ULM to Offer Wintersession Beginning in December

Due to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the University of Louisiana at Monroe will offer a Wintersession. Approximately 1000 ULM students were affected by the hurricanes, because of this and the fact that students displaced by Hurricane Rita were not able to register during the fall semester, ULM administrators have chosen to offer a Wintersession.

Wintersession classes will be offered both on-campus and on-line, with a focus on general education courses. They will run December 12 through January 12, and students will be allowed to register for up to 6 credit hours. No classes will be held during the period starting on December 23 and ending on January 1 because the university will be closed for winter break. Final examinations will occur on January 13.

The schedule of classes for Wintersession 2005 will be available on the ULM website on October 19, with on-line registration starting November 2 and ending December 7. All students are able to register for this session.

If you prefer another option, you might consider the on-line courses offered during the Sloan Semester ( Other alternatives can be investigated through the Louisiana Board of Regents on their website ( or by calling them at 866-415-2269.
