If you've looked through all of the student information for applying to UW-Eau Claire and none of it seems to fit your situation, you've come to the right page. We have several options to explore the academics at UW-Eau Claire. If you look through all of the options and you still have questions, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help.
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 are considered a graduate special student if you earned a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution, are not currently seeking a degree, and want to take graduate coursework (500-level or higher). You must have a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution to take graduate coursework.
Because of the demand for some courses and limitations on enrollment, degree-seeking students will be given priority over special students. If the graduate enrollment period is open, graduate special students can register as soon as the online Payment Plan Agreement has been submitted. You can contact Blugold Central for additional questions at (715) 836-3000.
Some courses require permission to enroll from the department or an instructor. If a course you would like to take requires permission to enroll, please contact the department offering that course (not Registration or the Admission Offices).
Please contact the Advising, Retention and Career Center at email@example.com with any advising questions.
If you are looking to get ahead of the game and take college courses while still in high school, we have options for you:
Must be a junior or senior in the top 25% of the class OR in the top 50% of their class with an ACT composite of 24 or greater (SAT V+M of 1110 or greater).
If the student does not meet the above criteria, he/she may be considered on an exception basis if they are able to provide substantial and convincing letters of recommendation and/or data demonstrating high ability in a specific area of University study. For more information, contact the UW-Eau Claire Admissions Office.
