Sign up for spring Intersession courses

(03-17-2010)

A window of opportunity is open at Adams State College. The newly established, Intersession Program is an opportunity to earn credits between semesters. Intersession offers highly-focused, short courses during a one- to eight-week time period.

The program was first delivered between the fall 2009 and spring 2010 semester. Associate Provost Frank Novotny developed the Intersession Program. "We had a wonderful pilot program. We know it works and are letting the world know."

Spring Intersession registration, for classes held May 1 -- June 30, starts April1. A variety of academic courses are offered including art, biology, business, history, music, philosophy, sociology, human performance and physical education, and financial literacy. "The spring Intersession will include a one-hour course on College Knowledge FACTS for K12," said Novotny.

The Intersession Program maximizes time and resources in order that students may graduate early, provides an opportunity for students to take general education courses in an accelerated format between semesters, provides a second chance to earn credit (NCAA eligibility, repeat courses), and provides high school students the opportunity to take college courses.

No admission requirements other than the registration process. Intersession is open to residential and nonresidential students. Select your course, register and pay for course. No financial aid is available. Courses will be assessed at an affordable fixed rate with no distinction made concerning the student's resident/nonresident status.

It is recommended students check with their academic advisers prior to taking the courses. Enrolling early helps ensure sufficient enrollment for the course and secures a place in the course for the student.

Future Intersession courses will be offered August 1 through September 30 and December 1 through January 31, 2011.

Adams State College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. For more information contact the Adams State Office of the Associate Provost at 719-587-7622 or email Intersession or visit Intersession.
