Who Can Take Winter Session Classes?

Winter Session courses are open to all students, matriculated or non-matriculated, who meet the course prerequisites listed in the Schedule of Classes. Click on the CRN number or course title to see the course description, prerequisites, etc. There is no admission process for visiting students. Select classes are open to high school students, with written approval from the high school guidance office.
