UWRF Pathways Program

The UWRF Pathways Program is designed to support students for whom English is not their first language during their first year at UWRF. The Pathways Program assists students as they adjust to university academic expectations while honoring students' multilingual skills. In this one-year program, students take three general education courses and two English as a Second Language (ESL) courses each semester. The credits earned in ESL support courses count toward students' cumulative GPAs but not toward their degrees.
