Graduate Programs and Contacts
What is the cost of graduate study?
How to Apply
- International students should contact the International Students and Scholars Office at 715-346-3849 for graduate application materials.
- To apply for admission to graduate study at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, please submit the following:
Successful admission to graduate study requires admission to a
specific graduate degree program. A copy of your completed application,
as well as a copy of each of your transcripts, will be sent to the
program coordinator of the graduate program you have chosen. Many of our
graduate degree programs require additional materials such as letters
of reference, personal interviews, standardized test scores,
verification of certification, etc. The graduate program coordinator
will contact you for any additional material needed to determine your
acceptability to the program.
- A completed graduate application. List all
colleges and/or universities you have attended. You may obtain a
graduate application by calling the UW-Stevens Point Admissions Office
at 715-346-2441, by writing the Admissions Office at 102 Student
Services Center, Stevens Point, WI 54481, or by filling out the
information request form. You may also apply by using the UW System
electronic graduate application at https://apply.wisconsin.edu/ or you may download and print the graduate application here.
- $56 graduate application fee. Wisconsin statutes
require that the application fee accompany your application for
admission. The fee is nonrefundable, and your application will not be
processed until the application fee has been received. Checks or money
orders should be made payable to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens
Point. If you are applying electronically you can pay with a credit card
when you submit your application.
- Official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended (both undergraduate and graduate).
Arrange to have official transcripts from each institution you attended
sent directly to the Admissions Office. If you attended UW-Stevens Point as an
admitted student in the past, you do not need to request your UW-Stevens Point
transcripts from us. We will request UW-Stevens Point transcripts on your behalf. The transcript from the college from which you graduated must indicate
that you earned a bachelor's degree. Transcripts from each institution
are required before your application can be processed. (Please note: We
do accept electronic transcripts sent through Docufide and
Special/Nondegree Graduate Students
If you wish to take graduate courses but do not want to pursue a
master's degree at UW-Stevens Point, you may register as a graduate
special. You must hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited
institution in order to attend as a graduate special. You do not need to
complete a formal application process. You will be granted graduate
special status when you register for classes.
As a graduate special student you may enroll in graduate-level
courses and receive graduate credit for teacher certification
requirements or for personal enrichment. A maximum of 9 credits can
apply toward a master's degree provided they are approved by your
advisor and fit within the seven-year time period required for
completion of the degree. If you decide to pursue a master's degree, it
is in your best interest to change your status to graduate regular as
soon as possible.
