On June 29, 2018, the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) approved the joining of UW Oshkosh, UW-Fond du Lac and UW-Fox Valley.


The purpose of the joining is to expand access to higher education by offering more general education and upper-level courses, as well as identify and reduce barriers to transferring credits within the UW System. UW-Fond du Lac, UW-Fox Valley and UW Oshkosh share a rich history in partnership and collaboration—through academic articulation agreements, continuing education programming, resource sharing and more. An excellent foundation exists for this great new university.
