GODFREY – Students can earn full college credit in a number of transferrable online courses in just a fraction of the time with Lewis and Clark Community College’s Winter Intersession offerings.

Intersession courses run Dec. 21, 2020 through Jan. 15, 2021 – over the college’s winter break. All of the courses are completely online and most do not have any pre-requisites.

“Intersession courses are an opportunity for our students and for university students home for break to earn some general education credits and get ahead,” said Director of Enrollment and Advising Delfina Dornes. “Online courses do not have synchronous class meetings, so students can complete the work at their own pace throughout the four weeks, while enjoying some down time for the holidays.”
