Special Sessions

The Special Sessions area within the College of Extended & International Education offers a wide variety of individual courses and programs for university credit to matriculating as well as nonmatriculating students during the three week winter and spring intersession as well as, during the fall, spring and summer terms. Special Sessions programs are uniquely designed to accommodate the needs of a given population. In some cases, the completion of a program may culminate in a bachelor's or master's degree while in others it may result in a certificate or credential. Because Special Sessions courses are self-supporting, tuition is charged. The following list reflects the current Special Sessions programs and contact persons.
