Admissions and Costs
International Program Admission Information
The admission requirements for students who are not residents of the United States vary from those outlined in the UW Colleges catalog for U.S. residents. International applicants are admitted on the basis of their academic preparation, their ability to effectively understand and use the English language and the determination by the international admissions office that their educational and career goals may be furthered by attendance at a UW Colleges campus.
To be admitted to the program international students must have:
Completion of the UW-Stevens Point English as a Second Language Program (conditional admission).
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. Official IELTS results should be sent directly to the UW-Stevens Point Admissions Office.
See the full list of admission requirements.
Priority international application deadlines are June 1 (for fall semester) and November 1 (for spring semester). Applications received after these dates will be reviewed individually but may need to be deferred until a later semester.
Our international students enjoy the comforts of staying in our apartment style housing, called The Villas. In each apartment, you will live with four people. You have your own, large room and will share a bathroom with one other person. The kitchen and living area are shared with all four people. In addition to spacious apartment, The Villas offer other great amenities. The clubhouse in the first floor of The Villas offers ping-pong, pool, a weight/workout room and laundry facilities.
Adjusting to life in a new town, a new college and with new people can be a challenge! This is especially true if you are coming from another country.
