Winter Session 2020

Our campus will offer 10 remote learning classes during its new Winter Session that will run from December 7, 2020, through January 15, 2021. The classes are open to students from all Pitt campuses and will be taught in an asynchronous format. This format means that the class is not bound to a particular time or location, including both the course content and assessments, leaving it up to the students when they participate. Students will have to follow class guidelines and meet key deadlines.

The Winter Session was developed with student success in mind. A Winter Session class can help students get ahead in credits, spread out their credit load between Winter Session and regular spring term classes, or catch up on credits by making up a class.

Financial Aid Information

Tuition for Winter Session is incorporated with the spring term. If a student’s total credits for Winter Session and Spring 2021 combined are less than 12 credits, they will be charged tuition on a per-credit basis plus part-time fees; if you are enrolled for 12-18 credits, you will be charged flat rate tuition plus full-time fees; and if you are enrolled for more than 18 credits, you will be charged flat rate tuition plus per-credit tuition for credits in excess of 18. You can use the optional spring 2021 payment plan for your combined Winter Session and spring term charges.

Financial aid disbursement, credit balance refunding, and the due date are the same as spring term:

  • Financial aid disbursement begins January 10
  • Refunding of credit balances begins January 11
  • The due date is February 1
