University of Wisconsin Stevens Point

Stevens Point, Wisconsin

SAT/ACT mins: 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.  The ACT or SAT is required of all new freshman applicants under age 21. While we prefer the ACT, there is not an advantage in submitting one test rather than the other. We do not require the ACT writing test.  Primary emphasis is placed on academic factors, including the following: class rank, test scores - ACT or SAT, cumulative high school grade point average (GPA), rigor of high school courses, and trend in grades in academic courses over time.  The middle 50% ACT range of our accepted applicants is 21-26.  The middle 50% range for high school GPA is 3.20-3.75.  Most of our accepted applicants rank in the upper 40% of their high school class.

SAT or ACT Scores must not be more than:  N/A.

LSP Application deadline: UWSP does not have a specific application deadline.  We would prefer to have LSP applicant packages by October 1 for the spring semester and March 1 for the fall semester.

Where to find application: The University of Wisconsin has an application website – – through which students can download the application for admission.

Freshmen class report date: Early September for Fall and late January for Spring.

Yellow Ribbon participant: Not at this time, but our participation in the program will be re-evaluated for the next biennium.

Will you cover difference between tuition minus GI Bill and cost of in state "state" school tuition? Or do you want to keep it to in-state residents? We want to keep it to in-state residents, but will make every effort to make a UWSP education affordable to LSP applicants. Tuition, fees and books for a Wisconsin resident are approximately $7,546 for the 2013-14 academic year.  Wisconsin has tuition reciprocity with Minnesota.  Residents of Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska or North Dakota are also be eligible for tuition reduction through the Midwest Student Exchange Program.

Do you want to donate additional money to each applicant should the need arise?   No.

Processing fees: $44.

All majors open to Marines? Yes.

Recognize AA degree or any college course work: Yes; we grant credit for comparable course work at many other accredited institutions.  These courses will be transferred on a course-by-course basis.

Recognize awarding of college credits via alternative means, e.g., DANTES or CLEP: No DANTES credit; CLEP credit varies.
