UW Flexible (FLEX) Option Information

The UW Flexible Option is a competency based degree program offered at UW Milwaukee, UW Parkside, and UW Madison.
What is the FLEX program?

Students follow a session-based schedule, being allowed three months to complete each course. Students can choose either the "All You Can Learn" or the single competency options, to complete their program in the most efficient manner possible. The program is self-paced and mainly online, although some programs do require in person attendance for clinical or laboratory content. Courses are offered across all campuses enrolled in the program, so Flex students will have multiple login credentials, dependent upon the campus at which their current competency set is being offered.  

If you have any issues accessing your FLEX account, please be aware that you will not receive access until you are within four months of starting your course. If you are attempting to log into any account prior to the four month window, you will not be able to activate and access PAWS, Canvas and any other systems at your Flex campus.

If you have any issues with missing documentation or are in need of additional Flex information, please contact your FLEX Option team first. If they are unable to help you, please contact the UWM Help Desk via this link: https://uwm.edu/technology/request-support/
