UW-Madison and UW-Whitewater

K12 Leadership Cooperative Master's Degree Program


The Wisconsin Board of Regents approved the Cooperative Masters of Science Degree Program in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis between the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of  UW-Whitewater on February 5, 1982. 

The cooperative program provides the opportunity for educators in the central regions of Wisconsin to obtain a Master of Science degree, with certification (Principal, Director of Instruction, Director of Special Education and Pupil Services) in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. All required coursework with the exception of the Director of Special Education and Pupil Services certification will be offered on  Whitewater campus.  Director of Special Education and Pupil Services certification will require completion of two UW-Madison classes not offered on the UW-Whitewater campus.

MAINTAINING UW-MADISON ENROLLMENT (WHEN NOT ENROLLED IN A UW-MADISON CLASS)

To maintain enrollment at UW-Madison, when not enrolling in a UW-Madison offered class, cooperative program students enroll in a zero-credit course for the semester not enrolling in a UW-Madison class. This allows students to maintain their enrollment at UW-Madison and not have to apply for reentry each semester.It also allows for continual access to libraries and other enrolled student perks. Contact Shari Smith ssmith@education.wisc.edu for permission to enroll.The course number is 305-600.You do need to enroll by the enrollment deadlines for each semester.

SPECIAL STUDENT COURSE WORK

Graduate School regulations state that a UW-Whitewater Cooperative Program master’s degree candidate must complete a minimum of 15 UW-Madison graduate level credits in order for the degree to be considered a Madison degree.  Courses completed as a special student do not count in the 15 required graduate level credits.  Should a student need to convert up to 6 credits of course work completed as a special student, they may petition the Graduate School to do so.  Once credits are converted, the student is assessed the difference in tuition between special and graduate credits.  

Students enrolled at UW-Madison as a special student are not eligible for financial aid.
