Admission Requirements

AdmissionsThe first step is to apply for graduate study at UW-Stevens Point by submitting a UWSP Graduate Student Application, application fee, and official transcripts to the Graduate Admissions Office.

The Office of Admissions at UWSP will send a copy of your application and official transcripts to HPHD. Upon receipt of these materials, the department will look for evidence of an undergraduate grade point average of 2.75 or above (based on a 4.0 scale). Probationary status may be granted for students with an undergraduate GPA below 2.75.

The School of Health Promotion & Human Development does not conditionally admit international students for graduate study. International students should contact the International Students & Scholars Office (ISSO) to apply for non-conditional graduate admission.

The second step is to complete the following for submission to the School of Health Promotion & Human Development (HPHD):

  1. A letter of intent detailing your background qualifications, professional development, educational and career goals, and how this program fits into your future professional plans. Please provide specific examples.
  2. A current resume or curriculum vitae detailing your professional post-baccalaureate work experience.
  3. GRE (Graduate Record Exam) scores for the Revised General Test. Please note that there is no minimum score that determines admission consideration. Request that official GRE scores be sent to UWSP.

When submitting GRE scores:

  • If applying to the Community & Organizational Leadership program, use department name "Family & Consumer Sciences" and major name "Human Development."
  • If applying to the Sustainable and Resilient Food Systems program, use department name "Family & Consumer Sciences" and major name "Foods, Nutrition, & Wellness Studies."
