Students seeking to fast track their college degrees will have a chance to earn credit over the holiday season at UW-River Falls.

For the second year in a row, the University will offer a "J Term" of 25 undergraduate courses. They range from a half-credit to up to three semester credits.

According to Registrar Judy George, the course offerings are not only popular with UW-RF students, but also are appealing to students at other universities who will be spending their holiday break in western Wisconsin and the east metro area.

Enrolled UW-RF students may sign up through the Registrar's Office or via the Internet. Former students must apply for re-entry via the Registrar's Office, and new students should apply through the Admission's Office.

Tuition cost per credit is $119 for Wisconsin residents; $123 for Minnesota residents with reciprocity; and $380 for non-Wisconsin or Minnesota residents.

Dates for most courses are either Dec. 28-Jan 15., or Jan. 4-15.

Courses include introduction to biotechnology, fraud examination, principles of managerial finance, the computer in business, culture and business, principles of microeconomics, senior capstone social science, elementary statistical concepts, general psychology, introduction to sociology, sociology of diversity, deviant behavior, business and professional communication, racquetball, weight training, badminton, karate, health & fitness for life, outdoor recreation for winter, wrestling coaching, basic life support and CPR, content area literacy in middle and secondary schools, and freshman honors seminar.
