The number one reason admission decisions are delayed is due to incomplete application forms. Please help us to help you by making sure you answer all questions on the application.

Admission to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is competitive. All applications are reviewed on an individual basis, with both academic and non-academic factors considered. Applicants with strong academic backgrounds who have also demonstrated achievement outside the classroom hold the most appeal.

As we consider your application primary emphasis is placed on academic factors, including the following:

  • Class rank
  • Cumulative high school grade point average (GPA) or equivalent
  • Rigor of high school courses
  • Trend in grades in academic courses over time

Applicants must provide original copies of academic records from each high school, college, and/or university attended whether or not a degree, certificate or diploma was earned.

Applicants whose primary language is not English must satisfy our English language proficiency requirement in one of the following ways:

  • TOEFL iBT: Score of 78 and above, with minimum scores of 17 in the Speaking and Writing sections.
    • UW-Stevens Point code is 1919.
  • IELTS: Score of 6.0 or above, with no sub-score below 5.5.
  • PTE: Score of 52 or above.
  • SAT: Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section score of 530 or above.
  • ACT: English and Reading section scores of 22 or above.

English proficiency scores must be less than two years old in order to be considered valid. Scanned copies, photocopies and web results are not accepted.

English may be considered your primary language if you have been raised in an environment where English is the official language of your locality and nation, English has been the primary language used in your home and English was the only language of instruction for all classes in all years of secondary school.

Note for non-native English speaking students transferring from U.S. schools: you must present an English language proficiency test score unless you have completed 2 semesters (or the equivalent) of university-level coursework at a U.S. institution.

In addition to academic achievement, the following non-academic factors are considered as we review your application:

  • Demonstrated leadership;
  • Involvement through work experience, extracurricular activities, and volunteerism;
  • Personal characteristics and accomplishments including special talents and abilities, honors, awards and personal qualities;
  • Diversity in background, experience; and life circumstances.

While non-academic factors are considered, they will not necessarily make an applicant with a weak academic background a strong candidate for admission.

Your personal statement (no less  than 200 words and up to 500 maximum) should include information regarding your academic performance and co-curricular involvements during secondary school (high school) as well as comments indicative of your plans for study and co-curricular involvements while at UWSP.

Friendly advice: Your personal statement is the place to show us what you know! Be certain to explain why UW-Stevens Point is a good fit based upon your learning goals and aspirations.

Your passport scan or photocopy will serve as the basis for your U.S. immigration documents. Your university records will also be keyed to your name as indicated in your passport.


Current estimated expenses

U.S. immigration regulations require prospective international students to produce evidence of their ability to meet all financial obligations while studying in the United States.

The application fee can be paid on page 5 of the application form.

Alternatively, you may submit a bank check drawn on U.S. Dollars and made payable to “UW-Stevens Point” along with the other items you will mail to us.

  • Application Form
