Advising & Support
From the first-time you look at our program to the day you graduate, our advisors will be with you.
Where to start…
- Select a program— LLCE advisors will talk through your needs, learning style and the job market to help you make an informed decision and to help guide you into the most appropriate program based on your interests and the market’s needs.
- Transfer credits—Transfer credits are available to students who have taken a few courses at another institution, completed an associate’s degree or started a four-year degree at the University of Wisconsin or other college/university.
- Set a timeline— Because this program is built for real life, you choose how many classes you want to take at a time. Or, if you have a specific goal, the LLCE advisors can help you set a timeline to meet that goal. Some students want to graduate with their son or daughter. Others need to finish in a short time frame. You even have the options to take a break in the middle of the program. Your timeline is your own.
- Anticipate costs—Many adult students live on a tight budget. LLCE advisors can help you figure out what going back to school will cost and your payment options and whether you qualify for grants, scholarships, loans or other financial aid. Don’t forget to ask your employer if they offer tuition reimbursement options.
Our desire to help you succeed comes from personal experience—many of our staff members graduated from Lifelong Learning and Community Engagement programs.
