The faculty and the student support team of the online Bachelor of Arts in Early Care & Education program are committed to supporting you as you enter the program, earn your degree, and prepare for your future. Teaching and advising are student-centered and designed to help you successfully navigate the program and achieve your goals.

Personalized Advising & Community-Based Learning Support

Our support approach is holistic, encompassing all aspects of your student experience. Support ranges from academic planning and community-based learning placements, to career guidance and resource referrals, and more.

At the start of the program, you’ll meet with your adviser to develop an individualized graduation plan. Then you’ll connect regularly to check in on progress and discuss any obstacles you might be facing. Your community-based learning coordinator will work with you to identify and establish a community-based learning site. If you need help, we are here to listen and point you to available UW resources.
