Frequently Asked Questions

What is Intersession at Acadia?
Starting in May and running through July, Acadia University offers a selection of accelerated courses - 3 and 6 weeks in duration. The classes normally run Monday to Friday in 3 hour timeslots starting at 9 AM and 1 PM. These courses have the same academic standing as those offered in regular semesters. Intersession can be used interchangeably with Spring and Summer at Acadia.

When does Intersession begin?
The first term begins in May. Each intersession term is 3 weeks

Why do people take Intersession courses?
Acadia offers Spring and Summer courses because they provide valuable options for our students. Students choose these courses to reduce Fall/Winter course load, pick up a missing required course, catch up on courses after switching majors, and for a variety of other reasons.

How are Intersession courses different?
Although the way a course is taught and its syllabus will vary by instructor, an intersession course will be very similar in content to the same course offered in fall or winter. The courses will offer different pacing, but the same quality instruction and curriculum.

How do I register for a course?
Registration is easy. If you are a current Acadia University student you can register through Acadia Central. If you are a new student or haven’t taken a course within the last 12 months, please complete Acadia's application form.

How many courses can I take during Intersession?
A maximum of nine hours (9h) may be taken in each part of intersession, except in science courses with laboratories and graduate courses where the maximum is six hours (6h). Thus, a maximum of eighteen hours (18h) may be taken between the winter term and the subsequent fall term.

Can I use an Acadia Intersession course towards my degree at another school?
In order to transfer a credit to your home university, you will have to fill out a letter of permission request form at your home university’s registrar’s office. Once approved, your letter of permission is your guarantee that your university will count your Acadia University course towards your degree. A copy of your Letter of Permission must be sent to Acadia to ensure that your mark is returned to your home institution.

The course indicates a prerequisite is required. Do you require my transcript?
Transcripts are required as proof of a prerequisite. Special permission may be granted by the instructor.

I can’t pay right now but I want to ensure I have a seat. What can I do?
You can put a course in your backpack but payment is required by the Registration Deadline. Courses with insufficient paid registrations will be cancelled. Please be sure to meet this deadline to avoid disappointment.

Can I take courses on a student loan?
You should discuss this with both your provincial student loans office and Acadia University’s Student Accounts Office.

Can I live on campus during Intersession?
To make arrangements for accommodations on campus during Intersession please contact Residence Life.

Will I receive a refund if I withdraw?
Beginning on the first day of your campus (face to face) course, you will be charged 10% of the registration fee per lecture day for three credit-hour courses. A lecture day is 3 scheduled hours of classes.

How do I get my textbooks?
We suggest ordering your books early for intersession courses. If a professor has placed an order with the bookstore, you can order online at www.acadia.bkstr.com . Choose your term and course and then it will show the books you need. DO NOT SEARCH BY TITLE ETC. Books may be in stock or may be back ordered but you can still order in that case and you order will be filled when the books arrive. You  may on occasion see the books but it says special order. This happens when the course is quite far away or we run out of stock. If you are within 3 weeks of the course and see this contact us. If not, just check back. For questions about this, contact Cathy Morine-Collins at 0921txt@follett.com or 902 585 1483.
