"Intersession" refers to the period in between regular university terms, and many colleges offer classes during these breaks for students who want to enhance or accelerate their education. Many colleges make these intersession classes available online for greater convenience and flexibility.
Intersession classes commonly compress a full college course into a four-week period of study.This offers a variety of advantages. It may allow the student to catch up on degree requirements, earn extra credits, take classes for professional development, lighten the workload during the regular term or shorten the time to graduation. Online classes may also have a lower tuition fee than those taken on campus.
