UW Flex: Competency Based Degrees

The University of Wisconsin will be launching a new flexible option this fall which will offer competency based degree programs. Competency based degrees have a great potential to reduce costs for students by allowing them to demonstrate mastery and understanding for learning they have gained in other places rather than having to take a course for a topic they already understand well. The UW team has created an animated video which gives a great overview of how competency based programs can work.
