Program Information Class Descriptions What is College for Kids? College for Kids (CFK) is a hands-on enrichment program for children in grades K5-8 who have high academic potential, motivation, a talent, or an interest in computers, math, science, languages, creative arts and humanities. Now in its 32nd year, the program consists of one and two-week classes taught by UW system faculty or highly qualified and experienced instructors. All programs at UW–Milwaukee provide an "academic edge." Class size is limited to 16 students. Kindergartners must be five years old by June 10 and must have prior five-days-a-week school experience.

When are Classes?

How Do I Register?

Classes are Mon.-Fri., June 18-Aug. 10 and are held on the UWM campus, unless otherwise noted. Specific class dates/times are included in course descriptions located on pages 5-22.

Hassle free registration. No waiting in long lines. Registration opens each year on Jan. 15. Call, fax in your registration, or go online to sce-kids.uwm.edu. (Mailed registrations add several days to the registration process and lessen the likelihood of availability in your desired class.)

Registration Policy Once your child is registered there are no refunds or transfers. Refunds are made only for classes cancelled by CFK.

Enroll More. Pay Less.

Before and After Care

CFK offers summer discounts. The more you enroll, the less you pay.

Students enrolled in back-to-back classes or before and after care will be chaperoned to their next destination. No extended supervision (longer than the 30 minutes between consecutive class times) is available between 9am-4pm for those not enrolled in class during any part of the day. Please have your child bring a copy of this schedule to class each day so we can make sure they get to the correct class.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION SKIP AHEAD!

Wristbands

Advanced check in: June 4-15, 9am-4pm Avoid the long lines and get acquainted with campus early by stopping in our office. At time of print our new office location had not been secured. Please call 227-3360 (before June 1) or 229-6364 (after June 1) to request exact location.

Wristbands are given out on the first day of a session and are to be worn each day of the program. If your child is enrolled in more than one session, he/she can receive a new band at the beginning of each session. Please bring the old wristband back in order to get a new one. It is your responsibility to make sure your child wears the wristband each day. This is the way we identify our students. The colors tell the staff what privileges the child has, such as leaving campus unattended or not being included in pictures. It also verifies that your child is in our program. Your child will not be allowed to participate in class unless he/she has the wristband on.

Check In On your child’s first day, check in at the Union Terrace Room, where you will make sure you’ve filled out all the proper paperwork. You will then receive your CFK/CFT drawstring backpack and wristband. (Please note: you need to do this for your first class only. The lines may be long, so please arrive 30 minutes early.)

Pick Up – Drop Off You may pick up or drop off at the Union Circle, 2200 E. Kenwood Blvd., or inside the Union in the Terrace Room (SW corner on the ground floor). The instructors will bring their students to the Union Terrace at the end of class time. You must pick your child up within 15 minutes of the end of class (i.e. if class ends at 11 am, pick up must be no later than 11:15am). Students will be allowed to wait for their ride either inside at the Union Terrace or outside at the drive-up. (Please make sure your child knows where they are meeting you.) You will be charged $7 for each 15 minutes you are late. (i.e. 4:16-4:31 would be $7, 4:32-4:47 would be $14 and so on). If your child is not picked up within one hour CFK/CFT will contact the UWM police. Your child will not be allowed to return to classes until the fee has been paid.

Meals

Children with Special Concerns If your child has special needs or requires medication during camp please contact us before enrolling. This will ensure that we can address all of your concerns.

Mail List Requests To update your name and address, remove your name from our mailing list, or eliminate duplicate mailings, call 414-227-3186. Please refer to your name and address exactly as it appears on the mailing label. Or, fill out the form on our website at sce-kids.uwm.edu.

Other Important Information

Lunch and snacks are not included. Feel free to send food along with your child. Only students with orange wristbands can purchase food on campus.

Do not leave your car unattended in the Union Circle, you will be ticketed by campus police and there is nothing CFK/CFT can do about it! A parking ramp is available just to the east of the Union Circle.

Drawstring Backpacks!

If students are enrolled in back-to-back classes they will be supervised in the Union Terrace room, unless you have given them permission to be unattended.

All participants will receive a FREE CFK drawstring backpack! Backpacks are handed out on the first day when you drop off your child.

Scholarships What Not To Bring Please do not bring games, toys, trading cards, electronic devices and other similar materials to classes unless the instructor has requested you to do so. CFK is not responsible for lost, broken or missing items.

Disciplinary Information Disruptive students are taken to the CFK office and their parents are notified. Continued disruption results in removal from the program.

Only students who have a signed parental consent form indicating that they can leave unattended will be able to leave without an adult. If your child is to go home on their own, make sure you sign that form. These students will be given “orange” wristbands to wear throughout the program.

Needs-Based: To be eligible for a limited number of needs-based scholarships, the student must be eligible for free or reduced lunch program. Needs-Based recipients will be notified by phone the 1st week of May. DPI Pre-College Scholarship Program: Applicants must be going into 6th grade or above, have a 2.5 grade point average in core courses and be eligible for free or reduced lunch program. If you qualify for either of these scholarships, please call for an application, contact your school or download forms at www.scekids.uwm.edu. Due to the high number of requests, only people receiving scholarships are notified.

I Still Have Questions! To learn more about CFK programs, call 414-227-3360 or visit sce-kids.uwm.edu.
