When a desired course is full...
Students are encouraged to go on the waitlist in those instances when a desired course is full. Waitlists are monitored regularly, and students who meet all course requirements are automatically registered in the course if a seat opens up. The student on the waitlist with the highest number of completed credit hours will be the first to receive the next available seat. Waitlists in the Winter Intersession remain active until the first day of term. If no seats open up, students on the waitlist are notified when the list closed.

Financial Services

Tuition, fees and financial aid...

Tuition is billed by the credit hour at the currently in effect semester rate. View current rates. No student service fee is charged for the Winter Intersession.
