Dean's Message


Stephen SchmidWelcome to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee at Washington County!  As a branch campus of UWM, 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!

Students have the opportunity to complete their freshman and sophomore years in more than 200 academic majors and earn an associate degree. With engaging courses and exceptional faculty, we offer a supportive environment for students who are taking an active role in shaping their futures. When students are ready to pursue a four-year degree, it is easy to continue their studies at UW-Milwaukee or transfer to another UW System or private school.

The small college atmosphere allows students of all ages to find ready access to faculty and staff. In addition, a strong scholarship program and a commitment to student success help empower motivated students to succeed. 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
