Students choose UWM at Washington County for its personalized education style, quality teaching and affordable price.

At the Washington County campus, students build a strong academic foundation that results in an Associate of Arts and Sciences (AAS) degree and the start of a bachelor’s degree at UWM or another UW System campus. Nontraditional students who are expanding their skill sets or exploring their passions are also an integral part of the campus community.

UWM at Washington County History

UWM at Washington County was created in 2018 when UW-Washington County joined with UWM as part of the University of Wisconsin System’s reorganization of the two-year campuses formerly known as UW Colleges. Now students at the Washington County campus get the benefits of being part of a large research university, including big UWM social events and Panther basketball games, while still enjoying a small, friendly college community on their home campus.
