If you are considering an advanced degree and trying to find the right Graduate School fit for you, come to UWM to meet with faculty and staff from our over 135 graduate master’s, doctoral and graduate certificates – both online and on-campus – during our 7th annual Graduate School Open House. You’ll be able to obtain an overview of our programs, ask questions about the admissions process, and discover financial aid benefits that are available. Appetizers will also be available.

This is an exciting time for the UWM community – come take a look! UWM was classified as an R1 research institution once again by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. This means that UWM is at the highest level of research activity possible; a rating that was given to only 131 of the 4,665 universities evaluated. UWM is one of only two universities in Wisconsin that received the rating.
