Winter term update

Some colleges and schools have decided to delay the start of the 2021 Winter Term to Monday, January 11. Depending on when the term starts for your college/program, there are different registration and withdrawal deadlines. Be sure that you are viewing information that is applicable to your college/program start date. 

If your program's term start date is January 11:

  • In the class registration system, the start dates listed for your classes will be incorrect. Please follow the schedule listed below.
  • If you withdraw from a class during the 50% to 75% tuition credit time periods, you will not receive the full tuition credit immediately—there will be a delay of a few days to manually process the tuition refund.
  • You will not be able to register in the classes through the class registration system from January 19 to 22. Learn how to register in a class with a January 11 start date from January 19 to 22 (instructions listed under the section 2021 Winter Term change of start date information).
