ATHENS, Ohio (May 25, 2004) -- Ohio University Without Boundaries is accepting course proposals for the Winter Intersession 2004. This teaching opportunity during winter break, Nov. 29 to Dec. 17, offers courses in a compressed format and may meet one, two or three weeks during this time period. The length of time required will depend on the faculty preference, credit hours and format.
More than 450 students on the Athens, Chillicothe, Lancaster and Southern campuses participated in Winter Intersession last year. The majority of courses offered during Intersession are Tier III, though courses that are in high demand and appeal to a large number of students, such as Business Law 255, have also been made available. Courses that may have low enrollments during the year but are required for specific majors have also been successfully offered during Intersession.
Course grades for Winter Intersession will appear on the winter 2005 grade report. Fees for Winter Intersession classes are paid separately and are not part of either fall or winter comprehensive fees. Registration for a Winter Intersession course will not prevent a student from registering for 20 credits during the regular Winter Quarter. Library hours will be extended during the three-week period to accommodate student and faculty needs.
Faculty will be paid on overload contract using overload pay scale for Winter Intersession courses. The deadline for submissions is July 26. A delay in placing a course in the schedule of classes has a negative effect on the course enrollment. Students begin checking for Winter Intersession courses during the summer. All approved courses will be listed and regularly added to the registrar’s Web page, but for inclusion in the printed schedule, courses should be submitted as soon as possible.
