IUPUI has announced its plans for the remainder of the fall semester and into the spring semester. The university says the winter session, which will run from December 21 through February 7, will include six weeks of instruction and a one-week break.
IUPUI says students have the option for six-week or three-week online classes, and all classes are part of spring banded tuition, during the winter session.
“The winter session can help students complete a course toward graduation in a short, condensed format,” said Jay Gladden, associate vice chancellor for undergraduate education. “Additionally, the price for 12 to 18 credit hours across the winter and the spring is the same. If you are taking 15 credits or less, the addition of a winter-session course will not cost anything.”
The spring semester is scheduled to start January 19, and IUPUI says it will be completely virtual through February 7. From February 8 through the end of the semester, some classes will then return to in-person instruction.
“Since this is the first time we have done the winter session, the hardest part has been educating the campus community on the various options available to them,” said Gladden.
IUPUI says students should register at their appointed time to reserve the classes they want to take in the spring.
