Why UW-Superior

Lighten your Fall or Spring Semester schedule

Get ahead in your studies

Free up time during the busy academic year
You'll have time for a job, internship or extracurricular activity.

Stop losing money
You may be losing more than $45,000 per year when you don't finish your degree in four years.
