About Tampa

We are excited to announce that as of July 2016, Florida's Commission for Independent Education has approved two provisional licenses for Western Michigan University, paving the way for WMU to offer aviation and several other high-profile academic programs in Charlotte and Hillsborough counties.

One of the provisional licenses will allow the University to operate a campus at 9445 Camden Field Parkway in Riverview. The Riverview location already is home to a law school—the WMU Cooley Law School—which is affiliated with the University.

Academic Programs

Included on the list of authorized programs are several from WMU’s nationally recognized health and human services disciplines as well as from the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

Final approval for WMU program offerings must come from the Higher Learning Commission, which is the University's accreditation body. Once such approvals are obtained, WMU and its Florida partners will work out final details for those degree programs.

Please contact us if you’d like to be updated as programs are approved or have questions.

Online Anytime

WMU Online Education currently offers a variety of excellent degrees and certificates entirely online to students across the country. Whether you’re in Tampa Bay or Tuscon, you can learn and achieve at your own pace.
