RSCC to start winter term

It’s new at Roane State; a winter term with numerous online classes that can help boost grade point averages or enable students to finish college faster.

Registration for the innovative program is from Nov. 11 through Dec. 5, and the classes will run from Dec. 16 through Jan. 16, with two days off for both the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.

Roane State students were polled to see if they might want to enroll in a winter term, and many expressed an interest, said Dr. Diane Ward, the college’s vice president for student learning.

The winter term could be used to retake a course, improve GPAs, lighten future course loads or complete studies earlier.

Those with an academic advisor can obtain counseling and a Personal Identification Number. The winter term ends the week before Roane State’s spring semester starts, Ward said. Current Roane state students can contact their success coach to get started. The registration PIN after fall semester will remain the same.
