Welcome

The "coolest" season at Cornell, Winter Session is a great opportunity to earn up to four credits in just a few weeks, enjoy small classes, concentrate on intensive study, and get to know your professor and classmates.

What our students are saying

"You learn so much and don't have competing classes or obligations--you can spend time with the material and schedules are more free. It's a great time to take a course you might find challenging."
