"Governor Walker would like to finish his degree through the UW FlexOption once they expand the degree offerings," spokeswoman Laurel Patrick said.

Walker left school his senior year to take a full-time job with the American Red Cross.

“The reason I went to college, in large part, was not just to get an education for an education’s sake, but to get a job,” he told reporters in November.

He said he tried to be a part-time student, but couldn't keep up with it when his children were born.

As governor, he has advocated for the University of Wisconsin's online FlexOption, which is designed for people with some college credits looking to finish their degree.
