Winter Sessions: Get Ahead

Winter Session 2018 at SUNY Plattsburgh

Catch Up. Get Ahead. Improve Your G.P.A.

Who says life doesn't come with guarantees? Enroll in Winter Session at SUNY Plattsburgh and get what you have always wanted: guaranteed courses!

Yes, that's right. When you sign up for one of over 50 courses offered, you will get that course. Not excuses. Why do we guarantee our courses? Because we value you and your    time, and we want to help you succeed. We don't want you to stress out over last-minute course cancellations.

You may wonder why you should spend a few weeks this winter taking a course.

If you asked hundreds of students who took a winter session course in the past, they may tell you that winter session is a perfect time to catch up or get ahead on credits, improve your GPA, or take a course of personal interest. Plus, you will benefit from small classes and quality time with top-notch professors.

If you cannot attend winter classes at SUNY Plattsburgh, you can opt to take an online course from home, your dorm, or wherever you are!
