Earn your bachelor’s degree at UW-Sheboygan

UW Bachelor’s Degree and Distance Education Fair set for April 10
By UW-Sheboygan

You’ve always wanted a University of Wisconsin bachelor’s degree, but couldn’t imagine how you’d make time in your busy life to commute.  Today, the opportunities to earn a UW degree without commuting have never been greater. 

Consider completing your bachelor’s degree through the University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan and its four-year UW partners, who offer a wide variety of collaborative and distance education degree programs. It’s now possible to earn many bachelor’s (and master’s) degrees, without commuting, in programs specially designed to accommodate the busy schedules of working adults.  Required courses are usually completed through a combination of face-to-face, online and/or other distance delivery methods.

Learn how accessible and affordable a degree from the University of Wisconsin can be.  On Thursday, April 10, 2014, UW-Sheboygan will host a Bachelor’s Degree and Distance Education Fair from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4 to 6 p.m. in the UW-Sheboygan Main Lobby.  The public is invited and encouraged to attend.  Enter through the Acuity Technology Center entrance adjoining the West parking lot and proceed up the stairs to the lobby area.

At the degree fair, guests will have the opportunity to learn how they can earn the first 60 credits or more at UW-Sheboygan, completing an associate degree while also completing general education requirements, pre-professional courses, or a certificate, either in class or online.  Guests will also have an opportunity to speak with four-year partner institution representatives about completing the remaining bachelor’s degree requirements without ever commuting.

  • UW-Platteville – BS in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering (ABET accredited, professional degree)
