CFCC Winter Session Offers Students a Way to Get Ahead on Their Degrees
WILMINGTON, NC – Cape Fear Community College is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the virtual 2020 Winter Session. The Winter Session is a 4-week term that offers classes to degree-seeking students and consists of classes that can be transferred to all North Carolina community colleges, as well as most NC four-year colleges and universities. CFCC’s Winter Session courses will be offered online in order to maximize student access to courses and help them make additional progress on degrees at their home institutions.
The Winter Session offerings for the 2020 session include courses in art, computer science, English, history, mathematics, music, philosophy, psychology, and sociology, all of which are Universal General Education Transfer Components courses. These classes have been universally approved for transfer to most degree-granting four-year colleges and universities in North Carolina. In order to simplify the process for students, a list of the current offerings is available online at cfcc.edu/winter , with full course descriptions – along with UNC System school equivalent course numbers, which correlate to courses at their home institutions.
“We realize that both Cape Fear Community College students and university students from around the state may want to use the winter break to progress with their studies,” said CFCC Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Jason Chaffin. “While rigorous, these accelerated, short-term classes are a great and affordable way for students to reduce their spring term class-loads.”
Current and recent CFCC students can access registration for the Winter Session through their student portals, while new students should follow the new student enrollment steps prior to registration. Specific details on the process for both new and existing students can be found at cfcc.edu/winter . Courses in the Winter Session are accelerated and time-intensive; CFCC suggests that students take only one course per Winter Session.
The winter session starts Nov. 30, 2020 and ends Dec. 30, 2020.
