Credit Outreach and Extended Day
Credit Outreach funds are available to assist schools and colleges to develop and sustain degree and credit-bearing programs designed to serve working adults and nontraditional students.
Below you will find the call for proposals for Credit Outreach funding for the 2013-2014 Academic Year. A more complete description of the funding mechanisms are also found in these documents.
The goals, purpose, and intended audiences of Credit Outreach funding are outlined in UW System policy ACIS 5.4: Programming for the Non-Traditional Market in the University of Wisconsin System.
Those goals include:
- Providing credit courses for adults unable to reach the campus sites during the typical teaching day
- Providing programs designed to equip students to compete in an increasingly technological economy
- Providing opportunities for working adults to earn degrees and/or credit-bearing certificates that will enhance their earning power, therefore improving the Wisconsin economy
- Developing programs of an innovative or experimental nature
- Providing service to adult learners without diluting the support for the traditional campus based clientele
Call for Proposals
How to submit your proposal
Directions for submitting each of the forms above is contained in the form. If you have any questions please contact Katy Duren at 263-5114.
Funding proposals are being solicited at this time for the full FY14 academic year (summer 2013, fall 2013 and spring 2014). Schools and colleges should make their requests for funding for the entire 2013-2014 academic year—including summer 2013—by October 12, 2012.
October 12, 2012: Deadline for returning completed funding proposals to the Division of Continuing Studies. You should establish your own internal deadlines to insure that proposals will be completed, reviewed, and prioritized by you before forwarding them to DCS.
Late December/Early January 2013: Funding allocation decisions for the 2013-2014 academic year will be made and communicated to the schools and colleges.
We recognize that some of the specific courses identified in this planning process may change between now and the time the courses are offered. Because we are required to track individual courses supported by these funds, if you change course offerings, you need to notify the Division of Continuing Studies of those changes. Each semester you will be asked to verify which courses are being supported with these funds. All courses supported by these funds must meet the stated criteria for funding, and changes in course offerings may not be approved if the proposed changes result in courses not meeting the funding criteria.
If you have questions or concerns about the funding process, please contact Katy Duren at email@example.com or call 608-263-5114.
