What is Alternative Winter Break?

An Alternative Winter Break has the same structure as our Alternative Spring Breaks. This experience happens in the winter during the university's December/January break. It will be considered on a year-by-year basis according to the academic calendar for its length and dates. Keep an eye on the events section of the homepage for updates.

Winter Breaks are not scheduled for the 2021-22 year.  Check out other upcoming breaks we offer!


Current estimates for domestic driving breaks are $250-300 and $450-1200 for flying breaks (including international) for the week which includes all of your meals, housing, and transportation. Costs may go down as final budgets are approved for each break.  All breakers participate in fundraising to help reduce the cost of the break.  The cost does not include travel days food, souvenirs, and community exploration day expenses.


You can sign up first-come-first-served online.  Links will be posted when the registration is live.  There will be an announcement available on the homepage once we have confirmed community partners each fall!  Registration typically begins late September/early October.
