In order to participate in UW College Courses Online courses there are a few steps you will need to take.

  • You must enroll at a partner home campus as a degree-seeking or special student. You will need to decide on your home campus.  UW-Milwaukee, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Stevens Point and UW-Whitewater are your campus choices for UW College Courses Online.  
  • You will need to apply for admission. Follow the steps below based on the type of student you are.

Important Information!

UW College Courses Online will continue through the Summer 2020 academic term. The UWCCO summer offerings can be found here. At the end of summer, UWCCO will no longer exist.

Beginning in fall 2020, several UW campuses are partnering to offer a fully online Associate of Arts and Sciences degree. This new program has been approved by the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents and is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Applications for this degree program are open, and courses will begin in September 2020. While the new program course offerings will be different than those offered through UWCCO, they will feature the same quality you have come to expect from the UW System.

If you are a current student and have questions, please contact your home campus academic advisor.

Please watch for more information coming from your campus and the UW Extended Campus.
