Online Learning offering higher education to wider audiences

By Michael R. Lovell, Milwaukee Courier

College is often thought of as only for young men and women straight out of high school. The reality at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is quite different. UWM enrolls more students age 35 or older – more than 3,000 total – than any other four-year university in Wisconsin. And nearly one-third of all UWM students are age 25 or older. And finally, UWM continues to make more of its academic programs available online for those whose work or family schedules may not allow for taking classes on campus. For the fall 2011 semester, nearly 7,400 students were enrolled in at least one online course, and 1,600 individuals were enrolled exclusively in online courses. The University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee offers a wide variety of academic options. We take great pride in ensuring that people who do not fit the traditional mold of a college student can take advantage of these options, too.
