Winter Session Melt/Drop Prevention

Posted By Bowling Green State University, Thursday, May 31, 2018

Hello, All!

BGSU is going to be starting our first Winter Session in 2019. We have had many discussions about student "melt/drop" during the weeks between Fall and Spring, specifically pertaining to students on warning or probation from Fall semester. We were wondering if you all had anything in place that helped prevent this? 

We are currently thinking of having a mandatory, variable credit, online course for these students to complete during Winter Session, which runs for 3 weeks. 

Please give us any insight, what worked/what didn't. Any information is appreciated.

Thank you!

Betsy Winters, BGSU

Special Student Support Services for Intersession

Posted By Owen Hooper, Thursday, May 3, 2018

Good Afternoon all!!!

As we begin to enter the joyous time of summer, I wanted to reach out to see if anyone coordinates special student support services during Intersessions, specifically Winter Sessions if they are occurring over Winter Break?

Is there a reduction of services during intersessions?  Do you compensate offices on campus to remain operational during times?  Do you serve as point for certain processes specifically during intersession that you do not during other terms?

Any help will be kindly appreciated and remembered in Portland.  The State of Florida BOG is looking to formalize policies around shortened terms so we are trying to see what is and isn't working.  

Have a wonderful day and good luck this summer!

Minimum Enrollments for Summer Courses

Posted By Caitlin Cochran, Friday, April 6, 2018

We are in the process of revising our minimum enrollment policy for summer credit undergraduate and graduate courses. How do you determine minimum enrollment for your summer courses? How does it compare to the fall and spring minimum enrollment policies? Finally, at what point do you determine whether to cancel or run a course?

Transfer Credit for Matriculating Students

Posted By Saint Louis University, Friday, April 6, 2018

Do any of your institutions disallow matriculating students to transfer in credits?

For example, a sophomore-level student takes an English course at the community college during the summer – can that student transfer that course into your institution to count as an English requirement?

Please respond here or email me at Thank you in advance.

Summer Programming for Transfer Students

Posted By Shelley Dempsey, Wednesday, April 4, 2018

Hi from South Carolina!  We are considering options for special programming for Transfer Students during the summer.  I think I've heard some of your campuses refer to "Transfer Institutes" in the past.  

I'm hoping to hear from those of you who can give input on what has worked well - and what hasn't been as successful.  

Our Winter Session 2018 pilot was a great success based on input from our NAASS colleagues, so I know your input on transfers will be just as helpful! 

Thank you, 


On Your Time Initiatives, University of South Carolina
