We want to make sure your application goes smoothly. The following steps will guide you through the process. If you have a question, call an enrollment adviser at 1-877-895-3276 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be happy to help!
Sending us your application materials no later than one month before courses begin ensures the smoothest admission and enrollment process. We may accommodate late applications that are complete up to a week before the semester start. Additionally, we will accept applications up to the first day of the semester, however, admission and enrollment in the program at this point may prove difficult for ensuring a smooth transition into your courses with no guarantees that you will be able to enroll in courses that same semester.
Starting your application early will help 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.
See our Course Schedule page for course start dates.
Admission to the UW Master of Science in Sustainable Management program requires:

- Your resume.
- Two letters of recommendation (can be professional or academic).
- A personal statement of up to 1,000 words describing the reasons behind your decision to pursue this degree, your short- and long-term career goals, and the value you believe you will add to the learning experience of your fellow students. Space for the personal statement is included in the online application.
How to Apply
While you are free to apply on your own, many prospective students find great value in speaking with an enrollment adviser first. Our staff is here to answer your questions, talk with you about your career goals, and help you ensure that this program is a good choice for you.
Step 2. Apply to your preferred home campus using the University of Wisconsin System Online Admission Application. A nonrefundable $56 application fee is required for most graduate degree-seeking students applying to a UW System institution.
Step 3. Send your resume and letters of recommendation, and arrange to have your official college transcripts (from each institution you attended), sent to the graduate student admissions office of the campus to which you applied.
Formal admission to the program is determined by the campus to which you apply.
