Winter Session 2016 will run from December 26, 2015, to January 13, 2016, with three-week on-campus classes beginning on January 4, 2016. 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 2015 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.
What our students are saying
"A good way to be productive during the winter break. Also a good opportunity if you want to get a particular class out of the way."
