Returning Adult Students

About 37% of UW-Baraboo/Sauk County students are returning adults (age 22 or older). As an adult student on our campus, you’ll benefit from services designed with you in mind, and you'll have other students to relate to. If you're an adult looking to return to school, you’ll fit right in at UW-BSC.

Adults begin their college education or return to college for many different reasons, including:

  • To improve employment opportunities
  • To earn a degree
  • To learn new skills
  • To pursue areas of special interest
  • To challenge their minds
  • To begin a different career

To help juggle your busy schedule, day, evening and online courses are available. It's possible to earn an associate’s degree by taking all evening courses. Search our Courses to find late afternoon and evening classes.

How does it work?

If you begin or continue your education at UW-Baraboo/Sauk County you will be entering (or re-entering) the University of Wisconsin System. That means that all coursework completed at UW-BSC will transfer to any UW System institution.

UW-BSC offers the Associates of Arts and Sciences degree, which is approximately halfway to a bachelor’s degree and which meets the general education requirements at most of the UW 4-year institutions. Most of our students will transfer to complete their bachelor’s degree at the university of their choice, based on several factors: their intended major, distance from home, and comfort with the size and atmosphere of the institution.
