UW-River Falls Offers J Term Over Winter Break

Students wanting to get ahead in their major will have the opportunity to take courses over the holiday break at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

For the third year in a row, the University will offer 20 courses over "J Term." The credits range from a half-credit to three semester credits.

"Students can use their time wisely over J Term. They can earn up to three credits over break when they really wouldn't be doing anything else," noted Registrar Judy George.

Most students enrolled in J Term are from western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota, or within a 50-mile radius. Registration is through Dec. 23, or on the first day of class. Mail registration must be received in the Registrar's Office by Dec. 10. Enrolled UW-RF students may sign up in the Registrar's Office or via the Internet. Former students may register via the Web or the Registrar's Office, and new students should apply at the Admissions Office. A $100 registration fee is due prior to registration.

Tuition cost per credit is $127 for Wisconsin residents and for Minnesota residents with reciprocity, and $413 for non-Wisconsin or Minnesota residents.

Course dates are Dec. 28-Jan. 15, Jan. 3-7, Jan. 3-13, and Jan. 10-14.

Courses include principles of managerial finance; building marketing relationships; modern economics; principles of microeconomics; film aesthetics; civil war and film; senior capstone in social science; Mexico: a cultural experience; sociology of diversity; deviant behavior; fundamentals of oral communication; business and professional communication; independent study in speech communication and theater arts; weight training; badminton; health and fitness for life; and karate.

Courses may be cancelled if there are not enough students enrolled.
