The University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc is one of the 13 campuses of the University of Wisconsin Colleges, which are part of the 26 campus UW System. UW-Manitowoc offers a freshman-sophomore curriculum, a highly qualified faculty and, along with the other UW Colleges, the lowest tuition in the UW System.

We offer the Associate of Arts and Sciences degree and general education courses, which are the foundation of any bachelor's degree. Students can transfer easily to a UW baccalaureate campus or other public or private institution to complete their degree. For a complete campus overview, visit our viewbook
