Summer is a special time in Wisconsin. It's an opportunity after a long, cold winter to get out, do something fun and experience everything the state has to offer. Whether you want to check out local fairs and festivals, spend a week at the lake, or do anything in between, taking a course through UW Colleges is the perfect way to embrace summer.
Through UW Colleges summer sessions you have the opportunity to take hundreds of courses offered at a local campus or through UW Colleges Online. Here are five reasons summer courses are a great way to make the most of the season:
1. Unbeatable, unique experiences
UW Colleges summer courses offer experiences you won't find anywhere else and provide options for every interest. Whether you're learning about the state's natural resources at the Apostle Islands or taking a trip to Washington D.C. to get an up close look at national politics, our courses offer opportunities you won't find anywhere else. If you're looking for a way to make your summer memorable, look no further.
2. Credits transfer to every UW school
Our campuses are part of the UW system, which means credits from our hundreds of courses transfer seamlessly between two-year and four-year campuses. So if you're near one of our local campuses, or you want to take an online class, the credits you earn will transfer to whatever UW institution you attend.
3. Get ahead or stay on track for your degree
Summer session courses are a great way to lighten your fall or spring course loads and can help you get to graduation earlier. Earlier graduation means using our Guaranteed Transfer Program to continue earning your degree or getting into the workforce and pursuing the career of your dreams. Whichever you choose, summer courses are a good investment.
4. Dive into a class that interests you
During a fall or spring semester, it's likely you have multiple classes going on at once. That means studying for exams, participating in group projects, writing essays and doing course readings for a number of topics. A UW Colleges summer course gives you an opportunity to commit to a single class and get the most out of your experience.
5. Take a class you missed
If you're having trouble getting into a class for fall or missed one during the spring semester, our summer courses are a perfect opportunity to pick up the class you can't seem to fit into your schedule. No matter what subject you're interested in, our hundreds of summer courses on campus or online give you a chance to catch up on the classes you've missed.
