2020-2021 Winter Intersession
With Winter Intersession 2020-2021, the University of Kentucky is joining a growing number of American colleges and universities providing opportunities for intensive study between fall and spring terms. UK's Winter Intersessions are designed to provide students with a wide range of educational opportunities to concentrate on a single area of study or master a skill, enrich study beyond the normal curriculum, lighten fall or spring semester academic loads, participate in an internship or educational travel, accelerate academic progress, or remain on schedule for graduation.
Prospective students must understand that Winter Intersession course content and rigor are comparable to those of other semesters and that the short term requires intensive study. For that reason, students are permitted to enroll for only one course. Students must focus their time and attention on that course, using the intensive class period and the holiday break, where applicable, to study and complete course assignments. Students with low grade point averages or significant competing time commitments during the Winter Intersession should not enroll.
