Syracuse University’s Winterlude session is part of the spring term and features classes covering a wide variety of topics, and they’re all online! Earn three credits in just four weeks, and boost your GPA, prepare for study abroad, or – if you’re a visiting student – transfer the credits to your home college. Winter break has never been so productive, without leaving home! Winterlude is considered a spring session.  Classes count toward your maximum unit level for the spring term.   Classes require payment of additional tuition charges.
