Ancilla College_We Believe in YouCollege students looking to earn extra college credit over the holiday break can enroll in Ancilla’s second annual winter term. The accredited college is offering five courses in an accelerated four-week winter term this year from Dec. 12 – Jan. 9.

“Ancilla is offering a winter term to help students who receive the Indiana State grant earn 30 credits by the end of the academic year,” said Vice President for Academics Dr. Joanna Blount.  “The Incentive Program, 15 to Finish, is sponsored by the Indiana Commission of Higher Education to encourage students to complete their degrees in a timely manner. Students with less than 30 credits could see a reduction in their state grant. Our winter term helps those students pick up an extra class between semesters. It is an excellent opportunity for those students home for the holidays as the courses are taught online.”

The three-credit courses include: Computer Literacy, Public Speaking, Cinema History, General Psychology and Introduction to Sociology and are all offered at a reduced tuition rate. Students can use our free application online at

The online courses are $1,110 plus materials, Blount said. Students will have access to their instructor’s notes, class presentations, tests and discussions 24 hours a day on Ancilla’s online course system.


Apply by Dec. 15 for free online at and select “Winter Term” in the application. Current students can apply through their advisor. Work will be due three times a week. Class size is limited to 30 students.
