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. However, it typically lasts from mid-December through early January. Winter term course offerings vary by college, also; subjects include accounting, art appreciation, child development, English, fitness, history, psychology and many more.

Spring Classes Start in January

The weather will still be chilly, but Spring term credit classes begin Tuesday, Jan. 16.

When to Register:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 14-Sunday, Nov. 19: Priority registration for Winter and Spring classes (for returning students)
  • Monday, Nov. 20: Regular registration begins (open to all students). You can register for a Winter term class up until the first class meeting.
