Anyone who desires a university education will be considered for admission to the University of Wisconsin Colleges. Prospective students should apply early. Certain applicants who meet the minimum admission requirements (e.g., those who rank in the bottom quarter of their high school graduating class, or hold a certificate of GED) may have their admission deferred to a future term.
To be admitted to UW-Barron County as a new freshman, a student must:
The remaining four credits will be from the above areas, foreign languages, fine arts, computer science, or other academic areas.
If you are admitted and your high school record, placement test scores, or other previous academic performance indicates that you may have difficulty with university work, you will be required to participate in special programs aimed at preparing you to succeed at university coursework. See the UW Colleges policy on high risk students for more information.
Students who fail to meet these requirements may appeal to the Assistant Dean for Student Services for an exemption. Particular consideration will be given to applicants on the basis of minority group status, physical or learning disability, U.S. Armed Forces veteran status, age group, incarceration, or economic or educational disadvantage. Applicants who have special needs should contact the campus Student Services Office.
