Why Students Transfer To UW Colleges Online

The end of the semester is a perfect time for students to take a moment and think about where they are in their college journey. Are they getting the attention they deserve from professors? Are they having trouble dealing with rising tuition costs? Maybe they're looking for a better fit? 

UW Colleges Online gives students the chance to continue their education at an institution that better fits their lifestyle. Online education offers a variety of advantages over traditional schooling, and these are just a few reasons students transfer to UW Colleges Online.

College is a major investment. UW Colleges Online offers the lowest tuition in the UW System, which gives students the chance to save thousands of dollars every year. This gives transfer students a chance to receive or continue their University of Wisconsin education at a fraction of the cost.

Sometimes students enroll at larger universities and discover they feel like nothing more than a number. Lecture halls swell with hundreds of students, it's tough to connect with professors and advising appointments can be hard to come by. UW Colleges Online offers a private school feel at a public school price, so each student gets the attention, education and guidance they deserve.
