Winter Term

The College of Idaho academic calendar includes a 4-week Winter term, intended to give students an intensive experience focused on a single course. At least 9 of the required 124 C of I credits must be earned in three separate January full-credit (3-4 credit) courses. A Winter course may be taken on campus, through a C of I off-campus program, or through an approved exchange with another 4-1-4 college. Transfer students admitted with at least sophomore standing must complete two Winter terms; transfer students with junior status or above must take at least one.

Students enrolled full-time in the Fall and/or Spring semester pay no additional tuition for Winter term. Students may elect to substitute one Summer term course for one Winter course.
