William R. Kellett School (Evening/Online) at Lakeland University

Undergraduate and Graduate degrees designed for the busy, working adults through evening and online courses.

William R. Kellett School of Undergraduate & Graduate Studies

For more than four decades, Lakeland University has been a leader in offering non-traditional students innovative pathways to earn their academic degrees and make their career goals a reality.

Today, Lakeland offers a number of pathways and programs for students, especially those who are juggling work and family:

  • LU’s BlendEd and BlendEd Live platforms allow students to decide weekly if they want to attend class in a traditional classroom or access class online. It’s among the most flexible platforms in higher education, and our students love it.
  • Lakeland offers 12- and/or 7-week courses during the fall, spring and summer semesters
  • Lakeland’s student-designed program allows students to earn academic credit for projects they are doing on the job, cutting down the time to graduation and making their learning relevant to their career advancement.
  • Lakeland is especially popular with technical college graduates who wish to earn their bachelor’s degree. Lakeland offers maximum transfer credits and is a popular choice for working adults looking to return to school.
  • Lakeland offers evening classes at six centers around Wisconsin for those students who prefer to learn face to face in real time.

Innovation is nothing new for LU. Since our founding in 1862, we have been a leader in finding ways to help students make their dreams come true. Want to learn more? Contact us at getstarted@lakeland.edu or fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
