Adult Student Program

Thinking of Returning to College?

Matt Jones, UWMC Sophomore

At UWMC, over 30% of our students are returning adults, age 22 and over.  

We offer many services designed with the adult student in mind.

"When deciding to return to college, I chose UWMC based on its low-tuition, the convenience of attending a local campus, and its family-type atmosphere.
After starting my classes, I soon realized that UWMC is a gem, readying me for any challenges when I move on to UW-Stout to complete my construction management degree."

- Matt Jones, UWMC Sophomore
