APSU students can stay on track to graduation with new Winter Term

11/8/2011

Students at Austin Peay State University wanting to get ahead and stay on track to graduation can take an online course during the University’s new Winter Term.

Winter Term courses begin Dec. 18 and end Jan. 27. The new term offers undergraduate students the opportunity to complete one class in just six weeks. All courses are offered online and include in-demand courses.

The new term is expected to help students stay focused on completing credits toward a degree.

“We are committed to offering every opportunity that we can to help our students succeed and progress toward graduation,” said Dr. Tristan Denley, provost and vice president of academic affairs at APSU. “We are really excited about being able to offer this new semester and the new facet of flexibility that it will provide.”

During Winter Term, students will have access to campus resources, including D2L support.

Current APSU students can register for Winter Term at the same time they register for spring classes, which is Nov. 14-25. They also may use spring semester financial aid to cover the cost of a course in Winter Term.

Because the term will coincide with the University’s holiday year-end break, no class activity will occur on Dec. 24, 25 and 31, or on Jan. 1. The Winter Term overlaps Spring I and Spring 2012 terms by two weeks.
