UW-Platteville Selected as One of the Best Online Colleges in Wisconsin

March 22, 2017

Best Colleges in Wisconsin for 2017 by BestColleges.comDid you know that the average college student enrolls in a program within 100 miles of their home? In the past, this limited opportunities for many of Wisconsin’s rural communities and only one in four Wisconsin adults earned a college degree. The University of Wisconsin-Platteville is working to change that through their easily accessible online courses and these efforts have earned the university a Best Online Colleges in Wisconsin designation for 2017.

“A degree can open many doors to career opportunities in today’s business world,” said Dawn Drake, Executive Director of UW-Platteville’s Alternative Delivery Systems. “We offer students an affordable education that they can pursue while balancing a career and their personal lives and, thanks to technology, we can reach more students than ever before.”

UW-Platteville Online is part of the UW System eCampus. This system connects the state’s 26 two-year and four-year colleges to provide students with the course and program options that fit their needs.

BestColleges.com creates the annual rankings based on academic quality, affordability, and online competency. The 2017 rankings reflect the most recent data available from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) and College Navigator, both of which are hosted by the National Center for Education Statistics.
