Registration is now open for the 2023 Wintermester Session. The Winter Mini-mester (Wintermester) is a miniature semester that provides students with an additional opportunity, outside of the traditional academic terms, to expeditiously continue their college degree pursuits. All Wintermester sessions are offered asynchronously online, meaning there will be no on-campus instruction. Content and rigor are comparable to regular semesters and requires intensive study and assignment submissions.
Winter 2023 Course Dates: December 18, 2023 – January 12, 2024
Registration now open! The last day to register is December 18, 2023.
Financial Aid is available for those who qualify. Wintermester courses count toward fall enrollment when determining financial aid eligibility. Fall financial aid is disbursed and refunded prior to the start of the Wintermester; this means if a Wintermester course is added after aid has disbursed, the expense must be paid out of pocket.
If financial aid is based on Wintermester course enrollment, and the course is dropped as never attended, the drop could cause serious implications and/or reductions to already disbursed financial aid from the fall semester.
Satisfactory Academic Progress will be determined upon completion of the Wintermester courses.
For questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
