Have you wondered about how you can take that “first” step working toward earning a bachelor’s degree? Or, how you can apply your previous college experience toward earning that elusive bachelor’s degree when you may have postponed it for awhile? The “Open House” at the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley, being held from 3:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on July 10 in the Student Services office could hold the answers to your questions.
According to Tammy Brunette, Adult Student Services Coordinator at UWFox, “Pre-registration is not necessary. We want interested individuals to drop by and meet with us when it’s convenient for them to do so during the late afternoon and early evening on July 10, and talk to an advisor, if they’d like to do that. Folks who come to the Open House don’t have to stay for the entire three hours.”
UWFox offers bachelor’s degrees through collaborations with various baccalaureate campuses throughout the UW System. This includes a Bachelor’s of Liberal Studies Degree in Organizational Administration through UW-Oshkosh, Bachelor’s of Science Degrees in both Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering through UW-Platteville and a Bachelor’s Degree in American Studies through UW-Stevens Point. All classes for these degree programs are held at the UWFox campus in Menasha. UWFox also offers UW-Stout's Bachelor's Degree in Industrial Management.
Information about all of the collaborative degree programs, as well as the new Accelerated Learning Program (ALP), the Alternative Careers in Teaching (act!) program, and the Associate of Arts and Science degree will be made available for those attending the Open House.
Brunette explains that, “This is a great opportunity for anyone over the age of 21 to meet first hand with UWFox advisors. Questions about our collaborative bachelor’s degree programs can be answered. Transfer students can learn how they can complete their general education requirement before transferring to a four-year institution. Individuals who already have a bachelor’s degree and work experience can pursue a teacher’s licensure in math or science through the act! program. This is a great opportunity to discover all that we have to offer here at UWFox,” Brunette said.
