Admissions & Scholarships


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 advisor(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.
