

The weather will still be chilly, but Spring term credit classes begin Tuesday, Jan. 20.

When to Register:

  • Regular registration is open to all students:
    Monday, Nov. 24, through Monday, Jan. 19 for Spring term classes (end dates for Winter term registration vary by college)
