How to Apply: New Freshmen Inside the US

Are you ready?

Are you ready to take courses from internationally-recognized faculty who want to mentor undergraduate students? Are you ready to get out of the classroom and into internship and research experiences? Are you ready to belong to awesome campus community? Then you are ready to become a Phoenix. We want to help.

Here is your step-by-step guide to applying to UW-Green Bay. We are here to walk through this process with you.

Let's get started.

Step 1: Prepare to Apply

How does it work? Here is everything you need to know about applying to UW-Green Bay.

Students are required to submit ONE of the following tests:
Test IEP Admissions Full Admission Scores Must Be Sent From
TOEFL IBT 55 - 70 71 ETS
IELTS 4.0 - 5.5 6.0 Testing Center / British Council
ACT N/A 17 (English) ACT
SAT N/A 450 (Verbal) College Board
IGCSE N/A 5 Scores - C or Highter Cambridge, EDEXCEL, AQA
WESLI Recommendation N/A 700 Level (B or Better) WESLI
MTELP 69 - 72 73 - 75 ESL Center & Letter of Recommendation
  • International Students who do not meet the proficiency standards for undergraduate admission but are interested in academic study can enroll in UW-Green Bay's Intensive English Program (IEP). Students do not need to submit an English proficiency score to be eligible for the IEP. All students wishing to enter the IEP will take a placement test to determine eligibility. Students who do not meet minimum requirements for the IEP may be offered conditional admission through completion of an intensive English program through one of our partner institutions.
  • If you have completed four years of secondary school in the United States, you must submit either an ACT or SAT score.

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay requires certification of adequate financial support from all students with non-immigrant visas. A financial support statement and letter from the bank will be required of all students and/or sponsors. All fees are subject to change without notice. Fees are based on estimates and will be updated upon your arrival. All amounts are given in US dollars.

Expense Academic
Tuition and Fees $15,475
Housing $4,100
Meals $3,100
Books and Supplies $800
Personal Expenses $3,200
Health/Accident Insurance $1,430
Total $28,105

This is a relatively conservative budget for a student who plans carefully and is willing to share living quarters with another student. While some students may need less money, many students find that they spend more than this amount. This estimate does not include the cost of international travel and having an automobile. Students holding F-1 or J-1 visas may be eligible to work part-time on campus. Such positions cannot be guaranteed; therefore, applicants cannot depend on campus employment as a source of financial support.

Scholarships Are Available

The International Student Scholarship is available for all incoming international students.

Scholarships are awarded based on a student's academic achievements. In the university application essays, we encourage students to share information about their academic history, highlight academic awards and achievements, and discuss leadership and involvement in activities outside of the classroom. Scholarship awards range from $3,000 - $5,000 per year and will be renewed annually as long as students maintain a minimum GPA of 2.75.

There is no separate application to submit – scholarship recipients are notified of their awards when they are admitted to the university. Students must have an application to the university on file by the following deadlines in order to be eligible for the scholarship:

  • November 1 for the spring semester
  • June 1 for the fall semester

If you have any questions about the scholarship, please do not hesitate to contact the International Admissions Advisor.

YES.

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay provides two options for conditional admission:

Option 1

Students with intermediate-level English (TOEFL score of 55-70 or IELTS score of 4.0-5.5) are encouraged to apply for the UWGB Intensive English Program (IEP).

  • Students must apply to the university and the IEP at the same time.
  • Students do not need to submit an English proficiency score to be eligible for the IEP. All students wishing to enter the IEP will take a placement test to determine eligibility. Students who do not meet minimum requirements for the IEP may be offered conditional admission through completion of an intensive English program through one of our partner institutions.

Applying to the IEP. Find more information about the IEP. When you are ready to apply, you can access the IEP application.

  • The IEP application is free.
  • After you submit the application, you will be contacted by the Office of International Education. If you have not submitted an English test score, you will be provided with a code to take a free, online placement test. This test requires about 45-60 minutes to complete.

If you are accepted, your I-20 will be issued by UWGB for our Intensive English Program. After you complete the program, we will issue you a new I-20 for your academic program.

Option 2

Students with beginning-level English may be offered conditional admission through completion of an Intensive English Program at one of our partner institutions WESLI and St. Norbert College.

Students must apply to UWGB and our partner institution at the same time.

Your I-20 will be issued by our partner program. UWGB will send you a letter confirming your conditional admission. When you complete your English program and transfer to UW-Green bay for your academic program, UW-Green Bay will issue you a new I-20.

A financial support statement and letter from the bank will be required of all students and/or sponsors. All fees are subject to change without notice. Fees are based on estimates and will be updated upon your arrival. All amounts are given in US dollars.

Expense Academic
Tuition and Fees $15,475
Housing $4,100
Meals $3,100
Books and Supplies $800
Personal Expenses $3,200
Health/Accident Insurance $1,430
Total $28,105

This is a relatively conservative budget for a student who plans carefully and is willing to share living quarters with another student. While some students may need less money, many students find that they spend more than this amount. This estimate does not include the cost of international travel and having an automobile. Students holding F-1 or J-1 visas may be eligible to work part-time on campus. Such positions cannot be guaranteed; therefore, applicants cannot depend on campus employment as a source of financial support.

Scholarships Are Available

The International Student Scholarship is available for all incoming international students.

Scholarships are awarded based on a student's academic achievements. In the university application essays, we encourage students to share information about their academic history, highlight academic awards and achievements, and discuss leadership and involvement in activities outside of the classroom. Scholarship awards range from $3,000 - $5,000 per year and will be renewed annually as long as students maintain a minimum GPA of 2.75.

There is no separate application to submit – scholarship recipients are notified of their awards when they are admitted to the university. Students must have an application to the university on file by the following deadlines in order to be eligible for the scholarship:

  • November 1 for the spring semester
  • June 1 for the fall semester

If you have any questions about the scholarship, please do not hesitate to contact the International Admissions Advisor.

YES.

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay provides two options for conditional admission:

Option 1

Students with intermediate-level English (TOEFL score of 55-70 or IELTS score of 4.0-5.5) are encouraged to apply for the UWGB Intensive English Program (IEP).

  • Students must apply to the university and the IEP at the same time.
  • Students do not need to submit an English proficiency score to be eligible for the IEP. All students wishing to enter the IEP will take a placement test to determine eligibility. Students who do not meet minimum requirements for the IEP may be offered conditional admission through completion of an intensive English program through one of our partner institutions.

Applying to the IEP. Find more information about the IEP. When you are ready to apply, you can access the IEP application.

  • The IEP application is free.
  • After you submit the application, you will be contacted by the Office of International Education. If you have not submitted an English test score, you will be provided with a code to take a free, online placement test. This test requires about 45-60 minutes to complete.

If you are accepted, your I-20 will be issued by UWGB for our Intensive English Program. After you complete the program, we will issue you a new I-20 for your academic program.

Option 2

Students with beginning-level English may be offered conditional admission through completion of an Intensive English Program at one of our partner institutions WESLI and St. Norbert College.

Students must apply to UWGB and our partner institution at the same time.

Your I-20 will be issued by our partner program. UW-Green Bay will send you a letter confirming your conditional admission. When you complete your English program and transfer to UWGB for your academic program, UWGB will issue you a new I-20.

Three Potential Admission Decisions

  1. One possibility is that you will be admitted. Yippee! You will get a thick envelope in the mail containing a lot of information, including your UWGB email address and instructions for your next steps. You can find more details on the Admitted Students page.
  2. Another possibility is that you will be offered conditional admission. If you are eligible for conditional admission, our advisors will contact you during the application process. You will need to complete a language program through the UWGB Intensive English Program or one of our partner institutions before starting your academic program at UWGB. See more information about conditional admission in Step 1.
  3. The third possibility is that admission might be denied. If you want to submit additional information that you think we did not take into consideration during our decision, feel free to do so. We call this an “appeal” of the decision. If admission is denied, our advisors would like to discuss your options for continuing your education. For example, you may be interested in starting your college work elsewhere with the intention of transferring to UW-Green Bay. Please contact us and we will be happy to help you work out a strategy for starting your college career and ultimately becoming a UW-Green Bay student.
