Open house highlights degree options

Adults thinking about completing or starting a UW associate or bachelor's degree are invited to the Start Ahead/Start Here open house Tuesday, Dec. 3, from 5-6:30 p.m. in Meggers 159 at UW-Barron County.
"One in five UW-Barron County students are returning to the classroom to start a new career, advance at work, or complete a personal goal," said Deb Neuheisel, adult student initiatives coordinator. "They chose UW-Barron County because it is close to home, offers quality instruction and is the lowest cost education in the UW System."
Open house guests may tour the campus, hear about associate degree FastTrack courses designed for working adults and hear about several options for earning a 4-year UW degree.
One new option is the UW-Barron County Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree with courses on the UW-Barron County campus and with partner institutions.
Open house participants will be offered a free Myers Briggs Type Indicator career assessment and follow up and a voucher toward ReFresh workshops to sharpen mathematics and English skills.
FastTrack associate degree classes make it possible to attend class one night a week and complete an associate degree. These courses were especially designed for students who have work and family responsibilities. Courses are taught in a blended format, combining in-class and online instruction.
Some courses are accelerated and start mid-term. This allows student to enroll in selected courses throughout the year. Courses are both general education and business, including accounting, economics, information systems, and general business classes.
Students who want to complete a bachelor's degree have many options. Students can also complete several majors with UW partner universities using various distance education forms of instruction.
To register for the Start Ahead/Start Here open house call 715-234-8024 or email "uwbcinfo@uwc.edu."
For more information on FastTrack or other options for adults who want to launch their college education, call Neuheisel at 715-234-8176, Ext. 5445.
