Hear from some of our students about returning to school and completing a degree at UW-Fond du Lac! 

Have any of these thoughts crossed your mind as you considered going back to college to earn your degree?

"I'm too old to go back to school."
"I don't have the time to go back to school."
"I've been out of school for too long."
"I didn't do that well in high school or college."

Many adults think these very same things. Yes, you are busy. Yes, you may have doubts. Yes, your time is precious. And, yes, you absolutely can do this!

 Get to know a little about other UW-Fond du Lac adult students. Here's a profile:

Any student 22 years of age and older is defined as a returning adult student
On average, 30-35% of our total student population are adult students
7% attend classes on a part-time basis
43.5% are male; 56.5% are female

Are you concerned about fitting in classes given your already busy schedule?

Campus courses are offered at convenient times for adult students who have, as you very well know, increasingly complex schedules -- during the morning, afternoon and evening. If late afternoon or evening courses are what you need, consider this -- many courses are scheduled in the late afternoon or evening hours each semester.

If you have always dreamed of a University of Wisconsin degree, look no further as you have come to the right place. Let us help you make the dream of an earned University of Wisconsin degree a reality!

Do you work full-time during the day?

We have developed our Evening Associate Degree program with you in mind. All courses required for completion are offered in the evening. You can earn your associate degree in three years by averaging two classes per semester.

Do you find it difficult to attend classes because of your ever-changing schedule due to business travel or other circumstances?

Then, consider the flexibility of our online courses! These courses are completed entirely over Internet. You can even complete the entire Associate degree online. Please refer to for more information on online course options.
