MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Prospective college students can start signing up for the University of Wisconsin System's new flexible degree program.

Admissions to the program open Monday. UW officials are planning an afternoon news conference to promote the launch.

The initiative allows students to earn college credit by demonstrating knowledge gleaned from the workplace, military experience or coursework on tests. The program is designed to help working adults earn degrees faster.

The program will begin at UW-Milwaukee and the UW System's 13 two-year schools in January. UW-Milwaukee is offering the option for its nursing program, biomedical diagnostic imaging program, and IT program. The two-year schools are offering it for a number of associate degree programs, including biology, chemistry, computer science and engineering.

Other campuses plan to offer flex options later next year.
