The University of Wisconsin Colleges is the UW System’s network of 14 freshman/sophomore campuses (including UW Colleges Online) that offer an Associate of Arts and Science degree and prepare students of all ages and backgrounds to transfer into baccalaureate and professional programs. Six of our campuses offer a Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences. The UW Colleges serves more than 13,000 students.

The UW Colleges mission is to make a University of Wisconsin education affordable and accessible to all. UW Colleges campuses charge the lowest tuition in the UW System. They admit every qualified student who applies. They serve more first-generation college students, more part-time students and more adult undergraduate students than any other UW institution.
