FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ST. LOUIS – October 25, 2012 – The University of Missouri–St. Louis School of Professional & Continuing Studies announces the 2013 Winter Intersession for January 7-19. UMSL gives students the opportunity to earn three credit hours in two weeks to help them reach their educational goals faster.
“The UMSL School of PCS encounters students on a daily basis who are highly motivated to complete their degree, but are frequently balancing the competing demands of family, work and school,” says Tom Walker, dean of PCS. “If you’re facing a particularly heavy academic load in the spring, or if you’re concerned about demanding personal or work commitments, a three-credit hour course in Winter Intersession could lighten the full spring semester load significantly.”
Any student wishing to reduce their full semester hours, get on a faster track to graduation, and improve their skills, may take advantage of the Winter Intersession at UMSL.
“Winter Intersesion has also proven popular for student athletes attempting to balance demanding practice and travel schedules with a rigorous academic schedule,” Walker says. “And it can be a great starting point for a lifelong learner wanting to test the waters of completing a degree or earning a second degree. Class sizes are small and instructors are available to help you on your academic journey.”
Pre-registration for currently enrolled UMSL undergraduate and graduate students begins November 5, 2012, and is conducted by appointment only. Currently enrolled UMSL students can register for Winter Intersession courses when registering for spring courses. Regular registration for those not currently an UMSL student begins November 19, 2012. New degree-seeking, visiting, non-degree seeking, and returning UMSL students must apply and be admitted to UMSL before registering for classes. The deadline for Winter Intersession registration is January 2, 2012.
Students enrolled in Winter Intersession courses are eligible to participate in the UMSL Metro Pass program. The cost for a Metro Pass is included in student fees, and no additional charges will be assessed to students.
