Winter Session 2023: Make the Most of Your Winter Recess

With online courses offered between the fall and spring semesters, students can accelerate their path to graduation or study an area of interest.

Winter Session 2023, offered by SDSU Global Campus, will include several courses never before offered during the four-week intersession.

 

Winter Session allows SDSU students to leverage their winter break to accelerate their education and makeup ground toward graduation. All Winter Session classes are online, so students can take classes from any location.

 

Since anyone can enroll in these online winter recess classes — including students from other colleges and universities, high school graduates, and working professionals — they also are a way to explore an area of interest or return to taking college courses after a break.

 

This is the fifth year Global Campus has sponsored Winter Session.

 

“Each year, this program has expanded to offer new courses and new opportunities to students, and we're looking forward to continuing that tradition,” said Jonny Holt, a Global Campus program manager who oversees Winter Session. “Our goal is to offer flexible, relevant material to help you achieve your goals.”

 

Besides helping students maintain progress toward graduation, winter session courses help students explore interests outside their major, and complete a course in less time than a regular semester.
