Most importantly, we encourage you to reach out to an advisor. Our advisors are specifically trained to work with online, transfer and returning adult students and can assist you in navigating the admissions process for your particular circumstances.
We are also happy to provide some general admission information and hints below.
If you have earned at least 15 transferrable credits, you will be reviewed as a transfer student. During your review process, we will need official copies of your transcripts from all institutions (colleges, universities, technical colleges, community colleges) you have attended.
If you have earned fewer than 15 transferrable credits, you will be reviewed as a new freshman student. During your review process, we will need to review your official high school transcripts and official ACT/SAT scores. (If you graduated from high school more than five years ago, providing ACT/SAT scores is not required.)
If you previously attended UW-Green Bay (and haven't attended anywhere since UW-Green Bay), you will be reviewed as a re-entry student. During your review process, we will need to review your past academic performance in classes at UW-Green Bay.
