The January Term

Trinity’s J-Term allows students to enroll in a half-credit course during the winter break. Working closely with a faculty member in a small class setting, students can explore a broad range of innovative topics. Classes typically meet over 20 hours, between January 6 – 17, 2020, on campus and abroad.​

This January, we are offering classes from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives. Taking a course during the January break can be a focused, enriching academic experience. Plan ahead, discuss the possibilities with your adviser, and be sure to register early to secure a spot.

Priority registration for the upcoming on-campus J-Term opens on October 21 and closes on December 4.​​ Late J-Term registrations will be accepted through Tuesday, December 31, 2019. Registrations received after December 4 will be charged a $100 late fee.​​​​

January Term (J-Term) Study Away programs allow students to study abroad in short, intense bursts. Programs are offered over winter break, and provide students with discipline-specific global experiences that are led by trusted Trinity faculty. ​​Visit  J-Term Study Away for information about the application process, deadlines, program dates, and fees.

Please direct any questions about the J-Term to course instructors, the Registrar’s Office, or Dania Field​ in the Dean of Faculty’s Office.
