Winter Intersession Classes

Earn three credits in as little as three weeks.

Winter intersession offers an accelerated path of study, allowing you to focus on one course during a condensed period between the fall and spring semesters.

Intersession courses are held online, allowing you to enjoy your break at home while catching up on missed classes, getting ahead in your studies or lightening your course load for spring. Most credits can be transferred to other schools for visiting students.

Financial Aid

Students may apply for financial aid during intersession and may be eligible to receive funds through the Stafford Loan Program, the Pell Grant Program, or the PHEAA State Grant Program. Contact Financial Aid for more information.

Please note: Funds used during intersession may affect fall/spring eligibility.

Withdrawal and Refunds

A student who withdraws from courses, or from the University, by the fourth day of intersession will receive a refund of 50% of tuition and fees. No refunds will be issued to students who withdraw from courses or the University after this period.

Please note, once a student registers they will be billed the appropriate tuition charges. Students are not withdrawn from a course unless they have completed a withdrawal form, available at the Registrar's Office.

Tuition Reimbursements

You may submit a signed employer deferment agreement (.pdf) or third party payment agreement. This includes an agreement from a foreign government and must be submitted prior to start of semester.
