Winter Session

Illinois State University will be piloting a winter session over the 2017-2018 winter break. This session will be considered a part of the spring 2018 semester, and has separate registration deadlines and requirements from the regular spring session.

Only continuing ISU students will be eligible to register for Winter Session classes. Students will only be allowed to enroll in ONE Winter Session class, and their enrolled credit hours will be counted in their spring 2018 semester academic load. Students on academic probation during the fall 2017 semester will not be allowed to enroll in Winter Session.
