Winter Session provides an opportunity for students to earn credit toward their degree during winter break with a three-week, online intensive learning experience. The Division of Continuing Education works in partnership with faculty and departments to deliver a mix of course offerings to meet the needs of a variety of students and community members. We are particularly interested in offering our learning community a unique online experience that provides elements of experiential learning and promotes peer engagement among students.

Winter Session is treated as an accelerated term within the spring semester. Courses run from December 21, 2023 to January 11, 2024.

Winter Session Policies & Procedures

The Winter Session Faculty Handbook has the most up-to-date information regarding course proposal and course development procedures, program policies and teaching compensation. Faculty interested in proposing and teaching winter courses should become familiar with the handbook before proposing a course.

Course Development 

The online course design process begins in early September. We anticipate all course development will be completed by November 27, 2023. See below for a tentative schedule.
