The winterim session at Mid-State Technical College is fast approaching.

The winter semester offers increased opportunities for a variety of needs, from quick, transferable classes to certificates students can get a jump start on before the spring semester.

The college has also increased access to its offerings with a new shuttle service between campuses for students for those with transportation barriers or just looking to save money and valuable study time.

Most of Mid-State’s 47 fast-paced winterim classes start on January 3 and include transfer options to UW System schools and online options. Students can earn up to four credits in just three weeks, making the option a popular way for university students returning home for the break to pick up classes at an affordable cost.

The college also now offers Career Accelerator certificates, six of which can be started this winterim. Each is a short-term “sprint” to develop targeted, real-world competency for career advancement. Listed below are the certificates available to start this winterim:

  • Agriculture Diesel Engine Systems and Equipment
  • Competitive Sales
  • Healthcare Foundations
  • Human Resources Foundations
  • Small Business Entrepreneurship
  • Team Leadership

The 15-passenger Mid-State shuttle is available through a partnership with Wisconsin Automotive & Truck Education Association (WATEA) and funded through the State of Wisconsin Workforce Innovation Grant. It is free for any Mid-State student and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
