Our goal is to make a high quality University of Wisconsin education available to as many people as possible. From in-person to online to other distance learning options, we have a variety of class options available for you to achieve your goals, on your schedule. Visit the course schedules page to see individual campus class options.


Visit the UW Colleges Catalog for official course descriptions and more.


Visit the UW Colleges Online, where you will find information about application, registration, courses, costs and requirements. You may take courses at your home campus and UW Colleges Online at the same time.

If you are interested in signing up for online courses please note that UW Colleges Online’s registration deadline may be earlier than the campus deadline, and the tuition for UW Colleges Online classes is not part of full time tuition paid at another UW campus.  All online courses are individually charged a per credit rate.



Effective July 1, 2018, the 13 two-year campuses formerly known as UW Colleges, joined seven of the UW System’s four-year comprehensive or research institutions as branch campuses. The two-year campuses, programs and course offerings are now accredited through their affiliated four-year university.
