But it’s about more than the degree. For every online student, enrolling in UWM Online is both a professional and a personal decision.

Here's what some recent grads have to say:

This program gives any person, at any stage of his or her life, not to mention anywhere in the world, the opportunity to fulfill their professional goals.

Lorena Northern Virginia English to Spanish Translation Master's Program

My goal was to find an excellent university with high quality programs to harbor and mentor me closely, to identify my specific learning needs and to provide me with an adequate education. The more research I did about UWM Online, the more I wanted to be a graduate of that institution.

Amal Muscat, Oman Nursing doctoral student

It is important to me to receive my degree from a real college with a physical location. It might be old school, but it’s important to me.

Sara Verona, Wisconsin Sociology graduate

UWM’s program was recommended to me by a few professional translators I spoke to as the best program they were aware of for providing solid professional training for the translation industry.

Andrea Portland, Oregon German to English Translation Master's Program

The BSN@home program worked great for me, because it was flexible with my work and personal life. The online courses were easy to navigate and I think the instructors were helpful.

Nursing Student 2015 Survey of Graduates

I chose an online degree program because I’m a working mother. I needed something that was flexible and allowed me to complete my work in a way that enabled me to still be completely present in my children’s lives.

Theresa Sheboygan, Wisconsin Psychology graduate

Being able to earn my degree completely online was a necessity. I am a nontraditional student and already work more than full time. Traditional courses were not an option; UWM’s online program gave me a choice.

The flexibility was the best part. I could do my work in small bits when I had a moment during the week, or get all of it done on Sunday, whatever happened to work best with my schedule that week.

Maegan Alberta, Canada Therapeutic Recreation Certificate

My degree of choice was offered at UWM, and allowed me to transfer many credits from Milwaukee Area Technical College and complete my degree online.
