Quality instructors who understand the material.Clean modules, supportive faculty, and academic advisors are readily available. Preview week is setup for you to get started before the term begins, as there are assignments due weekly, which is beneficial. Assignments include discussions, team projects, quizzes, and papers, all with a fair grading system. Canvas has a user friendly interface, and instructors post their material in a timely manner. Advisors are there to help you each step of the way, and are knowledgeable and supportive. Financial aid is available, but not so much for distance students, many local scholarships it seems. Online library is comprehensive and easy to navigate. Classes are geared towards your major, but also have plenty of elective classes, providing a diverse and well-round educational experience. Many classes are being converted to 8 week module, rather than a full 16 week term, allowing more options and to focus on one class at time

Highly recommend this school for on campus or online distance learning
Great school for those who love the small-town, smaller classroom vibe. I grew up on a farm and this was a great fit for me as it's located in the rolling hills of Southwestern Wisconsin. Along with this comes a very strong engineering program that is recognized by many larger companies. If you are into having a strong sports team presence, Platteville may not be right for you as it is D3 and sports aren't a strong focus. Although you can have plenty of fun with campus activities, the town livens up on weekends at the bars or at house parties!
