About Us

UWG Online makes higher education a possibility for those who face obstacles to taking undergraduate or graduate courses in a traditional face-to-face classroom setting. We seek to extend the ability to earn credit toward a degree or certification program to those whose life circumstances, such as work, family, or distance, make attending face-to-face traditional classes impractical.

Through distance learning, students can attend class whenever and wherever is convenient to them just with the use of an internet connection. Our diverse student population is spread across the country and internationally. Our staff is dedicated to helping students succeed in online courses and enabling distance faculty to focus on teaching rather than technology. For information about online learning and how to get started, please visit our website: http://uwgonline.westga.edu/
