You Decide What’s Next

You have a whole new set of choices once you graduate high school. If these are some of the things that are important to you, you’re ready for Western:

Learning That Isn’t Boring

At Western, you don't just sit at a desk. You get up and actually do it, working side by side with expert instructors.

A Program to Keep You on Track

Get into the work world fast with interactive classes and skill-building internships. Most programs can be completed in two years or less. See the programs now.

Instructors with Experience

You’ll learn directly from instructors who have been there and done it.

Our Graduates Succeed

Get ready to be impressed. Over 1,400 Western graduates enter the workforce each year, and 99 percent of them are employed within 6 months of graduating. 87 percent find work in Wisconsin with a median starting salary of $41,597.

Lower Tuition!

You’ll get more for your tuition dollar here. Looking at a four-year college or university? Do your first two years at Western, for less. Scholarship and financial aid opportunities, too.

Credit Transfer

Did you earn college credit while in high school? Transferring in from another college? Western accepts credits from many colleges and universities, and Western credits can be applied toward a four-year degree.

The Option to Live on Campus

Live in a community. Our residence hall can accommodate 200 students, in 50 four-person suites.

Fostering Future Success

Western proactively supports students in the foster care system—and students aging out of the foster system—who are interested in pursuing further education.  

Let’s get together.

It’s never too soon to talk with an Admissions Coach. Ask your counselor when Dave Fish, Haley Hanson, or Mac Kiel will be visiting your high school.
