Humanistic Studies

h1>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.

Guidelines for the Coryl Crandall Memorial Scholarship

  • At the time of application or nomination, a student must have at least sophomore standing and be seeking support for full-time undergraduate study at UW-Green Bay.
  • A student must be a declared major or minor in  Humanistic Studies one of its disciplinary majors, or a related personal major.
  • A student must show promise of distinguished academic achievement.
  • A 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.

These guidelines are deliberately broad. 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. Broad guidelines will allow us to identify students whose breadth of reach might not easily be measured by a set of tight conventional rules.
