Enrollment up 2% at UW-Sheboygan
Campus sets new enrollment record
The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan has enrolled a record 867 students for the fall 2010 semester, an increase of 2 percent over the fall 2009 semester, which previously had set the record for the highest enrollment ever at the campus. In 2009, the campus saw a 12 percent increase in enrollment over 2008.
Dr. Al Hardersen, UW-Sheboygan campus executive officer and dean, credited low tuition and easy access for the campus’ steady growth.
“These days it seems that everyone is talking about how to save money on college and how to avoid student debt,” Hardersen said. “At UW-Sheboygan, tuition has been frozen since 2006 at $4,268 per year, the lowest in the UW System. We offer an incredible bargain for the quality.
“Our students get a genuine University of Wisconsin education,” Hardersen added. “Class sizes are small, the professors are focused on teaching undergraduates, and credits are guaranteed to transfer to any campus in the UW System.”
UW-Sheboygan is one of the 13 UW College campuses and is Sheboygan County’s local UW System institution.
The University of Wisconsin Colleges is comprised of 13 campuses and UW Colleges Online that offer an Associate of Arts and Sciences degree and prepare students of all ages and backgrounds for baccalaureate and professional programs.
