You’ve chosen UW Colleges Online to help you reach your goal – whether it be an associate degree, a better job or a new chapter. Now we’ll help you make the admissions and enrollment process as simple as possible. 

The Basics


Apply for Admission

It all starts here. All applying students need to complete the University of Wisconsin System application for admission. You can apply online or by mail. In addition to your application, you may need to submit an application fee, American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) results, and your official high school transcripts or GED record. See below to determine which type of student you are and which items are required.


Enroll in Classes

If you’ve applied, submitted all of the necessary requirements and have been admitted, it’s time to enroll in classes.(Or, you can simply browse our available courses.)

What type of student are you?

Before you apply for admission, it’s best to determine which type of student you are. Figuring that out will help you know exactly what you need to submit (additional documentation, fees) to ensure a speedy admission process.
