UW looks at 2 options for flexible degree program

MILWAUKEE -

The University of Wisconsin System is looking at two options for working adults hoping to finish college degrees through its new Flexible Option program.

The first is an all-you-can-learn in a three-month term for $2,250. It would include access to financial aid, advising, tutoring and other support services.

The other option would be an assessment to earn college credits. It would not include financial aid or student services. The price for that has not yet been set.

The Flexible Option program allows students to earn credit by demonstrating knowledge on tests. That knowledge may come from on-the-job training, military experience or coursework.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported students could take two to four classes per term in the all-you-can-learn option, depending on how quickly they work and pass assessments.
