It probably wasn’t the summer they planned, but more than 40 high school students are making the most of their summer break to earn college credit through UW-Green Bay’s Summer Scholars Program.
Summer Scholars provides students the opportunity to earn three UW-Green Bay credits during a four-week, online course offered July 13 through August 9. Enrollment is still open. Courses are being offered in the high-interest areas of computer science, geoscience and sociology through UW-Green Bay’s Continuing Education and Community Engagement division.
The program is entirely online. The three classes to choose from are Introduction to Computing & Internet Technologies; Natural Hazards, and Contemporary Social Problems. The cost is $600 per course—a 55% savings on tuition and fees.
The summer program saves high school students and 2020 high school graduates hundreds of dollars in tuition through the reduced-tuition structure. Credits earned can be transferred to all UW System schools and most private or out-of-state schools. The program allows students the opportunity to get a head start on their college degree and distinguish themselves on future college applications.
The Summer Scholars Program exemplifies UW-Green Bay’s commitment to serving high school students and creating impactful pathways towards higher education and beyond.
Registration for the Summer Scholars Program continues through July 3, 2020. For more information, please visit www.uwgb.edu/k12relations/summer-scholars-program/overview.
