Winter Session 2019–2020
Dec. 16, 2019–Jan. 13, 2020 (including Christmas and New Year’s Day)
The Winter Session is a great opportunity for students to accelerate their degree program, get ahead to study abroad, work toward a second major and explore other interests.
All classes are online and available to students who have completed at least two semesters.
Take a class and enjoy your winter break from anywhere!
Registration opens on Nov. 7 through the NEST.
Many courses fulfill the Magis Core requirements, but students should confirm with their advisor.

Frequently Asked Questions
Registration opens on Nov. 7, for all students using their Spring Semester registration PIN (even if they are not eligible to register for spring courses).

Yes, it is recommended that students meet with their advisor to discuss expectations of a Winter Session course.
Any student who has completed at least two semesters of full-time university coursework here or elsewhere can take winter term courses. This would include all students in their second year at Creighton and any students who transferred to Creighton from another college or University. Students completing their first semester of college are not normally eligible although they can petition the College of Arts and Sciences dean (through the associate dean) for an exception.
Because of the intense nature of each of the courses (taking 15 weeks of material and condensing it into 4 weeks) we allow students to register for only one course or one lecture/lab combination (4-credit hours maximum) in a given Winter Session.
If I register for a course and then change my mind, how (and when) can I drop or withdraw from the course?
Because of the accelerated nature of the term, the drop and withdrawal deadlines are also accelerated. If you do register for a course you should make note of these deadlines.
Students can drop a Winter course on the NEST up until 11:59 p.m. CST of the second day of the course (Dec. 17, 2019).
After the drop date, students can withdraw from a Winter course by completing the Winter Term Withdrawal Form and submitting the form as instructed. The withdrawal form must be submitted electronically by 11:59 p.m. CST on Jan. 4, 2020.
