Winter Registration

Winter break courses are offered from December 22, 2014 - January 9, 2015. All winter break courses are associated with the spring semester and are taught in an online format. Due to the condensed nature of these courses, students are only allowed to take one three-credit course.  If you wish to take more than three credits, you must obtain dean approval.
