Make the Most of your Winter Break!

What is Allen Term?
Allen Term refers to the weeks between the end of the Fall Semester and the beginning of the Spring Semester when students can take Alfred University courses on-line. It is often referred to as Winter Term at other colleges and universities. Allen Term courses are perfect for either catching up or springing ahead of schedule.

Allen Term may sound like something brand new, but it is actually very much a part of Alfred University's history. In fact, it was an official part of Alfred University's Academic Calendar from 1969-1978. What is different is that all the courses are being taught completely on-line*!

Why Should I Take an Allen Term Course?

  • Complete a full semester course, on-line*, within a few weeks
  • Concentrate on one course without the burden of a heavy course load
  • Advance your academic standing
  • Accelerate progress toward graduation

*Please check out the Online Learning Readiness Checklist to view the technical requirements for on-line courses, and to assess your readiness to take an on-line course.

Why Is It Called Allen Term?
Allen Term is named after Dr. Jonathan Allen, Alfred University's second president and a pioneer educator. P.A. Burdick once said that "Jonathan Allen did not live for what the world could give him, but for what he could give the world."

"Education is the healthful growth, the harmonious perfecting, of the whole being." - Jonathan Allen

"The scholar should be open-eyed to all truths, and filled with their light; he should flash new ideas along the pathway of humanity, thereby kindling new light, awakening nobler sentiments, and inspiring to higher and broader activities." - Jonathan Allen
