MILWAUKEE (AP) - The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee will be the first school in the UW System to offer a so-called flexible degree, in which students will be able to earn college credit for knowledge already gained through work or life experience.
UW System officials outlined the program over the summer. On Wednesday they provided details about how the courses would work and which programs would be included.
UW-Milwaukee will begin offering degree programs this fall in nursing, diagnostic imaging and information science, as well as a certificate program in communications.
The 13 two-year UW colleges will also provide courses for general education and liberal arts.
The target audience includes nontraditional students such as military veterans and those who left school with some college credits.
