What is J-Term?
J-Term is an opportunity for students, staff and faculty to hone skills, learn new ones, or just have fun. Workshops are non-credited courses during the first two weeks in January.  Participation is voluntary, for fun, and a way to learn something new!  Workshops are taught by invited guests and members of the GSD community for the GSD community.

Is there a charge to enroll in a J-Term course?
Enrollment is free (although there may be associated costs for materials and/or transportation – check the individual course listings for details), and is only open to current GSD students, staff and faculty. A $75 drop/withdrawal fee is charged to anyone who does not withdraw by December 8, 2023 or does not attend the course in its entirety.
