Winterim Classes Available For All College Students At UW-Waukesha

Dec. 19, 2010

UW-Waukesha Continuing Education is gearing up to hold Winterim credit classes on the UW-Waukesha Campus.

 

Winterim, the official time between Fall and Spring semester, where students are offered the opportunity to take classes over a three-week accelerated period from January 4th through the 21st. Those who take a class over Winterim get a head start; allowing them to take a lighter load the following Spring semester or perhaps get on track to graduate or transfer early.

 

UW-Waukesha Continuing Education offers classes to help fill in requirements for students. We offer classes in Natural Science, Social Science, Humanities and Ethnic Studies. Below are a listing of classes and class descriptions that we offer this Winterim.
