Very good points.  I do always have to do a prerequisite check on students who complete the mini to ensure they are eligible for their spring courses.

You might add that a lot of Winter Term involves students that are home for the holiday and need to get immediate credit. A standalone term allows us to process grades and send completed transcripts back to the mother university.

On the other hand, this also allows us to check pre-requisites that are completed in the fall. Secondly, the winter term may be a pre-requisite to spring.

We deliberately kept it as a stand-alone b/c if it's a "spring course," it doesn't help with spring athletic eligibility.  And if we put it in fall, that messes with our December graduation date.  We're stuck with a stand-alone which our FA tells me is not a federally-recognized term for PELL.  Since most of our winter students are transient and wouldn't be using FA with us anyhow, it hasn't been a problem, but I'm trying to find a way to address it.

Any thoughts?

Hi, Sandra.

Interestingly enough, our winter mini is considered a part of our spring term (not sure why – it’s one of those “we’ve always done it that way” situations).  I called our FA office, and they confirmed that students are eligible for aid, but it comes from their spring award.  Our winter mini courses are transcripted with our spring courses.

Two quick questions to tag onto this:

  1.  If your winter term is a stand-alone, is it transcripted as such, and is financial aid available?
  2.   If it is a session within your fall semester, is it transcripted in with other fall classes or designated separately, and does financial aid apply?
Thanks,
Sandra Clay

Hello, Everyone!
Our Community College institution is thinking about starting a mini-mester after our Fall term ends (or beginning one towards the end of the Fall term).
I know some of you offer “Wintermesters.”
Could you send me some info as to how you handle this kind of mini-mester?
If possible:
How long is your Wintermester?
Start date/End Date?
If the college is closed for winter break and this Wintermester is going on, which office is on campus to handle the activities of this wintermester (late registration, add/drops, rolls, grades, etc).

Any info you can give me is greatly appreciated.

Thank you and have a great week (and weekend)!
