Having the chance to experience cultural immersion and gain an appreciation for various worldviews and customs is at the heart of the Core Program. This is one of the reasons why SJC instituted Winterim, an extended Christmas break that allows for students to take a course for credit in a foreign country. Winterim also offers many other courses for students and anyone who is interested.
Tuition is half the normal credit hour rate. For Term 13W, tuition was $455 per hour with a $15 technology fee per hour. Additional costs will be incurred for overseas travel.
For most students, financial aid will not be available. However, students should check with Student Financial Services for additional information.
Registration for Winterim will open each April prior to the term. Current and admitted prospective students can register for Winterim. An application process for SJC or STE students is not necessary. Students registering for Winterim non-study abroad courses may register at the times announced in the Catalog or Course Schedule.
Students participating in Winterim study-abroad courses must register no later than the Wednesday of add/drop week for the fall 2014 semester unless permission is given by the instructor.
This date will be the final commitment date for all courses that involve overseas travel. After the commitment date, there will be NO REFUND on the overseas travel expenses. Tuition and fees may be adjusted according to the refund policy.
No on-campus housing is available during Winterim.
