Several of our campuses’ admissions offices have changed details about their guidelines for students who will be applying as new freshmen for fall 2016. Please spread these important details to your juniors as they prepare to take their exams and finalize their course schedules.
These are the most significant changes:
- UW-Eau Claire no longer requires two years of a single high school foreign language for admission. Also, it requires official ACT/SAT scores, received directly from the testing agency.
- UW-Madison no longer requires the writing portion of the ACT.
- UW-Stout now lists a profile of its admitted students from last fall, and strongly encourages a fourth year of math for some majors.
- UW-Whitewater is becoming more selective and will now typically admit applicants from the top 35% of their class.
To see the rest of the changes, plus full details about our campuses’ admission guidelines for their fall 2016 applicants, see uwhelp.wisconsin.edu/new-admissions-guidelines/.
This information is nearly official. Official information will be printed in the Introduction to the UW System this fall, and will be updated on our website this summer.
