Academic Intersessions

Academic intersessions at Fairfield University offer students an accelerated path of study during spring and winter break. Depending on the time of year, courses are offered in either one-week intensive or three-week online formats, affording students the opportunity you to get ahead in their studies, catch up on missed classes, study one subject at a time, or lighten their course load during the regular semester.

Each intersession course features the same content, academic standards, and number of instructional hours as courses scheduled during the traditional spring and fall semesters, and most credits can be transferred to other schools, making Fairfield’s intersession courses an ideal option for visiting students.

Spring Break

Get ahead of your coursework and accelerate your degree program with a one-week intensive, three-credit course during spring break. Classes are available in a variety of disciplines and require some pre-work prior to the start of class.

Winter Break

Take advantage of the winter break and “sled ahead” of your studies by registering for one of Fairfield’s many Winter Intersession courses. Intensive, three-credit courses are available on campus in a concentrated one-week format or online in a convenient five-week format.
