The Alternative Careers in Teaching program (act!) is an individually tailored, alternative pathway to initial Wisconsin licensure as a secondary (grades 6-12) mathematics or science teacher or as a technology education teacher (grades K-12). The program is tailored to adult career-changers looking for an alternative path to licensure that is flexible, fast and convenient.


  • A minimum of a Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution. Individuals best suited for the act! program have an undergraduate degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) related field.

  • Experience working in a math or science field (including experience while in the program)


The act! program is a cooperative program between the University of Wisconsin Colleges and the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh structured to meet the needs of the adult learner.
