Information on the Closures of the Waukesha and Washington County Campuses

February 7, 2024

Last fall, UWM announced that it will be closing the Washington County campus by June 30, 2024. We know you may have questions and are working on determining the next steps in your college career. 

Today, we are providing an update on transfer information to help you plan. You are urged to reach out to your advisor to discuss your options and for any assistance with the transfer process.  

New Transfer Option 

Under a new agreement, UWM and Moraine Park Technical College have made it easier for Washington County students to transfer to MPTC and complete the MPTC Associate of Arts degree. MPTC is also one of four regional tech schools whose associate degree graduates are guaranteed admission to a UWM bachelor’s degree program and the seamless transfer of at least 60 credits. However, you might need to meet certain requirements to be admitted to specific majors. 

If you are planning to finish your associate degree and want to remain in the West Bend area, this could be a good option for you. Reach out to your advisor for more information. 

UWM Guaranteed Admission

As a UWM at Washington County student, you will have the option to transition to the UWM location of your choice. However, you might need to meet certain requirements to be admitted to specific majors. 

Tuition and Scholarship Information

Tuition and scholarship information was shared in the December email to Washington County students. Information can also be found in the FAQs section of this College of General Studies webpage
