​Special Programs

First Year Experience

The First Year Experience Program helps students transition to college by offering classroom opportunities to maximize academic success, build positive relationships, and provide information on campus-wide resources.

The centerpiece of our First-Year Experience Program is LEC 100, a one-credit, first-year course that focuess on the skills students need for academic and career success. LEC 100 not only helps students in their transition to college, but it also counts towards their associate degree.

Service Learning

Service-learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.

In and out of the classroom, UW-Stevens Point at Marshfield faculty and staff strive to prepare students to become lifelong learners, responsible citizens, and community leaders. For example, our LEC 100 course includes a service learning component, where students participate in out-of-class activities to learn the real-world value of the classes they are taking.

Study Abroad

Study abroad programs are open to all students and community members. For a list of upcoming programs, application requirements, costs and other information you will need to participate, visit the UW-Stevens Point website.

Early College Credit Program

UW-Stevens Point at Marshfield offers many opportunities for high school students to earn college credit including Early College Credit Program, Dual Credit and Concurrent Credit options.

"With the aid of the Early College Credit Program, I was able to take college courses throughout high school, allowing me to graduate early. It not only helped me get used to the feel of college, but it also saved me money. The Early College Credit Program is a great way to get a head start on college."
