[This page is preserved for historical and reference purposes only. The information contained on it may no longer be current.]
Enrollment at the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley for the fall 2012 semester is about the same as fall 2011, with a total of 1,7951 students enrolled as of September 17, the official tally day, compared with 1,8192 in fall 2011.
"I'm delighted with the continuing strength of the enrollment seen at UWFox", said Dr. Martin Rudd, campus executive officer and dean at UWFox. "Despite the slight decrease in headcount that’s reported, we’ve actually grown in the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) students compared to 2011, and also in our entering freshman class. Students coming to UWFox recognize the value of the UW education they receive, appreciate the small class sizes and personal attention, and the excellent facilities."
In addition to "for-credit" enrollment, UWFox serves many students who take "non-credit" courses through its Office of Continuing Education which offers approximately 230 non-credit programs that attract nearly 1,300 participants annually. In addition, there are 20 classes of credit outreach with a total of 66 credits reaching approximately 300 students.
UWFox is one of the campuses that comprise the University of Wisconsin Colleges, and one of the 26 campuses within the University of Wisconsin System. UWFox and UW Colleges Online offer an Associate of Arts and Science degree and prepare students of all ages and backgrounds for baccalaureate and professional programs.
In addition to its associate degree program, UWFox also offers six bachelor’s degrees at its campus in Menasha, through collaborations with several of the four-year UW universities. The bachelor’s degree programs include mechanical or electrical engineering (through UW-Platteville), Organizational Administration or Leadership Development (through UW Oshkosh), American Studies (through UW-Stevens Point), and Industrial Management (through UW-Stout).
