The University of Arkansas - Fort Smith will offer six classes in a new Winter Intersession Term from Dec. 10 through Jan. 11.
The intersession schedule is designed for currently enrolled students who might like to add a course to their schedule during the winter break. Registration deadline is Dec. 7.
Dr. Ray Wallace of Fort Smith, provost and senior vice chancellor, noted that the intersession courses will allow students to finish fall finals and then immediately complete an additional three-hour course before the spring semester begins in January.
“The University is offering this new schedule for students who might have dropped a course during the regular fall semester, who want to keep up with their course-load requirements for the Arkansas Academic Challenge Scholarship, or who simply want the option of taking an additional course during the break,” said Wallace.
Wallace said that students who enroll in a Winter Intersession Term course must attend all class sessions. The intersession classes will be offered from 9-11:35 a.m. Dec. 10-14, Dec. 17-21, Jan. 2-4 and Jan. 7-11.
“Since these courses are scheduled before and after the Christmas holidays, it is imperative that students attend all the scheduled class meetings,” he said.
The course selection includes Biological Science (BIOL 1153 - CRN 1614), Introduction to Speech Communication (SPCH 1203 - CRN 1615), Computer Applications for the Knowledge Worker (ITA 1003 - CRN 1616), American National Government (POLS 2753 - CRN 1617), General Psychology (PSYC 1163 - CRN 1618) and Beginning Algebra (MATH 0233 - CRN 1619).
Penny Pendleton of Fort Smith, dean of enrollment management, said the Winter Intersession Term meets a variety of student needs.
“The intersession is a great opportunity for students to meet their scholarship and credit hours completion requirements,” she said. “The intersession courses will count as spring 2013 enrollment for financial aid purposes.”
