What You Need to Know About Winterim

Are you looking to stay busy during the extended break between semesters?  Would you like to get ahead and have the satisfaction of checking off a course?  Need to make up a class from a previous semester?  Do you have an interest that you would like to explore further?  Look no further than Winterim!

Holy Family University is offering courses that are a week and a half in length and cover various subjects.  Winterim is the unofficial name for a period between the fall and spring academic semesters.  These courses are scheduled to begin on December 26 and run through January 4.  The format is all online and each class will cover 42 hours of instructional time for a typical three-credit course.

These are accelerated courses, but they are a great way to stay on track in order to graduate in four years.  Additionally, Winterim helps to lessen your course loads in other semesters.  This intersession can provide students an opportunity to take classes across academic disciplines.  No matter your situation—from falling behind to getting ahead—Winterim is the answer.

The Winterim courses Holy Family offers range from general education courses such as English 101 to more major specific courses such as a Senior Seminar in Business Policy.  A full list of available courses can be found under the self-service tab on the Holy Family website.  The deadline to register is December 18 at noon, so do not delay your decision.  Good luck!
