Posted June 16, 2011

Anyone interested in upgrading their job skills, training for a new career, or starting on a bachelor’s degree is encouraged to enroll in Fall Semester classes at Nicolet College.

“With the job market being what it is, having the right set of skills is critical for landing a job, keeping a job, and moving up in a job,” said Nicolet College President Elizabeth Burmaster. “Every academic program at Nicolet is focused on providing students with those exact skills.”

Nicolet CollegeIn recent years the college has also concentrated on creating more options for students who need to juggle family and job responsibilities. “That increased level of flexibility, whether it’s through online, evening or weekend classes, has opened the door to a college education for many students,” Burmaster added.

Fall Semester classes start Wednesday, Aug. 24.

The college has also launched a new online application form that’s designed to make it cheaper and easier for students to apply for admission, said Susan Kordula, director of Admissions and PK-16 Pathways.

“By applying online, students will save the $10 processing fee that comes with submitting the paper application,” Kordula explained.

Students will also be able to complete the online application from any computer with an internet connection, eliminating the need to travel to the Rhinelander campus to complete this step of the enrollment process.
