The online UW Bachelor of Science in Applied Computing is a partnership of UW Extended Campus and University of Wisconsin campuses: UW-Milwaukee, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Platteville, UW-River Falls, and UW-Stevens Point. Our multi-campus partnership means you’ll learn from distinguished faculty across the UW System with diverse, interdisciplinary expertise and strong connections to the industry.
Although you will take courses taught by faculty from all five partner campuses, you will apply to a “home” campus. Your home campus is the institution from which you will receive financial aid (if you qualify), advising, career services, and your diploma. Your choice of a home campus is a matter of personal preference unless you live near one of these institutions and wish to take advantage of on-campus resources once you become an enrolled student.

If your native language is not English and/or you attended school outside of the U.S., you will likely need to provide proof of English language proficiency and an official translation or evaluation of academic transcripts. Requirements will vary based on a student’s academic history and home campus policies. For guidance about these requirements and how they apply to your specific situation contact your preferred home campus admissions office.
