Flexible Learning for Non-Degree/Guest Students

A Wisconsin leader in higher education, UW-Milwaukee offers flexible learning options for non-degree/guest students.

If you’ve decided to change or pause your previous college plans, you can still explore your interests and keep working toward your degree with a virtual or in-person learning path that makes sense for you, your schedule and your budget.

Our flexible learning options might be right for you if you are…

  • a recent high school graduate deferring college for now.
  • a current college student at another institution who is taking a break and staying close to home.
  • a high school student who wants a jump-start on general education college credits.
  • a college student looking for an alternative gap year experience.

The investment you make in your college education will pay off for the rest of your life. How much will studying at UWM cost? Although tuition and fees for Fall 2020 won’t be posted until early August, you can estimate the per credit cost* from Spring 2020 as a good guide. Generally, an in-state student will pay approximately $1,700 for a three-credit class taken during the fall or spring semesters.

*Non-Degree/Guest students do not automatically qualify for federal student aid. Please contact the Department of Financial Aid with questions about your eligibility.
