Students interested in taking a nine-day winter session course at Hudson Valley Community College will have an added incentive this year: free textbooks.

Winter session courses are offered completely online and compress a full semester’s worth of material into an accelerated term that runs from Jan. 3 through Jan. 13, 2022. These intensive courses are for committed students who wish to get ahead during the break between semesters.

“We recognize that many students struggle with the cost of higher education and want to earn college credit during the winter break. Covering the cost of their textbooks is one way we can help, so students can focus on their studies and stay on track to achieve their higher education goals,” said Hudson Valley President Roger A. Ramsammy.

In all, 15 online winter session courses are available for current or new students. Courses include, among others, Sociology, The Short Story, Computer Concepts and Applications, Principles of Marketing, General Psychology, Personal Finance, Business Law, American History, and Introduction to Criminal Law.

CARES Act funding provided to the college by the federal government will be used to cover the cost of the textbooks.

For more information about taking a winter session course, current students may contact their academic advisor. New students should contact Continuing Education.
