International Student Admission
UW-Green Bay annually enrolls students from about 30 countries and actively seeks the cultural diversification that international students contribute to the campus.
Admission for international students is based upon scholastic achievement and ability to use the English language. Note: Proof of ability to finance a UW-Green Bay education is also expected as part of the admission process for the purpose of issuing the necessary Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20).
An international student must have a recognized certificate of completion from a secondary school and provide transcripts for all high school work. Transcripts will also be required from all post-secondary schools attended, if any. Since all UW-Green Bay coursework is conducted in English, each international applicant must provide evidence of English proficiency. For further information about meeting the English proficiency requirements at UW-Green Bay, go to www.uwgb.edu/admissions/international and click on “Admissions Guidelines.”
International students must be prepared to finance their educations. A limited number of partial tuition remission scholarships exist. Because of the difficulty in gaining permission from the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service to work off campus, international students should not anticipate financing an education by income from employment. Limited on-campus work opportunities are available.
The Office of International Education at UW-Green Bay will issue the necessary Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20) to admitted students.
Further information about international student admission is available at www.uwgb.edu/admissions/international/.
A student who has been denied admission may appeal that decision by letter to the director of Admissions. An appeal committee meets as needed each semester. Students may contact the Office of Admissions for additional information.
