Winter Session 2018 will run from December 26, 2017 to January 20, 2018, with three-week on-campus classes beginning on January 2, 2018. We will update the Winter Session site in September. If you would like to receive an e-mail notice when this happens, please join our e-mail list. In the meantime, you may want to browse through the site to get an idea of what we offer.
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.
