Intersession 2018 seeks course proposals

Intersession 2017 registered around 1,800 students—that was about 33 percent of the total undergraduate population of Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts & Sciences and G.W.C. Whiting School of Engineering.

It is now time to start planning the curriculum for Intersession 2018, keeping in mind that we need course offerings to meet students' needs in the core requirements, as well as courses that consider those out-of-the-ordinary topics that attract Hopkins students to take part in this program.

All course proposals must be submitted using the Summer and Intersession online course proposal submission system.

The online course proposal submission form for Intersession 2018 is now live. Please log in using your JHED ID and password. Proposals are due by Sept. 29. If you do not have a JHED ID, please speak to the academic coordinator for the sponsoring department and request that they enter the course for you.

If you taught a course in the past, please contact Rita Trulinos at for reactivation. Whether resurrecting a course or submitting a new proposal, please confirm all information is correct, including course number and class schedule, or communicate edits, if needed. If a preferred schedule is not entered, a schedule will be created by OSIP.

Course Selection Process

Course offerings will be carefully selected in consultation with the academic departments giving credit for the class. The final decision on whether to offer a proposed course rests solely with the Office of Summer and Intersession Programs. Please note that not all proposed courses can be scheduled, due to financial constraints.

Instructors may teach only one course, and all courses are graded S/U. Instructors may be asked to revise their proposal to better suit the program.

Remuneration is $1,000 for teaching a 1-credit course and $1,500 for teaching a 2-credit course. In order to maximize our instructional budget, we will limit the number of 2-credit courses offered.

Cancellations: The minimum enrollment required for a course to run is 10 students. Courses that fall below this minimum may be canceled. Instructors and students will be notified by Dec. 19.
