AA-Criminal Justice
Prairie du Chien and Online

Going to school was not an option for me because I couldn’t afford to cut my hours to accommodate college, until I found UIU. I looked and looked for an online school that would be a good fit and meet my needs, many of the online offerings just didn’t seem right. I have successfully completed college thanks to all of my professors and my advisor keeping me on track.
