Still Time to Register for
Winterim Session at UW-Eau Claire

 MAILED:  Nov. 15, 2004

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's 2005 Winterim session, a three-week session that will run Jan. 3-21, will offer more than 60 classroom courses and five Web-based courses.

Winterim, which has been a part of the academic calendar at UW-Eau Claire since 1996, originally offered only 13 courses.

"This Winterim session provides such a rich array of course offerings compared to where we started just eight years ago," said Jan Morse, administrative officer for academic affairs. "I think with the number and variety of courses available, most students will find at least one course that will help them stay on track or get a step ahead on completing their degrees."

The Winterim course offerings allow current students to make the most of their winter breaks, Morse said. "Winterim is a wonderful opportunity for students to accelerate degree completion, catch up on those few credits that are needed to achieve the next class level or take a course that is in high demand during the fall and spring semesters," Morse said. Winterim also offers an opportunity for people not enrolled at the university to take a course.

Many juniors and seniors are aware of the benefits of the Winterim session, Morse said. "I hope that as the program offerings expand more freshmen and sophomores will see the many advantages of taking a course during Winterim — it's a benefit to all students."

Information about these and other course offerings is on UW-Eau Claire's Web site and on the Blugold System. Currently enrolled students and special students — including those not currently enrolled at UW-Eau Claire — can register up until the first day of class, but early registration is encouraged.
