Jumpstart the spring semester with APSU’s winter term
(Posted Nov. 8, 2018)
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The holiday season is approaching, which means college students from across Tennessee will soon return home to visit family and connect with old friends. For many, it’s a chance to catch up on sleep and relax after a busy semester, but for others, the long winter break offers an opportunity to get a jumpstart on the spring semester.
No matter where in Tennessee a student attends college, they can enroll in Austin Peay State University’s winter term and complete up to two classes that will transfer to their home institutions. The four-week term is completely online, and the University offers both undergraduate and graduate courses. And, thanks to a financial aid consortium agreement, students can use financial aid from their home school to help pay for the classes.
The winter term runs from Dec. 15, 2018, through Jan. 13, 2019. Successfully completed credit hours will be applied to an individual’s spring semester, and recent student success data by EAB, formerly the Education Advisory Board, shows that students who complete more than 15 hours a semester have higher GPAs and are more likely to graduate.
