Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How many credits can I take in WINTERmester?
A: Limit of three.

Q: Are WINTERmester credits counted in my total spring credit load?
A: Yes.

Q: What if WINTERmester causes a credit overload in my spring schedule?
A: 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.edu with their student ID and the requested WINTERmester course name and CRN. It is helpful to put "WINTERmester Credit Overload” in the subject line. Call 907-474-7500 for additional information.
