“This is the first time in recent College history that Glenville State College has offered a winter term, which was implemented because we believe it can benefit our students by helping them reduce their time to graduation. It can also help reduce the course load in a given semester for students that need this relief. Students should also be aware that financial aid can be applied toward courses taken during the winter term. Moving forward we would like to see more courses offered during the winter term, that other opportunities be made available to our students such as offering courses abroad for credit, and that opportunities for professional development to be made available to the community at large. The Office of Academic Affairs will be monitoring what does and doesn’t work this term and making changes accordingly moving forward,” read a statement from the Office of Academic Affairs.
Tuition for GSC’s winter term is a $300 flat rate per credit hour with no extra fees. On campus students will be able to reside in the residence halls during winter term for free with arrangements for food at a discounted price through meal tickets from local restaurants.
