The University of Wisconsin Colleges was the UW System’s network of 14 freshman/sophomore campuses (including UW Colleges Online) that offered an Associate of Arts and Sciences Degree which prepared students of all ages and backgrounds to transfer into baccalaureate and professional programs. Six of these 14 campuses offered a Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree.
Effective July 1, 2018, the 13 “brick-and-mortar” two-year campuses joined seven of the UW System’s four-year comprehensive or research institutions as branch campuses. Each two-year campus is now accredited through their affiliated four-year university. UW Colleges Online, the fourteenth campus, will continue to offer courses for 2018-19.
As of July 2018, UW Colleges is a non-accredited service provider of central services for seven UW receiving institutions in the state.
