Yes, January Interim has been resurrected. UW-Green Bay has reinstituted its January Interim — now completely online — for January 2011. Students can select from 11 courses which will run Jan. 3 to 21. Registration begins this Friday (Oct. 15). Some will recall that the original January Interim was eliminated during the early 1990s as a cost-cutting measure. However, with the increasing popularity of online classes, the revival of January Interim is one way the University is trying to help reach UW System goals for increasing the four-year graduation rate. Students should watch hallway posters and ads in the Fourth Estate for a list of classes, or check online in the SIS system.
