The UW-Barron County realignment with UW-Eau Claire is not affecting the application process or admissions requirements for prospective students of either institution for the fall of 2018. If things do change, we will communicate those changes here as soon as we possibly can! Please see this page for more information as the realignment process moves ahead.

You have a story - we want to hear it

It’s fall, and for many admissions staff that means applications to review. But for me and for our review team, it means more. It means getting to know each of you who apply—your ambitions, your goals, how you want to change the world—and I imagine all the amazing things you’ll do as a Blugold.


Postponed decisions

Applicants who apply prior to February 1 and meet college preparatory credit requirements may have an admission decision postponed. Those with postponed applications will be considered on a space-available basis and will be notified of a final decision no later than March 15 .
