Winter Session 2022

Winter Session courses are offered completely online, and courses are delivered through Canvas, WSU’s learning management system. You may register for only one Winter Session course, and it cannot be your first course taken at WSU.

Winter Session courses are either three weeks in duration or six weeks in duration—but you will have access to your course space six weeks before the official start date of the 3-week Winter Session courses. You should plan to become familiar with the course space and complete any introductory activities before your Winter Session course begins.

Register in myWSU. Select Manage Classes, then Class Search and Enroll. Choose the 2022 Fall Semester term, select Global Campus for the campus, then from the Session menu select Winter Session. Visit the Register page for additional information.
