Reasons to Take a Winter Session Course

  • Improve your GPA.
  • Lighten your load during the academic year—strategic move—if you know you’re in for a busy semester bursting with schoolwork, social commitments, or part-time work.
  • Shorten the time to graduation by taking extra courses in the winter.
  • Take classes that are difficult to get into during the regular school year.
  • Obtain a minor or take added classes that will supplement your degree.
  • Fewer distractions from extracurricular activities—so your schedule isn't jammed with other commitments.
  • Shorter, more intensive classes—focus on a single subject.  Frequent, faster paced, more tightly structured—allowing students to fully invest in one subject.
  • Stay in the habit of studying and taking classes—keep your critical and analytical skills sharp.
  • Take a prerequisite.
  • Most winter classes are online—they allow for flexibility—you can still be at home or traveling and take these classes.
