The University of Wisconsin-Fond du Lac announces special walk-in office hours for prospective returning adult students, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., on Tuesdays in the Student Affairs Office, 400 University Dr.
Tera Annoye, UW-Fond du Lac’s returning adult specialist, is available to meet with prospective adult students during this time and discuss the steps necessary to apply to UW-Fond du Lac. She can also answer questions that go along with returning to school after being away for either a short period of time or many years.
Approximately thirty percent of UW-Fond du Lac students are returning adults, those over the age of 22. UW-Fond du Lac offers a dedicated returning adult advisor; day and evening degree programs; traditional, accelerated and blended course formats; as well as the lowest tuition in the UW System.
“Returning to school is a big step and can make people uneasy,” said Annoye. “Whether someone is returning after a long break after high school or returning to college after taking a break due to changes in a job or family situation, UW-Fond du Lac has options for students to achieve their goal of earning a degree.”
UW-Fond du Lac awards the Associate of Arts and Science Degree and also several bachelor’s degree completion programs. A new bachelor’s degree in electrical or mechanical engineering from UW-Platteville is also now available.
“Students earn this engineering degree completely at the UW-Fond du Lac campus,” said Annoye. “There is no need to ever go to the UW-Platteville campus.”
Another new educational option at UW-Fond du Lac is a regional bachelor’s degree in special education which will be available in fall 2012. In collaboration with UW-Oshkosh, the special education degree will be cross categorical and will offer licensure for teaching special education in grades K-12.
