Dean's Message

Dr. Jackie Joseph-Silverstein

Welcome to UW-Washington County, a campus of the University of Wisconsin Colleges-Southeast Region, along with UW-Sheboygan and UW-Waukesha. 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 UW-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. Thanks to partnerships with some of UW System’s four-year institutions, we are also able to provide you with the option of pursuing a bachelor’s degree right here in West Bend.

At UW-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, music and theatre. 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!
