Written by WBTA STAFF on November 14, 2019
BATAVIA, NY (11/14/2019) Great news for college students everywhere! Whether they are commuter students to GCC, or living and attending a college or university far away, Genesee Community College has 13 college courses available completely ONLINE during the Winterim session that begins on December 9, 2019 and runs five weeks through January 8, 2020.
The courses offered during this session help any college student complete their general education requirements, pick up an interesting elective, start an introductory program-specific course, and also transfer SUNY college credit back to their “home-school” institution. GCC generally sends official college course transcripts to more than 500 colleges and universities across the United States each year, helping college students earn their degrees faster and more affordably!
“Each year, more and more students from other colleges are joining GCC students to take advantage of our Winterim sessions,” said Dr. Craig Lamb, dean of Distributive Learning, who oversees GCC’s Online Learning program. “Winterim at GCC provides the same quality instruction at a much more affordable credit hour rate. This helps students financially, but it also lightens their course load for the spring semester.”
In addition to an accelerated timeline to graduation, students looking to retain their New York State Excelsior Scholarship find Winterim courses maintain their credit hour requirements and eligibility. Since the courses are all offered online, students enjoy the flexibility of studying on their own schedule from wherever they choose! Without venturing to a campus location, students can earn college credit and still have time to enjoy their semester break.
Among the options are College Composition (ENG101), Microeconomics (ECO101), World Civilizations (HIS101), General Psychology (PSY101), Business Communications (BUS106), and Hip Hop Culture (MUS107) provides a fun and fascinating elective!
The complete list of courses being offered during Winterim is available online and students are encouraged to sign up quickly as seats are limited.
