In support of the upcoming advisement period, the following information is provided as a one-stop resource for faculty and staff assisting students who are interested in taking a course in Winter Session 2024.
Winter Session I: Dec. 19, 2023 - Jan. 16, 2024
Winter Session II: Jan. 2 - 16, 2024
No class requirements or assignments should be due on Monday, December 25, Monday, January 1 or Monday, January 15 in observance of Christmas, New Year's and Martin Luther King, Jr. holidays respectively. Administrative offices are closed on these dates. Winter Session 2024 Holiday Office Availability notes specific hours during the holiday break (available in December 2023).
The same time tickets and pins used for Spring 2024 apply to Winter Session. Students will register for Winter Session via MyRedDragon for the duration that online registration is open. As the term approaches, the process will move to an alternate registration method. The Registration FAQ page provides the specific registration dates and methods for current students. Please encourage students to register for Winter Session when they register for their Spring 2024 courses.

How many credits can a student take during Winter Session?
Students can register for a maximum of 5 credit hours during Winter Session. Associate Deans may approve a student for a credit overload of 6. Students will be directed to take at least one course in the 4-week term, but cannot take both courses in the 2-week term.
Students seeking to take coursework elsewhere via the permission to transfer process will still be subject to associate dean approval if credits exceed 5. When the student completes the permission to transfer process, Advisement and Transition will review their local schedule. However, given that students can register through the first day of the term, it is difficult to monitor if they were approved for permission to transfer, but had not yet enrolled in local coursework.
Regardless of credit hours, students should be advised of the condensed terms and the time commitment required to meet the course obligations.
Financial aid is not offered specifically for Winter Session. However, Winter Session charges can be included in a SUNY Cortland student’s cost of attendance to allow for additional loan eligibility for the academic year. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
Questions regarding billing, payments and refunds should be directed to Student Accounts at email@example.com. Payment for Winter Session 2024 is due on Friday, December 1. Tuition and fee charts are available for Winter Session. Students who do not provide payment by the due date will be deregistered.
