*The requirements listed are for the academic school year 2019-20. Admission requirements will vary based on the year the applicant graduated from high school. New freshman are likely to be admitted to UW-Platteville if they complete the 17 college preparatory units and rank in the top 75 percent of their class.
Applicants who have not graduated from a recognized high school must provide evidence of satisfactory completion of the requirements for a high school equivalency certificate or a diploma (HSED) from a recognized high school, school system or state department of public instruction based on a Graduation Equivalency Diploma (GED) examination and other established criteria.
Home Schooled Students
To be considered for admission, home-schooled students must provide official transcripts from school(s) attended, a transcript of courses taken at home and grades signed by the individual providing the education verifying the curriculum, an official ACT or SAT score, and any other information related to the student’s education.
Courses taken in the home school curriculum would be considered for admission purposes only. No credit will be given for university degree requirements unless one of the following applies:
High school courses are completed through an accredited high school, college or university.
The student successfully passes and completes a recognized exam program (i.e. CLEP)
If you do not meet the traditional admission requirements at the time of your graduation from high school, you may be considered for admission on an individual basis.
Transfer and Re-Entry Students
Transfer students that apply for admission must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0, plus good standing at the university most recently attended. If the GPA is less than 2.0, you will be considered for admission if more than five years have elapsed since the last attended school or two years if the last school you attended was UW-Platteville. You may petition in writing for an exception to the required five-year lapse of time. If you were on probation at the last institution that you attended, five years must have elapsed since the probationary status or two years if the last school you attended was UW-Platteville.
Demonstrate proficiency in English by taking the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL® Test) score to the Center for Distance Learning.

If you have taken the TOEFL, you must request official evidence be sent from the testing agency directly to the Center for Distance Learning, indicating the date on which you took the examination and your score.
