Cal State San Bernardino remains committed to student success and helping students make progress toward their degree during the winter break. As the campus is settling into semesters after converting from a quarter system, the university prepares to offer for the very first time a winter intersession, a compacted session between fall and spring semester, which will begin Dec. 18, 2020, and end Jan. 19, 2021. 

“I encourage our students to take full advantage of the winter intersession. It gives our students the opportunity to advance quicker in their academic journey and move closer to their future goals,” said CSUSB President Tomás D. Morales. “We are pleased to offer this new session to our campus community.”

This winter intersession, the campus is offering courses in a condensed virtual format, which allows for students to take courses both synchronously and asynchronously. This will allow students the flexibility of continuing with their studies in an accelerated format, and ensuring their safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Undergraduate fee is $320 per unit and graduate fee is $340 per unit. Please refer to the winter intersession website for additional fees. 

The university is working hard to continue its effort in identifying courses that meet the needs of students, especially those who are ready to graduate in the coming semester. The winter intersession course schedule will be available on Oct. 26 and registration will begin Nov. 9. Enrollment is open to all. Those interested are encouraged to act quickly and register on time as classes will fill up fast. 

“Winter intersession is a great opportunity for students to advance to their degree faster. In the future, when it will be safe to travel, we will be expanding course offerings to include exciting study abroad opportunities,” said Tatiana Karmanova, dean of the CSUSB College of Extended and Global Education, which is administering winter intersession.

Additional details regarding winter intersession can be found at the Winter Intersession website.
