The Interim Program is an innovative and intensive educational experience with courses offered primarily during the three-week period (“Interim”) between the spring semester and the first term of summer school. Interim Program courses are usually creative and experimental. They range from travel to Jamaica to explore the evolution of reggae music to intensive seminars in psychology, experiential courses in business, and independent projects designed by individual students. Each Interim, 80–100 courses are offered, including some regular semester courses and many courses designed especially for the Interim term. Virtually all of the University’s schools and colleges participate in the program, which is coordinated through the Office for Academic Affairs.
Registration for Interim Program courses is part of the registration procedure for the summer and fall terms. Students usually register for a maximum of 3 semester credit hours. Students registering for more than 3 credit hours begin or continue their work outside the traditional three-week Interim period. Questions about transfer credit for Interim courses should be directed to the Office of the University Registrar at (205) 348-2020. For an up-to-date listing of current Interim courses and prerequisites, students can visit the Interim Web site at interim.ua.edu.
