A partnership between University of Wisconsin System campuses and UW Extended Campus, the innovative UW Flexible Option offers a more personalized, convenient, and affordable way for adults to earn a degree or certificate from a University of Wisconsin institution while balancing work, family, and other commitments.
The UW Flexible Option is competency based-education, which is different from both face-to-face classroom instruction and traditional online instruction. In a UW Flexible Option program, you will:
- Advance at a pace you control. Progress toward your degree is based on assessments of key competencies determined by UW faculty, not seat time in a classroom. Take assessments whenever you are ready. Pass one and move on to the next.
- Receive personalized support. A dedicated Academic Success Coach will work with you to create your learning plan and a timeline tailored to fit your goals and knowledge.
- Start when you want, at the beginning of any month. Your progress is not limited by a traditional semester or term-based schedule, and you can take breaks in between subscription periods if and when you need to.
- Learn skills employers value. By passing assessments of critical competencies, you will prove your mastery of the skills and knowledge that are important to employers.
Best of all, you graduate with an accredited degree from a University of Wisconsin institution that is recognized and respected.
