University Access for Nontraditional Learners

Continuing Studies supports the mission of the university and the spirit of the Wisconsin Idea by facilitating access to university education and resources. We have opened doors to learning for people throughout Wisconsin and the nation through services for nontraditional students, programs with alternative delivery methods, and strategic use of resources.
