Express Degree Open House Planned

Grafton High School event on Wed. January 15
By Sue Bausch

Adults thinking of completing their college degree are invited to attend an informational open house at Grafton High School on Wednesday, January 15 from 4:30pm-6:30pm in room A7.  An advisor from The University of Wisconsin-Washington County will be available to answer questions about the Washington Express program. The evening college classes will be offered at the Grafton High School location.  Questions regarding financial aid options and scholarship opportunities can also be answered.

Students in the Washington Express program (now available in Hartford, Grafton, and Beaver Dam), attend classes two evenings a week. All credits earned are transferable to any other UW System school and classes are taught by UW-Washington County instructors. Classes offered in Grafton will meet for seven weeks with one week off before the next seven week class session begins. A summer session class will also be offered, however, no classes meet in August. The program, designed for working adults, allows students to complete 15 college credits in one year. Students can supplement their face to face classes with online courses, available through UW Colleges online.

An Associate of Arts and Science Degree as well as a variety of bachelor degree completion programs are available through UW-Washington County. Tuition is the lowest in the UW System, offering thousands of dollars in savings for students.
