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, 2021 to January 7, 2022. 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 offers students a wonderful opportunity to complete one class during the break and be that much closer to graduation. The compressed time makes the class intense, but it’s certainly well worth the effort,” said Director for Enrollment Services Renee Ojo-Ohikuare.

“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.

That 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.
