The online UW Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness Management is a partnership of UW Extended Campus and UW-La Crosse, UW-River Falls, UW-Stevens Point, and UW-Superior. Our multi-campus partnership means you’ll learn from distinguished faculty across the UW System with diverse, interdisciplinary expertise and strong connections to the industry.
Although you will take courses taught by faculty from all partner campuses, you will apply to a “home” campus. Your home campus is the institution from which you will receive financial aid, advising, career services, and your diploma.
To learn more about this campus partner, explore the UW-La Crosse campus website.
The College of Science and Health is the academic home for the Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness Management degree at UW-La Crosse.
To be eligible for admission to the UW Health and Wellness Management (HWM) Program, students are required to have:
- An associate degree (as described below) or a minimum of 60 semester credits of transferable coursework with a 2.00 or better grade point average (GPA).
- The following prerequisite courses need to be completed for program admission: Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to Biology, Introduction to Public Speaking and Composition II.
The associate degree must be a college parallel program from an accredited four-year institution or two-year collegiate transfer program. For example, an associate of arts, associate of science, or associate of art and science degree. An associate of applied science degree does not meet the requirements for admission to the HWM program at UW-La Crosse. Students admitted with an associate of arts, associate of science, or associate of art and science degree are still required to meet all core, professional, ethnic studies, major, and minor requirements. The university reserves the right to review a student’s associate degree and require additional general education courses. The maximum number of credits transferable from a two-year institution is 72.
