Culinary Arts classes to start in Carter; Quick Start Dec. 13

Nov. 30, 2016

With Nicolet starting Culinary Arts classes in Carter this January, the college and the Forest County Potawatomi will hold a Culinary Arts Quick Start event Tuesday, Dec. 13, for students to complete all steps of the enrollment process.

The event will run from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Potawatomi Carter Casino Hotel in Carter.

At the Quick Start students will learn about careers in the field, complete the Nicolet admissions application, register for classes, complete required assessments, and learn how to apply for financial aid and scholarships.

“The Quick Start event is designed for people to complete everything they need to enroll at one time and at one location,” said Nicolet Director of Enrollment Erika Warning. “This is a great opportunity for anyone in Forest County to start on a college credential in the culinary arts and do so with classes that are close to home.”

An added benefit of attending the Quick Start is that everyone enrolling will have to the opportunity to save more than $60 in fees typically associated with the enrollment process, she added. Those intending to enroll at the event will need bring their high school or GED/HSED transcripts and any college transcripts in a sealed envelope.

Spring Semester classes begin Wednesday, Jan. 18.

The classes in Carter will allow students to begin working on their Nicolet Culinary Arts credential. Many start by earning a short-term certificate through Nicolet and use that credential to start working in the field. They also continue taking classes on the Nicolet campus to earn more advanced credentials, culminating in the two-year Culinary Arts associate degree.

“This way they get both experience in the field and the training they need for a successful career in the culinary arts,” Warning explained, adding that the classes are open to everyone.

Nicolet also has credit transfer agreements with four-year campuses for students interested in earning a bachelor’s degree. These include a new agreement with the University of Wisconsin – Stout where students can earn their bachelor’s degree in Hotel, Restaurant & Tourism Management without leaving the Northwoods through a combination of Nicolet classes and online classes offered through UW-Stout.
