UW-Madison Connections Program
The Connections Program offers select applicants, who are Wisconsin residents, the opportunity to start at a partner college or university and finish their bachelor's degree at UW-Madison -- and hold the distinctive UW-Madison student status from the beginning.
Some high school graduates are ready to start out at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, while some might want or need to start at another Wisconsin college or university. But everyone who desires a degree from UW-Madison wants to know they are on the right path to that degree. The Connections Program gives Wisconsin’s students a clear path to earning a UW-Madison degree.
Students who participate in this unique program are dually admitted to UW–Madison and one of the 20 Connections partner campuses. The students enroll as freshmen at a partner campus and simultaneously receive most new freshman privileges at UW–Madison. Upon completion of the Connections Program, the students enroll at UW–Madison as juniors to continue studies toward a bachelor’s degree.
There are three ways to join the UW-Madison Connections Program:
Once a student has been accepted into the Connections Program, they must submit the agreement by May 1.
