Frequently Asked Questions

How many credits can I take in WINTERmester?

  • Limit of three.

Are WINTERmester credits counted in my total spring credit load?

  • Yes.

What if WINTERmester causes a credit overload in my spring schedule?

  • Banner will not accept a registration that creates a credit overload without prior authorization. It is understood that a WINTERmester course is offered in a separate time frame from other spring courses, but Banner doesn’t see it that way.

    To get overload permission entered into Banner to take a WINTERmester course, students can email registrar@uaf.eduwith their student ID and the requested WINTERmester course name and CRN.
