Parents, Help Your University Student Earn Degree Credits This Summer (And Save Money)


Summer is a great time for students to catch up or get ahead on credits toward their degree. If your student is attending a college or university other than Nicolet, they can still take credits in the Northwoods for a fraction of the cost and transfer them to their degree at another college.

Here’s what you need to know to get your student started:

  • University Transfer and Liberal Arts summer classes start June 4. Submit an application online here. Credits earned will transfer to all UW-System colleges and hundreds of others.
  • Many courses are offered online for added flexibility. Students can choose from courses such as:
    • Art Appreciation
    • Principles of Microeconomics
    • English Composition II
    • The Graphic Novel
    • History of American People to 1877
    • World History since 1500
    • Statistics
    • Ethics
    • Introduction to Psychology
    • Developmental Psychology
    • Survey of Chemistry
    • Introductory Sociology
    • Diversity Studies
    • Fundamentals of Speech
  • At Nicolet, tuition and fees for a 3-credit class is $584.40. At Wisconsin’s public universities, you’ll pay from $850 to $1550, and up to $4,000 at a private in-state university. As you can see, our cost per credit is 2-3 times lower than public institutions and up to 7 times lower than private college credits.
  • Classes are small so your student will get the attention they deserve. This may be a great time to take a class that could be challenging for your student.
