Winona State adds winter term beginning Dec. 11

WINONA, Minn. (WKBT) — Winona State University announced Monday that it will provide a variety of online classes throughout winter break to help students keep learning during the COVID-19 epidemic.

The interim semester, called J Term, will run from Dec. 11, 2020, to Jan. 10, 2021.

J Term classes can help students who may be feeling behind or who are looking for an opportunity to fast track their time to graduation. These online courses are also open to outside students and adult learners looking to earn college credits or increase their knowledge.

Dr. Darrell Newton, the new Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Winona State, was instrumental in working with the WSU Cabinet to introduce a J Term to the university. “Besides J Term being an excellent way for students to complete certain classes as the spring semester approaches, it allows our faculty to offer even more courses online for those students who can’t make it to campus, or who choose to travel over the break,” he explained in a release.
