What is WINTERmester?

Are you a highly motivated, hard working student?  This is an opportunity for you to finish 3 credits in January before spring semester starts!

WINTERmester is a highly compressed session where students can earn up to three credits in nine days.  Look over the WINTERmester schedule to find the course you need.  Students considering a 100 or 200 level WINTERmester course must have a minimum 2.5 GPA.

If you are up for the challenge, look into WINTERmester for credit and non-credit courses.

Registration begins November 10 at UAOnline for degree-seeking students.  All others register using the secure WINTERmester registration form beginning November 17.
