The inaugural Snowmester (November 30 through January 8th) will be an accelerated term designed for students to take advantage of the extended holiday break by enrolling in primarily online courses and continue their path toward graduation.

There will be a Snowmester program fee of $250 per credit hour. This program fee will be part of the students’ Spring 2021 semester bill.  Tuition will be calculated as part of the Spring semester, thus students registered for 12 or more credit hours during the conventional part of the Spring term will not incur tuition charges for Snowmester courses (simply the $250 per credit hour program fee).

Registration for Snowmester via CatCourse will be available at the same time that students register for Spring 2021 courses. Registration dates and times are based on total earned credits, excluding credits that students are registered for currently. Each registration day begins at 6:00 AM. Please refer to the Spring 2021 and Snowmester Registration Timetable for a breakdown of registration eligibility.
