Winter Intersession is an asynchronous online, intensive three-week session that offers the same credit as traditional semester-length classes.

Financial Aid During Winter Intersession


Enrollment Impact: Enrollment for the Winter Intersession seamlessly integrates with spring semester enrollment. This means that any courses taken during the intersession will be added to the overall spring course load.

Financial Aid: The Winter Intersession does not result in a separate financial aid award. Financial aid packages remain consistent throughout the academic year, encompassing both the intersession and spring semester.

Disbursements and Refunds: Disbursements for intersession enrollment commence during the second week of the regular spring semester.

Academic Engagement: For students receiving federally funded financial aid, active participation in academic activities during the intersession is crucial. The Office of Student Financial Assistance monitors academic engagement to facilitate the timely disbursement of federal aid. Learn more about confirming academic activity at this link.

Satisfactory Academic Progress: These evaluations occur at the conclusion of each semester—whether it’s fall, spring, or summer. The Winter Intersession does not independently impact these assessments; instead, overall performance across all terms determines Satisfactory Academic Progress.

Make the most of the Winter Intersessions by becoming in learning, connecting with peers, and advancing toward academic goals. For further inquiries, feel free to explore the comprehensive FAQs below.
