University of Wisconsin – Extension and Wisconsin Colleges Model
The UW Flexible Option degree program is a unique partnership between the University of Wisconsin Colleges (freshman/sophomore colleges) and the University of Wisconsin--Extension. The option is designed specifically to give working adults a self-paced, competency-based option to complete their degrees.
Since 2014, school officials have been exploring how to translate the skills students develop through the competency-based program into a more robust record than the traditional transcript. Those conversations have grown into a pilot competency record called the “SmartScript.” The record was developed in cooperation with University of Maryland University College.
