Continuum College is poised to take programs to the next level through new learning models and innovative spin-offs — from distance learning and shared access, to professional degrees, certificates, conferences and workshops.

Why Choose Us

For more than 105 years, we've been expanding the reach of the UW. Our experts in fee-based, or self-sustaining, degree and certificate program development, international English language learning, conference management, instructional design, marketing and more power over 500 programs and events every year on behalf of the UW.

Degrees & Certificates

In addition to more than 85 certificates and specializations as well as dozens of courses, we manage nearly 70 degree programs. We start by helping to define the scope and possible reach of your program, then we work with you to create a sustainable financial model.

For most self-sustaining programs, Continuum College provides the money and services to get the program off the ground. But we're not a vendor providing start-up funding and services; we are an internal UW partner for the life of the program.
