Anyone looking to enroll at Nicolet College for fall semester can make swift work of the admissions process during Quick Start, which runs weekdays in the Red Oak Center through Friday, Aug. 30. The event will run from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Fridays.
Over the past couple of years, the college has added to the number of academic programs that are available through the highly-flexible Nicolet My Way format, Nicolet dean of enrollment Erika Warning said.
“We’ve heard from many students that they need this level of flexibility in order to fit college around all of their other responsibilities,” Warning said. “Nicolet My Way gives them the opportunity to earn the college credential that they know will get them farther ahead in life.”
With flexible open labs and online classes, students decide when they complete their coursework.
“That’s the beauty of Nicolet My Way,” Warning said. “Students can make college as traditional or as flexible as they want. Some students like coming to class on specific days at specific times and being around others in their academic program, and they can do exactly that in Nicolet My Way programs.”
At Quick Start students will be able to complete many, if not all, of the steps necessary to enroll at Nicolet. These include:
• Meet with an admissions representative to discuss career options and the various academic paths available to train for a career.
• Talk with an academic advisor to register for classes and set up a class schedule that fits in with other responsibilities.
• Complete the admission application.
• Learn about financial aid and start the financial aid application process.
• Learn about payment plans the college has available.
Fall semester classes start Wednesday, Sept. 4.
Individuals looking to enroll should also bring their high school or college transcripts, if available. Those needing help getting their transcripts before the event are encouraged to contact the Nicolet Welcome Center at 715-365-4493 for assistance.
Nicolet staff will also be on hand at Quick Start to help students retrieve transcripts electronically. There’s often a fee to do this, so a credit or debit card will be needed.
Nicolet academic programs currently offered in the flexible Nicolet My Way format include welding, information technology, administrative professional, accounting, and business management. More programs are expected to adopt the format in the future.
The college currently offers more than 60 associate degrees, diplomas, certificates, and apprenticeships. Many of these also feature online classes that offer a degree of flexibility in a traditional semester structure.
The Nicolet Campus is one mile south of Rhinelander just off of Hwy. G.
