The Global Campus offers several ways you can quickly earn extra credits, and speed up your time to degree completion:

One-credit Courses

Need a credit or two? One-credit courses are offered spring semester with a mandatory face-to-face seminar held in March to coincide with the ASWSU Global Cougs’ Rendezvous event in Tacoma, Wash. ASWSU Global student government will help fuel your brain by providing lunch and coffee. The Rendezvous event also features door prizes, free museum passes to local museums, and a chance for you and your guests to mingle with online students and staff. Learn about Rendezvous

Summer Session

Summer session offers several shorter sessions, in addition to a 12 week session. The courses offered will vary by term. Below are the sessions offered:

  • Two six week sessions: The first session is from May – June, the second session runs from June – July
  • Eight week sessions: Typically from May through the end of June
  • 12 week term: Usually starts the second week of May through the last week of July

For course start and end dates, select the course section link shown directly below the course prefix and number in the Schedules of Classes. Also visit the Summer Session website.


Intersession lets you earn three credits in the three weeks between the summer and fall terms. The session typically runs from the end of July through the first half of August, and you'll be able to access the course space before the session begins. You can take only one course, due to the time commitment required.

Winter Session

Earn three credits in three weeks during WSU’s online Winter Session. Winter Session courses are available to all enrolled WSU students. You can take only one course, due to the time commitment required, but you'll have access to the course space the day after you register, so you can get a head start. The session typically begins after fall semester finals are over, and ends before the spring semester begins.
