Winter Session registration begins Oct. 24

Last year, nearly 700 students took advantage of the first completely online, three-week Winter Session at the University of Maine. For its second year, the term has grown to include 26 courses offered through UMaineOnline.

Winter Session will run Dec. 27 through Jan. 14. Registration begins Oct. 24. The 26 courses include several high-demand courses that fulfill general education requirements, as well as a few 300- and 400-level options. Winter Session courses are intensive, with students earning three credits in three weeks. Because the session is capped at four credits, students are able to focus on one course while enjoying the holidays.

Students continue to have access to year-round online courses and Summer University beginning with a three-week May Term. Winter Session is an additional opportunity to Think 30, a campuswide initiative that encourages students to take 30 credits per year in order to graduate in four years, saving valuable time and reducing student loan debt.
