UW-Superior Introducing Alternative Online Option for First-Year Students
The University of Wisconsin-Superior is introducing a new program for students that are looking for different ways to kick off their college education.
According to a press release from UWS, "about one out of six high school seniors are unsure about their fall college plans due to COVID-19, with as many as 35 percent of those respondents saying they are considering taking a gap year and 13 percent undecided."
The new offering is called planU and it is a one-semester program for the upcoming fall semester that will offer a "highly transferrable set of online courses taught by instructors known for their online instruction skills and personal interaction with students."
The new planU program will be offered at a special rate of $273 per credit, and with some financial add programs available, some students might have no out of pocket expenses.
Jeremy Nere, admissions director at the University of Wisconsin-Superior says, "“After the fall semester, students in the planU program have the option of continuing their studies at UW-Superior either on-campus or online, depending on their major, or they can transfer their credits to another institution. It’s a great way to get general education requirements completed at a highly regarded four-year institution in a cost-effective way."
Here are a list of classes available in the planU program:
- Introduction to Academic Writing
- Intro To Contemporary Math
- Algebra with Applications
- Elementary Statistics
- Introduction to Communication
- World Literature I
- Cultural Geography
- Introduction To Psychology
- Human Biology
- Human Biology Lab
