SRU’s Winter Session offers students a chance to ‘get ahead, stay ahead’
Oct. 28, 2019
SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. — Winter is no time to just chill out for Slippery Rock University students taking classes during SRU's Winter Session. Approximately 1,800 students are expected to take advantage of nearly 200 classes offered during the Dec. 18, 2019 to Jan. 13, 2020 time frame.
"Students use Winter Session to get ahead or to stay on track with their goal to graduate," said Amanda Yale, chief enrollment management officer. "The Winter Session provides students flexibility with online classes to get where they want to be, or need to be, in terms of earning their degree."
Nearly three quarters of the Winter Session course offerings are at the undergraduate level and include both Rock Studies liberal arts classes and major courses. The other quarter of the classes are at the graduate level. All Winter Session classes are offered online.
"Students should consider taking The Rock home with them during the semester break," Yale said. "They can study and learn online at home, all while earning credits toward their degree. It's just a great way get ahead and stay ahead."
Registration for Winter Session begins Nov. 4 for SRU students and Nov. 18 for students from other institutions, who, with permission, may transfer earned credits to their home institution. First-year and transfer students who had planned to start their SRU experience in the spring semester are eligible to enroll in the Winter Session.
