To be eligible for the Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Management students must meet the following requirements:
- Associate degree or approximately 45-60 transferable general education credits* with a 2.0 minimum grade point average (GPA).
- Prerequisite coursework: college math, introductory biology, statistics, and speech/introduction to communications; UW campus equivalents or other college/university equivalents may be substituted.
You will also need to submit the following application materials:
- Official college transcripts.
*If you do not meet this general education requirement, or have less than 45-60 credits, there are options available to you, such as taking them through your chosen home campus or through one of these associate degrees. Please contact an enrollment adviser for more information.
This program welcomes online students from around the world. Online students do not qualify for an F-1 Student Visa to travel to the U.S., but instead can participate in our online courses remotely. If your native language is not English and/or you attended school outside of the U.S., you will likely need to provide proof of English language proficiency and an official translation or evaluation of academic transcripts. Requirements will vary based on a student’s academic history and home campus policies. For guidance about these requirements and how they apply to your specific situation, contact your preferred home campus admissions office.
If you would like to apply as an International Student for an on-campus program in the UW System please refer to these resources through UW-HELP.
All application materials need to be completed two weeks prior to the semester start to be considered for admission.
Starting your application early will ensure you have plenty of time to gather required materials (such as transcripts), transfer credits, apply for financial aid, and complete the University of Wisconsin System Online Admission Application.
Due to COVID-19, many institutions have transitioned to remote operations. When ordering transcripts, it is recommended to order e-transcripts only, as physical (mailed) copies may not be available in a timely manner.
How to Apply
While you are free to apply on your own, many prospective students find it helpful to speak with an enrollment adviser first.
Step 2. Apply to your preferred home campus using the University of Wisconsin System Online Admission Application. There is no application fee for undergraduate degree-seeking applicants (domestic and international).
Step 3. Send official college transcripts* from all institutions attended directly to the home campus admissions office to which you are applying. If you have an associate degree, bachelor’s degree, or equivalent coursework, the ACT or SAT is not required.
*Please request electronic transcripts if this service is offered by your previous school(s). Have the e-transcript sent from your previous school directly to the admissions e-mail address of your chosen home campus. E-transcripts are usually delivered more quickly than physical copies sent by mail.
Financial Aid Options
Financial aid is available to students who qualify. Scholarships are offered every fall and spring semester for new and current students.
Choosing a Home Campus
When you apply, you will need to choose a home campus. Your home campus is the institution from which you will receive financial aid, advising, career services, and your diploma.
Your choice of home campus is a matter of personal preference. Our campus partners share equal responsibility in the program, and you will take courses taught by faculty from all program partner campuses. As a student you will complete your degree or certificate entirely online. Your educational experience will be the same regardless of your campus choice, and your degree and transcripts will be identical to those earned by on-campus students.
