Why Our Students Succeed

Say you're thinking about going to college, but you want to make sure you find one that’s right for you. You want a good value, you want classes that you're interested in and you want to make sure the school helps you succeed in your journey.

At UW Colleges Online, we value student success. What's the point of going to college if you just become a number, or don't get the resources and support you need? Here's how students find success at UW Colleges Online:

1. Personalized attention from professors and staff

A big question students have about online learning is, “How much time will I get with my professors?” As our own students can tell you, our professors and advisors are there every step of the way answering questions and providing encouragement. Success at UW Colleges Online starts with professors and staff that are invested in you.

2. Exceptional faculty focused on teaching

Not only do our faculty make an effort to connect with students, but they're also pretty smart. More than 90 percent of our professors hold the highest degree in their field. They also spend the vast majority of their time teaching and interacting with students, which you won't find at many traditional universities. That means a highly trained professor will work with you every step of the way as you learn, grow and succeed.

3. Dedicated tutors and academic resources
