Winter Intersession 2014 FAQs

 

 

What is Winter Intersession?

A part of the Spring Semester, Winter Intersession is a condensed course schedule of 3 credits, primarily general education classes. A Winter Intersession course will allow you to satisfy requirements for your degree and will help you spring forward to graduation. Students are encouraged to register for one (1) but are advised to register for no more than two (2) 3.0 credit courses during Winter Intersession. There are 10 session of classes which are condensed and taught in 4 hour class blocks.

 

What courses are offered and when will courses be held?

ECC is offering a number of general education courses that meet many degree requirements. View a complete list of available courses at www.essex.edu. Classes meet for 10 sessions: (December 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 26, 29, 30 & January 2, 5) in the Center for Technology Building (CFT) and/or the Center for Health Sciences (CHS) building.

 

Who can register for Intersession classes? What about “pre-requisites” for a course?

Matriculated ECC students in good academic standing who have met the pre-requisite requirements can register for Intersession courses.

 

Non-matriculated students who have met the pre-requisite requirements can also register, however, they must first fill out an admission application in Enrollment Services and provide transcripts to show pre-requisites are met. Applications will be accepted until 4 pm, December 17, 2014.
NOTE: Prerequisites for each course can be found in the online College Catalog, www.essex.edu/onlinecatalog

 

Who might benefit from taking a Winter Intersession course?

There are many students who can benefit from taking a short-term condensed class. Students who are looking to spring forward to graduating on time and need to take a general education class. Students who received a non-passing grade in an offered general education course can re-take a course; since they are already familiar with the course content, they will hopefully succeed in the condensed timeframe. Students who are looking to quickly earn credits in a required general education course, or who are looking to “lighten their Spring 2015 academic course load,” may benefit from taking a Winter Intersession course.

 

Is there a maximum amount of credits I can take during Winter Intersession?

Students are encouraged to register for one (1) but are advised to register for no more than two (2) 3.0 credit courses during Winter Intersession.

 

I’ve never taken a Winter Intersession course, what can I expect?

Winter Intersession classes are being offered weekdays from December 17 – January 5 in ten (10) class sessions of 4-hour time blocks for each session. The classes are offered in the morning, afternoon or evening. It is important that students attend ALL classes. Because of the condensed schedule, missing one class is equivalent to missing almost two weeks of a regular fall/spring semester class. To support your success in the class, a computer lab will be open in the CFT building every day classes are in session.

 

What do I do if there is a hold/restriction on my record?

Students who have hold/restriction on their records must contact the office that placed the hold on their record and reconcile the situation with that office before enrolling.
