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 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.

Q: How do I get prepared for the first class?
A: The first day of a WINTERmester course is like the first week of a semester length course. In order to be prepared for the rapid pace of the course, reading is usually required prior to the start of class. The pre-course assignment can be found in the course syllabus.

Q: Do employee tuition waivers work for WINTERmester?
A: Yes.

Q: What about parking during WINTERmester?
A: All UAF parking rules and regulations are in effect during WINTERmester. Decals are required and parking meters must be paid.

There may be a shuttle that runs from the Nenana parking lot during WINTERmester.  The all-campus shuttle will be available on call at 474-RIDE (474-7433).

Complimentary parking decal upgrades are available on a first-come basis for 55 WINTERmester students. A current UAF parking decal must be in place or the student can purchase one at the time the gold permit is requested. Both decals must be displayed. Stop by the Office of the Bursar in Signers' Hall to be issued a complimentary, non-transferrable upgrade to park in a specific gold lot during WINTERmester.
