Fall/Winter Session  --  Dec 15th - Jan 6th
Enrollment Deadline -- 11:59pm CST Dec.14th
 Course & Book List


You may take one course in a Winter Session term and no exceptions can be made.  Each course costs $501.75 along with additional course specific fees.  New students must fill out the application form.  A $20 non-refundable application processing fee is charged. 

Course textbooks are needed for most Winter Session courses. Textbooks can be purchased through Western's Online Bookstore. Please visit Western's Online Bookstore for important information regarding textbooks. 

All courses are online and 3 credit hours. No campus visits are required. All students will need access to the internet, a valid email address, and should be motivated self-starters as these courses have a semester of course work constrained to 21 days. Proctoring is required for certain exams and it will be the student's obligation to be prepared for this. Western utilizes Proctoru for exams.

These courses will be listed on your Western Fall 2023 transcript! Official transcripts can be requested at Official Tanscript Request as soon as grades are posted after the session is complete and grades are moved to transcripts. An unofficial transcript is available in MyWestern after the last day of classes.



You may enroll in up to 9 credit hours at Western before you submit your official high school transcript,  official college transcripts and official testing (ACT, SAT, ACCUPLACER) as long as you do not plan to enroll in any English, math or science courses. You are only allowed to enroll in 1 Winter Session course.

If you should ever exceed 9 credit hours or need to enroll in an English, math or science, you will be required to have all official documents (including testing) on file in the Admissions Office at Western before you can enroll or receive a transcript.

You will need to have appropriate testing scores on file in the  Admissions Office at Western if you wish to enroll in any English, math  or science courses or exceed the 9 hours.

When you submit ACT or SAT scores, you will need to meet or exceed  the required scores to clear your high school curricular deficiencies.  (See college catalog for details.)  If you do not meet or exceed those required scores, you would be required to take appropriate ACCUPLACER testing and enroll in the required developmental course/s at that time.

Developmental coursework must be completed within the first 24 attempted hours of college work.
