The University Without Walls (UWW) Program is a competency-based degree program that leads to a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree. UWW recognizes learning that occurs outside of the traditional classroom. Students work with an academic advisor, a community advisor and the UWW advisor to design an individualized curriculum.
If you are a self-directed learner and have a clear academic direction, the unique features of the UWW program provide a path to attaining a baccalaureate degree. Your program will:
- be competency-based and self-directed
- include an individualized curriculum
- provide alternatives to traditional classrooms
- provide involvement with university faculty
