Special Programs

At UW-Sheboygan, we offer a number of special academic programs to support and supplement our curriculum and co-curricular offerings:

8th Grade Visits

The UW-Sheboygan campus has made a concerted effort to host groups of middle school students for the purpose of college and career exploration since at least 2002. Upon their arrival, Student Affairs staff will rotate the students through career and education-related activities and provide a tour of the campus.

First Year Experience

The First Year Experience Program helps students transition to college by offering classroom opportunities to maximize academic success, build positive relationships, and provide information on campus-wide resources.

The centerpiece of our First-Year Experience Program is LEC 100, a one-credit, first-year course that focuses on the skills students need for academic and career success. LEC 100 not only helps students in their transition to college, but it also counts towards their associate degree.  

High School Student Program

UW-Sheboygan offers many opportunities for high school students to earn college credit including Youth Options, Dual Credit and Concurrent Credit options.

Pre-College Programming

Pre-College programming is designed to help area youth in their college preparation. UW-Sheboygan offers a number of different opportunities:

Service Learning

Service-learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

In and out of the classroom, UW Sheboygan faculty and staff strive to prepare students to become lifelong learners, responsible citizens, and community leaders. For example, our LEC 100 course includes a service learning component, where students participate in out-of-class activities to learn the real-world value of the classes they are taking. 

Study Abroad

Study abroad programs are open to all students and community members. For a list of upcoming programs, application requirements, costs and other information you will need to participate, visit the UW Colleges Study Abroad website.
