Important Things to Know
Undergraduate Winter Session classes in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences are 4-week, fully online courses offered during the winter break.
Winter 2021 classes begin Dec. 20, 2021 and end Jan. 14, 2022.
Winter session counts toward your spring enrollment for financial aid purposes, and for calculating full or part-time student status in the spring. If between the hours you enroll in for the traditional spring semester and winter session exceed 20 hours, you will need to complete a request to enroll in excess hours.
Tuition and fees for winter session will be calculated together with your total spring enrollment, no additional fees apply for winter session enrollment outside of your normal tuition and fees assessment. Winter session occurs before financial aid refunds are dispersed. Expect to pay out of pocket for books and other expenses until funds are disbursed after the start of the spring semester.
Winter session classes are counted as any other course for determining Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) for financial aid. Remember to consider this carefully before dropping/withdrawing from a winter course.
