Admission Policies and Procedures

To All Applicants

This section provides general admission information for degree-seeking and special students. Professional development courses or courses for personal enjoyment can be found through the Continuing Education Institute.

Those who intend to earn a degree or become a special student must apply for admission to the university. Please see the admission procedures below.

Special Notice

All applicants must provide the university with accurate information about personal and educational history. Students who intentionally falsify or omit information, as part of their university record will be suspended.

Admission Procedures

Admission procedures and standards vary. Learn more about the admission procedures for each area below. 

Credits By Examination

Some students may be eligible to receive college credits based on their Advanced Placement or College Level Examination Program scores; still others may choose to take test-outs developed by individual departments on the UW-Platteville campus. In addition, most veterans are eligible to receive some advanced credit for their service.

Since many of the credits awarded by examination or review count toward the general education requirements, students should read both this chapter and the general education chapter of the catalog thoroughly before registering for courses.
