"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!"

"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."
