NWTC Introduces 8-Week Courses

More than 3,500 students graduated from Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) last year with degrees and certificates in high-demand fields such as health care, information and engineering technology.

“That’s 3,500 people leaving here with credentials, 3,500 people joining the workforce, 3,500 people earning better and higher wages to support their families,” said NWTC President Jeff Rafn. “Those are things of which to be pleased and proud.”

This fall NWTC is making a bold, strategic move that promises to help even more students master their courses, stay in college and earn a credential: It is beginning to transition nearly all course lengths from 15 weeks to eight weeks.Flexible learning is already a top priority at NWTC, so it offers online, blended, evening and weekend classes, and a few programs already offer eight-week or shorter classes.
