Degree Information Night for adults interested in completing a college degree is being planned at UW-Washington County (UW-WC). This event provides a convenient “one-stop shop” for busy time-constrained adults.  Degree Night takes place on Wednesday, August 3 from 4pm to 6pm in Room 101 of the West Bend campus located at 400 University Drive (off Hwy. 33) in West Bend.  Interested adults are encouraged to stop in and learn more by picking up information, talking to advisors or taking a campus tour. Advisors from four UW campuses – including UW-Milwaukee, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Platteville, and UW-WC will be on hand to provide information and answer questions. Information about the evening Washington Express degree program now available in both Hartford and Grafton, will also be available.

Campus advisors will include:  UW-WC: Kim Schwamn and Laurie Kuehn; UW-Milwaukee: Angie Runingen and Jim Klingbiel; UW-Oshkosh: Melissa Schmidt; UW-Platteville: Jennifer Foley.

Bachelor degree programs available at UW-WC include: UW-Milwaukee: Communications, Information Resources, Nursing, and Organizational Administration; UW-Oshkosh: Applied Studies; Liberal Studies with a Leadership Emphasis (accelerated evening program); UW-Platteville: Electrical and Mechanical Engineering.

Freshman and sophomore level classes in over 200 majors are also availalbe at the West Bend campus allowing students to save considerably on tuition and then transfer during their junior year to a public or private institution. Starting a college education at UW-Washington County provides an affordable option for area students, allowing them to live at home and save thousands of dollars on room and board,  parking, and other fees. The Guaranteed transfer program helps ensure that all credits transfer.

The UW Colleges specialize in providing a strong foundation for students. Statistics have shown that students who begin their studies at a 2-year UW Colleges campus have higher graduation rates than those who begin their studies at a 4-year campus.
