Admissions

The UWGB Admissions Office offers helpful resources for freshmen. There are specific admission requirements for freshmen and transfer students that want to apply at the university. You can also apply using your computer by filling out an electronic application. The Undergraduate Catalog will provide information about academic programs, facilities, services, and campus life at the university.

Also, be sure to visit the Academic Advising office if you have any questions regarding general education requirements, University procedures/policies, and registration help. Freshman and sophomore students are highly recommended to talk with their academic adviser(s) often. It's not a bad idea to pick a faculty adviser early in your college career also to meet the individual and discuss your future goals and career options.

Professor Coryl Crandall taught in the Humanistic Studies and Languages and Literatures Programs at UWGB from 1968 until his untimely death in 1978. Professor Crandall served as Assistant Dean of the College of Creative Communication, the purpose of which was to examine the problem of human identity and the individual’s impact on the environment. His primary academic interest was in Renaissance and Restoration English drama, but his interests were wide-ranging and included contemporary drama and world theatre as well. His first love, however, was acting. In his youth, he had participated in the avant-garde productions of Harry Partch, and he was very active as both actor and director in student theater, community theater, and educational television, including such productions as Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Lion in Winter, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. An inspiring teacher and mentor, Coryl Crandall helped define the character of the Humanities and the Arts at UWGB.

  • At the time of application or nomination, the student must have at least sophomore standing and be seeking support for full-time undergraduate study at UWGB.
  • The student must be a declared major or minor in Arts and Visual Design, Humanistic Studies, one of their disciplinary majors, or a related personal major.
  • The student must show promise of distinguished academic achievement
  • Coryl Crandall’s work was identified with the college more than with a single program. Moreover, his commitment was especially to students who can reach across traditional academic disciplines and rise above the limitations of the classroom. Therefore, the student should have a record of well-rounded achievement and potential, and be undertaking academic work that involves contributions to the student’s immediate community within the university or the wider community of northeastern Wisconsin or beyond.
  • Previous winners of Crandall or Daniels cash awards are not eligible to win a further cash award although they can apply and receive Finalist recognition. Applicants are encouraged to apply for both scholarships if they are eligible, but will only receive a cash award for one.
