Shenandoah University is offering current undergraduate, incoming, and visiting students the chance to earn additional undergraduate credits this winter by taking a January term (J Term) course.
The J Term runs from Monday, Jan. 3, 2022, to Friday, Jan. 21, 2022, (no classes will be held on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, which is a day of remembrance and service at the university). The J Term will offer 14 face-to-face/hybrid courses with a significant experiential component, along with 16 online (synchronous and asynchronous) courses.
J Term Includes Discounted Tuition, Free Room, Discounted Board
One 3-credit class costs $495, or $165 per credit hour. Students are limited to ONE J Term class. No financial aid will be offered for J Term courses. If you have questions about your charge for J Term, please reach out to Hornet Central at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students deciding to return to campus as they take J Term classes will stay in their current room assignment at no extra charge**, and pay only $180 for their three weeks of board; those on campus can eat at the dining hall for brunch (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and dinner (4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.) every day, including weekends.
**Free room is available to any residential student taking a J Term class, regardless of delivery mode (regardless if the class is fully online, face-to-face, hybrid, or blended).
Exciting New Seminars And More!
New this year for the J Term are ShenEd Seminar courses, which delve deeper into themes introduced in the university’s First-Year Seminar (FYS) classes, and are open to all undergraduate students. These courses address a wide range of topics, similar to FYS, covering everything from equity in women’s sports and storytelling to mental health/alternative therapies and mural painting. The seminar courses (which are listed with the prefix SHEN) also satisfy ShenEd requirements (please check the J Term course listing to see which ShenEd spheres are associated with particular courses). Other face-to-face/hybrid courses are in environmental studies, exercise science, public health and business.
English, global studies, kinesiology, media & communication, psychology, Spanish, business and nursing courses are being offered online as well during the J Term. Several of these courses satisfy Shen Ed requirements.
