Students looking to fill an open spot in their schedule or pick up a few extra hours can now register for Spring II classes, a mini-term that opened registration on Jan. 18 and will begin Feb. 11.

Spring II is a 10-week supplemental term that allows for students to increase their course load by taking one of many classes offered in this condensed semester format. Most of the classes are conducted online, allowing for flexibility for students whose schedules may not have allowed for another regular spring term class.

“Spring II provides an excellent opportunity for students to pick up an additional class that can count toward their degree,” Jacob Jones, assistant university registrar, said. “Spring II also allows students who previously dropped a course and need to return to full-time status to do so easily.”

The University began offering a Spring II term in 2010, Jones said, to meet the needs and wishes of many students. Since then, many students and professors have taken advantage of the opportunity.

“There are 29 sections being offered for Spring II thus far,” Jones said. “A full list of these classes can be found by selecting ‘Look Up Classes’ in myBama. From there, students should select ‘Advanced Search,’ highlight all available subject codes and choose ‘Spring II (10 Week)’ in the part-of-term field.”

The courses offered, which span several departments and colleges, include an art history course, American history, microeconomics and an American studies course called “Reagan’s Cold War,” to name a few. The Honors College is also offering a Common Book Experience for Spring II.

The term ends April 26th, with finals scheduled for April 29. The last day to register or add a class for Spring II is Feb. 15.
