Wisconsin’s public university system has launched “Flex Option” degrees, which replace standard credits with “competency-based education.”

A college education doesn’t come easy this days, neither does it come cheap. With state universities averaging $8,893 for annual fees and a whopping $30,090 for private universities (according to College Board reports), many people are thinking twice before attending. Now, the University of Wisconsin is introducing an alternative education option that would only cost $2,250 for three month’s of “all you can study” access. UW’s Flex Option will be the open buffet to other universities’ set menu.
