Queens College’s winter session is soaring with more than 2,500 registrants, as the college has already seen a 57% gain in winter enrollment over the same period last year.  

Students have until Jan. 2, 2022 to register for the session, which will be held from Jan. 3 to Jan. 24. 

 “Today’s students are looking for flexible scheduling options,” Queens College President Frank Wu said. “Queens College’s winter session enables students to advance toward their degrees while still enjoying a holiday break. Most of these classes are presented remotely, for greater convenience. We want education to be accessible, and we can see how meeting student needs is good for everyone.”

Students may earn a total of four credits during the winter session. Over 85 undergraduate and graduate courses are offered in anthropology, the arts, computer science, foreign languages, music, nutrition, philosophy, political science, psychology, sociology, and much more. 

Some courses satisfy the Pathways general education requirements. Visiting students from other CUNY campuses are welcome to register at Queens College, but they must file an ePermit first.

Queens College produces more education graduates who become principals, teachers, and counselors for the city’s public schools than any other college in the metropolitan area. The college contributes to the local talent pool as a powerful economic engine and a leader in tech education. Students from across the country and around the world are attracted to study at the Aaron Copland School of Music. Its renowned faculty and alumni include nationally recognized composers, conductors, and performers who have received over 100 Grammy Awards and nominations.  

Queens College enjoys a national reputation for its liberal arts and sciences and pre-professional programs. With its graduate and undergraduate degrees, honors programs, and research and internship opportunities, the college helps its more than 18,000 students realize their potential in countless ways, assisted by an accessible, award-winning faculty.

Located on a beautiful, 80-acre campus in Flushing, the college has been cited by Princeton Review as one of America’s Best Value Colleges for four consecutive years, as well as being ranked a U.S. News and World Report Best College and Forbes Magazine Best Value College thanks to its outstanding academics, generous financial aid packages, and relatively low costs.
