Veterans FAQ Page
What would a classroom at UW-Superior comprise of?
At UWS, there is a high percentage of non-traditional students in the classroom along with traditional aged students, which means that you are likely to be sitting next to someone who may have similar life experience as you. In addition, we have over 250 veteran students attending UW-Superior.
Do I have to be on campus to take classes?
No, our distance learning department offers a number of courses and four majors that can be taken online. Additional majors are in the process of being added. Contact the Distance Learning Office
(firstname.lastname@example.org or 715-394-8487) to see what is available to be taken anywhere, anytime, online.
I'm interested in becoming a teacher, what additional resources are available?
Troops to Teachers (TTT) continues to pursue the goal of helping to relieve teacher shortages, especially in math, science, special education and other high needs subject areas, and to assist military personnel in making successful transitions to second careers in teaching. Federal legislation provides TTT enrollees pursuing requirements for teaching certification, who agree to teach in high need school districts, a stipend of up to $5,000 to offset the cost of teacher training programs. Those willing to teach in schools with a high percentage of students from low income families may receive a $10,000 bonus. Program participants cannot receive more than a total of $10,000 from TTT. Check out Wisconsin's Troops to Teachers Benefits. Contact Lynn Karna, Veterans' Benefits Coordinator to see if you are eligible for these additional benefits.
