If you’re interested in finding out how you can start working toward a bachelor’s degree, or how you can apply your previous college experience toward earning that elusive bachelor’s degree that you may have “put off” for awhile, then the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley’s “Return to Learn” session on Tuesday, December 11, could be just what you’re looking for. UWFox is hosting the “Return to Learn” session in the campus’ Emeritus Room from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Members of the UWFox Student Services staff and representatives from several other UW campuses, including UW-Oshkosh, UW-Green Bay, UW-Platteville, and UW-Stevens Point will be offering information about various educational opportunities and degree programs in this “Open House” format.

UWFox recently began offering an “Accelerated Learning Program,” designed with working adults in mind. Other available UWFox programs are the Associate of Arts and Science degree, Guaranteed Transfer Program, and Alternative Careers in Teaching.

UWFox also offers several bachelor’s degrees through collaborative programs with several four-year UW campuses, with all classes taking place at the Menasha campus. For example, a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Administration is offered collaboratively through UW-Oshkosh while UW-Platteville offers collaborative bachelor’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. UW-Stevens Point offers a collaborative bachelor’s degree in American Studies.

Tammy Brunette Tammy Brunette, Adult Student Coordinator at UWFox, explained why this “Return to Learn” session can be so helpful to individuals who have recently graduated from high school, as well as adult learners who want to start, or return to, college. “Prospective students can come in and gather information during the session and leave when they have the information they need,” she said. “A college degree is one of the best financial investments that a person can make,” she said.”

Brunette emphasized that starting, or returning to, college does not require a student to automatically have a career path or academic major in mind. “For those folks who are unsure of the type of career, or degree, that they’d like to pursue, we’ll have information available on career assessments. And, for those who attend our session and are undecided about a career or academic major, at a separate appointment we’ll have a career advisor available to meet at no expense.”
