Academic Policies

Grades earned for Winterim are calculated into the student's cumulative totals for credits earned, GPA credits attempted, GPA and honor points.

For the purposes of academic standing and progress, Winterim will be treated as a separate term and will not negatively affect a student's registration eligibility. Students with less than good academic standing at the end of the Fall term may use the grade earned during Winterim to improve their academic standing. Conversely, the grade earned during Winterim will not be used to change a student's academic standing to dismissal. Students on academic dismissal at the end of the Fall term WILL be allowed to enroll in a Winterim course.

Grades and credits earned during Winterim will not count in the determination of academic distinctions or dean's honor lists for either the Fall or Spring terms. Winterim courses cannot be taken on an audit basis.

Students may take a maximum of 3 credits during Winterim.


Limited on campus housing is available for Winterim this year in Wells Hall for an additional cost (Current Starin Hall residents are permitted to stay in their rooms over the winter break period for no additional cost).   Students in need of housing during the Winterim break period will need to complete and submit a break period contract by December 9, 2013.  The residence halls close at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 19, 2013, and reopen for the spring semester on Sunday, January 19, 2014, at 9:00 a.m.   All students leaving the halls at the end of the semester (graduation, transferring, etc.) must be checked out of the halls prior to 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 19, 2013.  Any questions, please contact the Office of Residence Life at 262-472-4255.

Inclement Weather

The Chancellor is responsible for determining if, for the safety and welfare of the staff and students, the campus should be closed or classes cancelled because of inclement weather. Individuals who must travel to campus should use their judgment as to whether or not such travel is wise.

In the event of several weather conditions, all on-campus operations of UW-Whitewater will be carried on unless power outages or other critical circumstances preclude the use of university buildings. Therefore, it should be assumed that scheduled activities would continue unless instructions from the Chancellor's office direct to the contrary. Upon notification from the Chancellor, University Marketing and Media Relations will contact area media outlets concerning the cancellation of classes and/or campus closing. Radio stations are WSUW-FM, WFAW-AM, WSLD-FM, WTMJ-AM and WIBA-AM. Television stations are WTMJ, WISN, WITI, WVTV, WISC, WKOW, and WMTV.

If it is necessary to cancel a class because of the absence of a faculty member, it is the responsibility of that faculty member to notify his or her department chairperson and to schedule an appropriate make-up session. Students should contact the department of the course for information about the status of individual classes.
