RANGER RESTART: Updates, resources, and FAQs


With minimal staff being onsite at UW-Parkside during the COVID-19 pandemic, Professional and Continuing Education will monitor voicemail 262-595-3340 and email continuing.ed@uwp.edu.

Professional and Continuing Education is taking precautionary measures while we support efforts to flatten the curve of COVID-19. We are suspending onsite operations until further notice.

Staff will be remotely accessible by phone and email. We ask for your patience, as the number of individuals working virtually from home continues to grow. The increase in telecommuting may potentially stress the network, causing intermittent technical issues. Please allow up to 72 hours, or three business days, to respond to your questions. We will continue to check our main voicemail (262-595-3340) and the continuing.ed@uwp.edu email regularly and respond to your questions.

Thank you for your patience and choosing UW-Parkside for your professional and continuing educational needs.

Please note that the registration for some of our classes and events is temporarily suspended. Notice will be placed on the individual registration sites regarding registration access. For classes that have been rescheduled, we will continue to update you as the situation develops. To better serve those of you who have already registered for classes and events, we have established an interim refund/cancellation policy:

Refund/Cancellation Policy - All refund fees will be waived for classes and events scheduled before June 1, 2020. If your class or event has been cancelled, you will be notified by email. Voucher options may be available for delayed or rescheduled classes and events. All fees will be waived if a refund is preferred. Due to the sheer volume of refunds, we ask that you allow up to three weeks for processing. Please email any additional questions to continuing.ed@uwp.edu.

UW-Parkside's Professional and Continuing Education wants to assure you that the health of our community is a priority to us.

As a note, be mindful of heightened hygiene protocol, such as hand-washing, etc. as advised by health officials. Be aware of recommendations from the CDC and community health organizations. 

Thank you for your patience and choosing UW-Parkside for your professional and continuing educational needs.

Professional and Continuing Education at UW-Parkside educates and engages you and your organization by offering the highest quality professional development, certificates and certifications, conferences, and personal enrichment workshops. Learning is a lifelong process, and we aim to provide you with a diverse selection of topics and learning forums to fit into your ever-changing lifestyle needs.
