Child Development and Family Studies
"I loved being able to earn three credit hours in just three weeks compared to the six months. The suggested calendar of assignments was very beneficial to help stay on track. The professor was very supportive by providing feedback and announcement videos. Help was always a click away!"
"Assignments are given upfront, so you could work ahead of schedule. I can now graduate on time in the spring."
"Taking a class in winter is easy and fun. I also enjoyed the smaller class size."
Tinley Park, IL
"I enjoyed how easy it was to access the class, get through the class, the size of the class, and the professor!"
Finance and Economics
"As an out-of-state student, winter courses are much more affordable than summer. They also do not interfere with a summer internship. They are a great way to get a class out of the way during your free time over winter break."
Saint Albans, WV
"I liked how easy the course was to follow. Make sure you read everything and write down due dates."
