Courses By Topic

Course Registration

All students will be registering for Winterim 2022 courses using OnCampus. Courses may not be repeated from one year to the next unless otherwise indicated in the course description.

Each class will register on the corresponding date (see below).
Seniors – November 8, 6:00 p.m.
Juniors – November 10, 6:00 p.m.
Sophomores – November 15, 6:00 p.m.
Freshmen – November 17, 6:00 p.m.


Due to the concentrated framework of Winterim, consistent attendance is very important. Even one class missed is a significant absence. Absence of more than 15%, which may equate to only one or two classes, may result in no credit being awarded for the class. Winterim credits are required toward graduation credit. Parents are strongly discouraged from stretching Christmas vacation into Winterim. Each absence will be considered on an individual basis, taking into account the purpose or reason of the absence, as well as the student’s past academic and attendance records


All morning and afternoon courses receive one-half of a semester credit (.5) each while full-day courses receive a full (1.0) semester credit. Each student is required to earn one full Winterim credit per year as a graduation requirement.



Students are welcome to bring a lunch from home, but we will have our usual lunch menu available for purchase. There will not be soup or salad bar during Winterim. Students must eat lunch on campus.
