Registration Now Open for Winter 2021
Winter Session, one of the University's two "special sessions" that are held outside of the regular fall and spring semesters, offers a variety of benefits for AAP students.
View the AAP Winter 2021 Schedule. To learn more about each class, see our Winter 2021 course brochure.
AAP students must successfully complete 60 credits to obtain their Associate in Arts degree and transition to the Newark campus for completion of their bachelor's degree. Winter courses afford AAP students the opportunity to fulfill needed breadth requirements and make progress toward their degree.
Benefits of Winter Courses
Students often make use of Winter Session to explore a new interest or to increase their chances of success in a particularly challenging course. Additionally, for AAP students who struggle to balance work and other obligations with their regular-semester course loads, a winter course can make all the difference by reducing academic pressure during the fall and spring.
Special-session courses are an integral part of the AAP's commitment to helping students "Finish in Two," ensuring their timely transition to Newark while encouraging a healthy balance between their academic and personal lives.
Winter Rates and "Floating Credit" Option
Although Winter Session tuition is not covered by the SEED Scholarship, AAP winter courses are offered at one-third the cost of main-campus tuition for AAP students.
In addition, this year, undergraduate students have the option to “float” up to six credits from the fall semester to 2021 Winter Session at no additional cost. For students who felt challenged by the online learning environment during the fall 2020 semester, this option offers the opportunity to catch up on credits. AAP students are included in the floating credit initiative for AAP Winter Session courses. The maximum number of course credits spread across the fall-winter-summer terms covered by this provision is 18. For example, if a student takes 12 credits in fall, they will have six credit hours left to use in winter or summer. If a student has three floating credits and takes a four-credit class in winter, they will pay for just one credit.
