Get Ready for Winter Intersession

Registration is underway for Essex County College’s Winter Intersession, where students can earn three college credits in just 10 days. Classes run from December 23, 2022 to January 6, 2023. All classes will be held virtually via Zoom.  

Each class is approximately 2 hours, 40 minutes in length. Classes are offered in the morning, afternoon and evening.

“Winter Intersession is a terrific opportunity for students to get ahead, complete a required prerequisite before the spring semester, or graduate on time or even early,” said Dr. Aylin Brandon, Executive Director for Enrollment Management and Services. She added the virtual classes make it convenient for students on break.

“We hope many of our students take advantage of Winter Intersession. This is just one way we are assisting students toward earning their degree in a timely fashion,” said ECC’s President, Dr. Augustine A. Boakye.

Winter Intersession is popular among college students. The compressed nature of the courses at ECC enables students to quickly earn credits, many times in a required class.  The Winter Intersession classes are for both Essex students and for those who attend another college or university and are home on holiday break.

Enrolling in a Winter Intersession class can result in savings, both in money and time, for students as they move toward graduation. 

Essex is offering Winter Intersession classes in such areas as English, history, business, sociology, art and music.
