WVU Online offers a wide variety of courses during Winter Intersession

West Virginia University undergraduates looking to fit an extra course into their schedule, who want to boost their GPAs, or who simply want to make the most of their upcoming winter breaks can earn up to three credit hours during WVU Online’s “Winter Intersession,” Dec. 17-Jan. 3.

“Winter Intersession offers a flexible, online environment that allows students to take classes while still enjoying their winter break,” said Assistant Provost for Teaching and Learning Keith Bailey. “Students who are looking to earn credits, or those wanting to lessen their Spring 2018 academic course load, would benefit from participating in Winter Intersession.

“It’s also a great way for seniors to fit in a course they need in order to graduate on time in the spring.”

Bailey said students may register for Winter Intersession at the same time they sign up for spring classes, beginning at the end of October.
