The requirements listed are for the current catalog year. 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.
NOTE: Temporary Suspension of ACT/SAT Requirements
As of May 7, 2020 new freshmen applicants are not required to submit a test score for their admission review.
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.
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 students who apply for admission must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0, plus good standing at the university most recently attended. Applicants must have 12 or more transferable credits from an accredited institution to be considered for admission as a transfer. Applicants with fewer than 12 credits must meet new freshmen admission guidelines.
