- Exceptions to the admission requirements may be made on a case-by-case basis.
Due to increasing enrollments, admission may be limited despite fulfillment of the aforementioned entrance requirements.
Application to Degree Programs
- Send a completed application for admission form together with a $56.00 non-refundable application fee payable to UW-Whitewater, to the Graduate Studies Office. All requests to transfer and/or apply previously taken graduate course work toward the degree requirements must be included in the application. Application forms may be obtained from the Graduate Office.
- Submit an official degree-bearing transcript from the institution that granted the bachelor's degree and that includes at least 60 semester hours of course work. If fewer than 60 semester hours of course work were completed at the degree-granting institution, additional official transcripts may be required at the discretion of the Graduate School.
- In addition to the official bachelor's degree-bearing transcript, submit copies of transcripts for all undergraduate work that was applied to the bachelor's degree, if that course work was not included in the degree-bearing transcripts. These transcripts may be unofficial copies and may be submitted by the applicant.
- Submit an official transcript showing completion of any master's or higher degrees.
- Submit official transcripts for any other graduate work completed, if the work is to be considered for transfer into the student's degree program. If official transcripts for previously completed graduate work are not provided at the time of application to the program, credit for that work cannot be transferred at a later date.
- Have official transcripts sent directly from the registrar's office at the institution where the work was completed to the School of Graduate Studies at UW-Whitewater. (Note: Transcripts from UW-Whitewater will be ordered by the Graduate School.) Transcripts faxed to UW-Whitewater or submitted personally by applicants will not be accepted. In the case of an institution in a foreign country that does not issue transcripts other than the single official copy presented to the student, a photocopy may be submitted provided that the applicant presents the official document for verification of authenticity at the Graduate Office upon arrival at UW-Whitewater.
- Submit all other credentials (e.g., test scores and letters of recommendation) required for admission to the particular program for which admission is being sought.
In Addition, International Students Must:
- Arrange for an official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score to be sent directly to the Graduate Office if English is not the native language. A TOEFL score of 550 is required.
- Send a completed certification of finances form to the Graduate Office to demonstrate that there is adequate financial support available during the planned period of study. Forms will be issued upon request by the Graduate Office.
- Have a former professor send a letter of recommendation directly to the Graduate Office attesting to the student's ability to pursue graduate study in the United States.
