CLEVELAND, WI – Lakeshore Technical College is hosting a “Level Up with Lakeshore” open house at its Cleveland campus Wednesday, August 10. The public is welcome to attend and tour the campus anytime 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
College representatives will be available to discuss career options, financial aid, student resources, credit for prior learning, and application steps. Deans and faculty members will also be available to answer questions about new and continuing programs and courses.
New programs for fall include general studies transfer associate of arts and associate of science degrees, which cover the first two years toward a bachelor’s degree, as well as information technology-cybersecurity specialist.
Fall courses will be offered in a variety of learning formats including in person, online, blended, and competency-based.
The competency-based format offers increased flexibility and the ability to work at a student’s own pace. Competency-based education involves hands-on, in-person learning and online coursework. Hands-on learning can take place over a variety of days and times, making it easier for students to fit into their schedules. Academic progress is measured by assessing mastery of required skills or competencies at any time during the term, providing students with more control over how quickly they complete a program.
Programs moving to a competency-based education learning format in fall include auto collision repair and refinish technician, automotive refinisher, medical coder, and welding-industrial.
Lakeshore’s esports arena will be available for open play. The college is a member of the National Association of Collegiate Esports and its Snow Leopards team compete in the National Esports Collegiate Conference.
Registration is requested but not required.
