For the third year, Geneseo’s popular intersession term is expanding to include additional offerings of online courses for winter break. Last year’s enhanced intersession term was successful, with 44 courses offered online, many of them filled to capacity. This year will feature more than 70 online classes, many with double sessions, and more than 1,900 virtual seats available. The term, which runs January 4–29, 2021, allows students to earn upwards of four credits in the interval between fall and spring terms.

For Intersession 2021, the College is promoting courses that help to fulfill its commitment to "becoming an anti-racist college” with many new and existing courses focusing on racial justice.

Students can use the intersession term to accelerate their academic progress by fulfilling both major and general education requirements. They can also earn course credits directly from Geneseo—they don’t need to search for equivalent courses at other institutions or request approval to transfer credits.

Students can register for intersession at their spring pre-registration time slot; open registration for all students begins November 16. Those interested in taking an online course of study should visit the Course Schedule on KnightWeb for more information. Intersession courses will be available soon on Open SUNY as well. Further information can be found on the Intersession web page. These courses are available to matriculated students as well as non-matriculated students.
