Admission With Support



We welcome all students to apply and will consider each student based on their individual academic achievement. Be sure and submit your application and one-time nonrefundable $40 application fee, official high school transcripts sent directly from your school, and official ACT or SAT test scores for admission consideration.

**Test scores are not required for admission for the 2021-22 academic year**


Admission with support is available to you if you are a high school senior or graduate and satisfy the following
  • A cumulative, unweighted high school GPA of:
    • 2.5 - 2.99
    • 2.25 - 2.49 will be reviewed holistically and may require an essay
  • Completion of the success curriculum with no more than two deficiencies. Both deficiencies cannot occur in the same curriculum category.

To foster academic success, students admitted with support participate in UW's nationally recognized Bridge program or other academic transition programs. Visit for additional details.

  • Be admitted and registered in the Bridge Program by July 15th before the fall classes begin
