(October 4, 2016) - Finish a semester-length class in just three to four weeks during Winter Term! You can spend the time between Fall finals and the start of the Spring semester completing an academic-credit class. CSUN offers two Winter Term components, Dec. 24, 2016-Jan. 20, 2017, and Jan. 3-20, 2017. Take advantage of this very quiet time on campus. Or, avoid the commute altogether with an online course.
