John Wood Community College is again offering a Winter Intersession for students interested in continuing their education during an accelerated timeframe. The online-only session runs for four weeks from December 14 to January 8. Courses range from one to three credit hours and students from any college or university may enroll.  High school students may also take the courses if approved by their school’s guidance counselor.

“The extended break can be extremely productive for students from any college or university, or even high school students who want to jumpstart their degree,” Andy Happekotte, Director of Advising and Retention said. “Four-weeks is a concentrated timeframe for classwork, but for the right students, it can be a great way to knockout a general education class at a much lower tuition rate to transfer back to their home institution.”

Non-JWCC students who complete a winter course can request a transcript to be sent to their home institution to transfer credit earned.

Classes offered include Health & Hygiene, Introduction to Humanities, Elementary Statistics, American Government, Human Relations in the Workplace, Introduction to Sociology, Fire Service Management, Coaching as a Profession, and Blazing Your Trail First Year Experience.
