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 26, 2023 to January 9, 2024.    

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

“Winter Intersession is a wonderful opportunity for students to earn credits during an accelerated semester. This will enable them to complete a General Education course in only two weeks,” said Dr Alvin Williams, Executive Dean of Faculty & Academics.  

Registration information and courses offered can be found at:

“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.  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.
