No. Winter Term courses are taught online only. You must have at least one course in residence and be certified for at least 4 credit hours.
In general, if you have financial aid dollars available for Spring 2017, this aid can be used to pay for the Winter Term class you select. Your circumstance, however, may be unique. Contact APSU Office of Financial Aid with questions.
Financial aid may be used in the APSU Bookstore beginning December 2, 2016 for purchase of Winter Term books.
Payment for Winter Term classes is due before 9:00 PM CDT on December 10, 2016. In fact, if you are using financial aid, you must sign up for your Winter Term class AND all your Spring Term classes and then pay by December 10, 2016 to ensure all goes smoothly. In other words, if you are enrolling in a Winter Term course and Spring main campus courses, you must pay and confirm for Spring I - Ft. Campbell (which includes your Winter Term class) and Spring main campus classes.
Deferments are possible in certain circumstances but you must contact the APSU Office of Financial Aid to make arrangements. If you fail to confirm you Winter Term class before the payment deadline, you will be dropped (purged for non-payment) from the Winter Term course.
The 2016-2017 Winter Term course schedule is made up of undergraduate and graduate classes. Full undergraduate and graduate tuition and fee rates based on published main campus rates apply. The credit hours taken during Winter Term will not apply to Fall or Spring Term credit hour counts and therefore do not count toward any tuition discounts applied in those terms. All Winter Term classes are offered online and therefore will be assessed the online course fee in addition to regular tuition rates. All other fees normally assessed during other APSU terms including program and service fees and the cost of books will apply. Note: statements in this FAQ are intended as general information and are not meant to supersede official tuition and fee information. For details on fees and tuition, please click here.
