Transfer ViewPoint Day - Friday March 7, 2014
Are you thinking about transferring to UW-Stevens Point? If so, you're not alone. Each year, UWSP welcomes over 1,000 new transfer students...and you could be one of them! On Friday, March 7th, we will be hosting Transfer ViewPoint Day, which will include presentations on admissions, financial aid, student life and career services. Campus tours include a residence hall. Lunch (your only expense at $5.00 per lunch ticket), a student panel, and small-group discussions with professors round out your day on campus. Whether you have already applied to UWSP, have been admitted or are simply thinking about applying to UWSP, the Transfer ViewPoint Day is a great way to get your questions answered and to see if UWSP is the right fit for you. Parents and other family members are welcome!
