Who Can Apply?

The Bachelor of Professional Studies in Organizational Leadership and Communication program allows adults to work on a degree and career goals at the same time. If you completed an Associate of Arts and Science degree from the University of Wisconsin Colleges, please apply directly to the BPS program.

If you completed a liberal arts Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree at another academic institution, or at least 60 credits of general education coursework in a bachelor's degree program, just contact us to find out how your work may transfer. If you completed an associate degree at a technical or vocational college, you will likely need to take additional coursework to satisfy your general education requirements prior to applying to the Bachelor of Professional Studies program. You may fulfill these requirements through an online program offered by UW Colleges Online.

If you need to complete your Associate of Arts and Science before applying for the BPS, you may also do so through UW Colleges Online. Before trying to enroll in the BPS program, please contact your BPS adviser.
