SAN MARCOS – Enrollment is now open for the 2017 Winter Intersession term, which runs from Jan. 3 to Jan. 16, at California State University, San Marcos. The special term provides students with an opportunity to catch up on classes that were dropped or missed during the normal school year or to hasten time to degree completion.
Winter Intersession features accelerated courses that are offered at either the San Marcos campus or online. Registration is available to both current CSUSM students and students from other accredited colleges and universities, qualified high school seniors, and members of the community. Courses are fully transferrable to other accredited academic institutions, making these classes an especially good fit for students attending other colleges and universities who return home to North County, San Diego for the holidays.
Winter Intersession can also provide a head start for high school seniors who are considering CSUSM, since non-matriculated students are able to earn up to 24 credits that can be used down the road toward a degree from CSUSM. All courses are financial aid eligible.
“Winter Intersession is an amazing opportunity for students to earn a full semester’s-worth of college credit in just two short weeks,” Mike Schroder, dean of extended learning at CSUSM, said. “We have no shortage of courses for them to choose from, ranging from chemistry and kinesiology to sociology and music.”
