Information

What is the UW-Milwaukee College Connection?

The UW-Milwaukee College Connection is a UW-Milwaukee Collaborative Degree Program created and administered in partnership with participating UW-Colleges.

If you are someone who lives in the proximity of UW-Waukesha and want to pursue a Bachelor's Degree but cannot figure out how to add another commute into your already full schedule, the College Connection might be your answer.

UW-Milwaukee is traveling to the UW-Waukesha campus to make it possible for you to obtain a UW-Milwaukee Bachelor of Arts Degree in Organizational Administration, Communication, or a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Science & Technology (with an optional minor in Business Administration).  The Milwaukee classes are taught completely on-site on the UW-Waukesha campus because of a partnership formed between UW-Milwaukee and the UW Colleges. This program provides students with a fully accredited baccalaureate degree program that suits your needs for convenience and quality.

How does the College Connection Program work?

For many students, the first step is to seek admission to UW-Waukesha. After you have been admitted, you take courses that fulfill requirements for an Associate's Degree. Many of the courses you complete for your Associate's Degree are also the foundation courses needed for the program. (If you already hold an Associate's Degree from UW-Waukesha or another accredited college, or have many credits from a recognized college or university, you will have already completed the first step!)

A UW-Milwaukee Advisor is on-site to assist you with the admissions process, to help you choose classes, to discuss career-related issues, to figure out specific degree requirements and to answer any questions you have about the program.

After your Associate's Degree is completed, you transfer to UW-Milwaukee with a major in Organizational Administration, Communication Science & an optional Business Minor. However, you do not have to drive to the UW-Milwaukee campus to complete the degree; instead, UW-Milwaukee brings the classes you need to UW-Waukesha. The on-site UW-Milwaukee advisor will explain this process in detail. Once you gain admittance to UW-Milwaukee, you begin taking the UW- Milwaukee courses needed to complete major, minor, and degree requirements---all this from the UW-Waukesha campus. It is that simple!
