As tuition continues to rise at the University of Connecticut, more students seek to graduate early in order to save time and money. Intersession courses are vital to early graduation, with Winter Session courses providing a convenient way to earn credits at an accelerated pace. However, prohibitive cost continues to limit the feasibility of using these courses to facilitate accelerated, affordable graduation. However, as of this coming Winter Session, online courses actually cost more than in-person courses. The Office of Summer and Winter Programs lists a winter online course as costing $1,542 per student, with in-person courses costing $1,482 for the same three-week period. Even with the additional need for online software capable of handling the instruction of large courses, the lack of facilities use and other conveniences afforded by online instruction should mean reduced cost.
