University of Wisconsin Colleges Online is dedicated to bringing affordable, high-quality UW System education to all types of students – including returning students, UW Colleges campus students, high school students and active service members – so that they can achieve their life and career goals. Today they enroll about 2,000 students per term and offer more than 80 courses at any given time. Seventy percent of our students are part-time, 50 percent are first generation college students and 62 percent are older than 22.
As the organization's online hub, the website is continually active with visitors and contains a vast amount of information and resources. Most notably, the entire course listing and academic calendar can be browsed, searched, and filtered, giving students the tools necessary to plan their studies. Additionally, students can submit various applications and requests through the site. The backend features custom-built workflow and data import systems.
