Winter Intersession is a condensed 10-day course schedule of 3 credit general education courses that is part of the Spring semester. Taking a 3.0 credit course during Winter Intersession will allow you to satisfy requirements for your degree and will help you spring forward to graduation.
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 18, 19, 20, 23, 26, 27 and 30 & January 2, 3 and 6) in the Center for Technology Building.
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 2014 academic course load," may benefit from taking a Winter Intersession course.
NO, however, students are advised to register for no more than two (2) 3.0 credit courses during Winter Intersession.
Winter Intersession classes are being offered weekdays from December 18 – January 6 in ten (10) class sessions of 4-hour time blocks for each session. The classes are offered in the morning, afternoon or evening. All classes will be held in the Center for Technology (CFT). 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.
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.
Students will be billed tuition by credit in accordance with the college tuition and fee schedule. Additional information about tuition and fees is available online at http://www.essex.edu/bursar/tuition/
