About the former UW Colleges Online

Created in 1998, UW Colleges Online began by offering three popular courses online; 60 students enrolled. Three years later in April 2001, UW Colleges Online received accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Today we enroll about 2,000 students per term and offer more than 125 courses at any given time. Seventy percent of our students are part-time, 50 percent are first generation college students and 62 percent are older than 22.

To align with the new UW System restructuring and better serve our students, UW Colleges Online will become UW College Courses Online in Fall of 2019—offering the same accredited courses, flexible schedule options, transferability and UW faculty as before.
