New Freshman Admissions
Freshman Admission Consideration
The university's core values are used as a guide to interpreting the contents of each application presented for admission, and a complete review of all materials is performed for each applicant before making an admission decision. Both the academic and nonacademic factors present in an application are used to make an admission decision. Academic factors include curriculum rigor, high school GPA, rank in class (if available) and standardized test scores. Nonacademic factors include, but are not limited to, leadership, community service, creativity, special talents and personal characteristics that contribute to the strengths and diversity of the university. The most competitive candidates for admission to UW-Whitewater typically possess positive factors in their application that are both academic and nonacademic in nature.
