Online learning is a lot like face-to-face learning, except you can access your classroom anytime, anywhere, from nearly any device. A simple Web interface makes it easy to access courses, connect with instructors and classmates, check your grades, and get support when you need it.
In addition, the UW Bachelor of Science in Applied Computing program features an innovative Virtual Lab that lets you remotely access software tools and programming languages via a virtual desktop—saving you the time and expense of purchasing and installing these applications on your own computer.
A genuine University of Wisconsin degree
An online UW Bachelor of Science in Applied Computing is as recognized and respected as a UW degree granted to students who attend courses on campus. It offers you the same accredited, first-class education, renowned faculty, and rigorous standards that the University of Wisconsin is known for and that employers highly regard.
Online, but not alone
Many students are surprised to find that they get to know their instructors and classmates better online than in a traditional classroom. You will receive personal attention from your instructors as they deliver lessons, direct you through activities, and answer your questions. You will feel connected and supported as you engage with other students through email, chat, video conferencing, discussion boards, and more.
Online courses offer greater flexibility than classroom-based courses. Students still have deadlines and due dates, but there is never a specific time you need to be online. This makes it much easier to earn your degree while still having time for work and family commitments. Online learning also eliminates the need to drive to campus, find a place to park, and hike to the classroom.
