Find out if the UW Flexible Option is right for you
Is the online, competency-based Flexible Option a good fit for your life? Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easy way to find out?
In fact, there is. We call it the Flex Fit, and you can take it right now.
In about 30 minutes, this simple online assessment will measure:
- Key personality traits such as your levels of motivation, procrastination, willingness to ask for help, and preferred learning styles.
- External lifestyle factors such as the amount of time each week you have to study, the level of support you have from employers and family, whether or not you have a dedicated study space, and other factors regarding your general health and finances.
- Technical skills including your competency and comfort with computers and Internet use, your on-screen reading skills, and typing skills.
We recommend that you complete a Flex Fit self-evaluation before applying for admission to a participating UW System campus that is offering a Flexible Option program. There is no cost for taking the Flex Fit, and no obligation.
It’s a test you can’t fail
The Flex Fit isn’t graded. It has no bearing on whether or not you can enroll. The Flex Fit is simply a tool to help you understand your own strengths and opportunities for growth as you consider this innovative education option. Flex Fit will also foster a dialog between you and an enrollment adviser about what we can do to help you be successful.
Are you ready to assess your readiness for this self-paced, online education option? Take the Flex Fit now. Once you have completed your assessment, we encourage you to call a friendly enrollment adviser to discuss your results and the next best steps for you.
