Registration is underway for The University of Wisconsin - Washington County’s (UW-WC) Winterim session, which runs January 3 - 20. Winterim provides a great opportunity for students and community members to use 13 days of winter break to complete a course in an accelerated format. Most UW System campuses have winter breaks that correspond with this session, allowing area college students home on break to also pick up some extra credits.
The six Winterim courses include: Medical Anthropology (ANT 350); Foundations of Chemistry (CHE 112); Introduction to Public Speaking (CTA 103); Theme in Literature: Ballroom Dancing (ENG 281); Trigonometry (MAT 113); and Jazz History & Appreciation (MUS 273). The Foundations of Chemistry and Trigonometry are 2 credits each and meet Monday through Thursday. The remaining courses are three credits each and meet Monday through Friday, allowing students to earn three credits in 13 days. There are no classes on Monday, January 16 (Martin Luther King) holiday.
Before registering for classes, students must be accepted for admission. To apply, visit www.uwhelp.wisconsin.edu or pick up an application from the Student Affairs Office at 400 University Drive, West Bend. Tuition of $187.61 per credit is due January 3, which is also the last day to register. The Foundations of Chemistry class is taught via streaming video and has an additional course delivery fee of $60. No advance deposit is required to register, however a fee of $100 is charged for any withdrawals after December 19, 2011.
