UHD to offer first ever, all-online Winter Term this December


 UHD's Interim Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs announced today that UHD will hold its first ever, all-online Winter Term from Dec. 27, 2010, to Jan. 14, 2011.

"Currently enrolled UHD students will be able to take one course during the session, and registration for Winter Term is tentatively set to open on Dec. 1," Dressman said.

UHD's online courses always fill quickly, and many students have expressed an interest in a mini-mester format, he said.

Tuition and fees will be slightly reduced from the cost of a single course in the fall or spring semester, and UHD plans to have short-term loans available for qualified students who enroll. Students who receive financial aid spring semester will be able to apply a portion of the aid to pay back loan for the course, he said.

More details about Winter Term will be announced as plans are finalized.
