Dean's Message


Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee at Washington County. I invite you to browse our website, Viewbook or visit our campus to learn more about what we have to offer. A true gem located in the heart of the beautiful Kettle Moraine, you’ll like what you see! We offer the best of two academic worlds with small classes and dedicated faculty that you would expect at a private college, along with access to the resources of a world-class university system.

Our growing curriculum, small classes, and experienced faculty provide students with their best start on a high-quality education with the lowest tuition rates in the University of Wisconsin System. That best start also means that UWM at Washington County students graduate at higher rates than any other transfer students. The Guaranteed Transfer Program assures students that they can enter any four-year campus in the UW System with junior standing, allowing a seamless transition to complete their degree. 

At UWM at Washington County, there's much life beyond the classroom too! Here students can learn leadership skills and get involved with athletics, student government, student clubs and music. Additional enrichment opportunities include our Fine Arts programsCommunity Lecture Series, Festival of Arts, and Continuing Education offerings.

Join us and find out why we’re the best start for the life you want!
