Intersession and J-Term offer courses during winter break so students can earn credit hours in order to catch up, stay on track or get ahead.

What's the difference between the two sessions? Intersession classes meet Monday through Saturday for two weeks and J-Term classes meet Monday through Friday for three weeks. Both sessions begin on December 28, 2020.
