Spring on the York College campus

Winter Intersession

Winter Intersession at York College is a three-week long academic experience (January 5-January 26), during which we will offer a selection of on-campus (in-person) and online courses. This is a great opportunity to earn extra credits toward your degree requirements, or perhaps retake a course to improve a grade that is not as high as you would like. 

To register, please complete the 2022 Winter Intersession Registration Form and return it to the Registrar's Office at registrar@ycp.edu

Intersession FAQs

  • How do I sign up?

    To register for the Intersession term, you must be enrolled for the Spring 2022 semester. Once you are enrolled as a student for the Spring 2022 semester, you can submit the completed 2022 Winter Intersession Registration Form to the Registrar’s Office at registrar@ycp.edu for processing. Please check the Schedule of Classes for Winter Intersession course offerings. Students are limited to taking a maximum of one course during the Intersession term. Continuing full time students should be in at least 12 hours in the regular spring term in addition to the intersession.

  • How is Intersession 2022 different from Intersession 2021?

    Given that this is the first year of in-person Winter Intersession courses, we are permitting students to live on campus if they are taking in-person courses. If you want to stay in your on-campus housing assignment in January and you have not done so already, please complete this Semester Break Stay Request Form. Also, the Johnson Dining Hall will be open for service during this period for your dining needs.

  • How will I be charged for an Intersession course?

    Please note your eligibility for Winter Intersession and the billing for Winter Intersession depends on your status:

    Continuing full-time undergraduate students must be enrolled in at least 12 credits in the Spring 2022 semester (i.e., full-time status in the Spring) to be eligible for Winter Intersession. For billing purposes, we will combine your Winter Intersession and Spring 2022 credits and you will be billed the full-time tuition rate up to 18 credits. Any credits over 18 (across the Winter Intersession and the Spring 2022 terms) will be billed at $620 per credit.

    Continuing part-time undergraduate students will be permitted to take a Winter Intersession course and you will be billed at the per credit rate.

    Graduate students will be permitted to take a Winter Intersession course and will be billed at the per credit rate.

  • Which CIC-OL courses are offered during Winter Intersession?

    There are a limited number of Intersession courses that are offered in collaboration with a partner college identified as CIC-OL.  Students taking any of these courses will be assessed an additional fee. 

    Please see the CIC-OL Course Descriptions for more information on the specific classes offered in the Intersession.  

  • Will I be permitted to live on campus during the Winter Intersession?

    If you are in campus housing Fall 2021 and Spring 2022, then you may stay in your current residence for the Winter Intersession.

  • What does it cost for me to live in campus housing during the Winter Intersession?

    There is no additional charge to your account for living on campus if you are taking a Winter Intersession course.

  • How will I pay for dining in the Johnson Dining Hall?

    The short answer is—you won’t. If you are living on campus and taking an in-person course, then your dining is at no additional charge.

    Yes, please check the Schmidt Library Hours for information about when you may access the building.

  • Will academic coaching and tutoring be available during Intersession?
