Winter Session undergraduate tuition will be at the standard 2021-2022 rate of $1,360 per credit, plus a registration fee of $55.
Current Seton Hall undergraduate students who take one 3-credit course will receive a $750 scholarship toward their Winter Session tuition. Please note that Winter Session is an independent session and is not part of Spring registration or tuition. Also, no additional financial aid is available for students in this program. Students cannot file FAFSA nor receive any federal or state aid which includes student or parent loans. The balance after the scholarship is applied to the student’s account. Visiting students are not eligible for this scholarship at this time.
All courses will be remote and most will run asynchronously January 4 - 18. Students will not come to campus for class meetings. Each course syllabus will outline its specific course delivery and requirements. In observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday, no Winter Session class meetings will be scheduled on January 17.
Asynchronous: A course does not have any listed days and times for meetings. The faculty member will have materials and assignments posted which can include recorded lectures, outside resources and group discussions that students work through on their own schedule. Asynchronous courses still have deadlines for assignments in most cases, but just not a routine meeting time. Asynchronous courses may have final exams scheduled during a set period at the end of the term, or students may be given a longer window of time to complete a final exam.
Synchronous: Students are expected to login to participate in the course at predetermined days and times. For example, Monday/Wednesday 1 – 2:15 p.m., Tuesday 4 – 6:30 p.m., etc. There are requirements outside of the meeting times for Synchronous courses which can include readings, research assignments, group projects and exams, to name a few.
Synchronous/Asynchronous Blend: A faculty member will split the format of a course. For instance, Course A may have only a meeting time of Monday 10 – 11 a.m. The faculty member has designed asynchronous learning and assignments, which when combined with that one hour of meeting time, meet the standards for a 3-credit course.
Once enrolled in a course, students should address any questions about a specific class or access to materials directly to the faculty member for the course.
