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!
All application materials need to be completed two weeks prior to the semester start to be considered for admission.
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.
- A bachelor’s degree in any discipline from a regionally or nationally accredited university and a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0. Students with a GPA less than 3.0 may be considered for provisional admission and should contact an enrollment adviser for more information.
- 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 it helpful to speak with an enrollment adviser first. Our friendly staff is here to answer your questions, talk with you about your career goals, and help you decide if 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, personal statement, 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 home campus to which you applied.
Formal admission to the program is determined by the campus to which you apply.
Financial Aid Options
Financial aid is available to students who qualify. See our Tuition and Financial Aid page for details.
Choosing a “Home” Campus
Although you will take courses taught by faculty from all UW Sustainable Management master’s program partner campuses and complete your program entirely online, you will be asked to choose a “home” campus from the degree-granting institutions listed above. Your home campus is the institution from which you will receive financial aid (if you qualify), advising, career services, and your diploma. Admission and graduation requirements do not vary across the UW System partner institutions, so your choice of a home campus is a matter of personal preference unless you live near one of these institutions and wish to meet face-to-face with campus staff once you become an enrolled student.
A Multi-campus Collaboration
The UW Sustainable Management master’s program is a partnership of UW Extended Campus and five University of Wisconsin degree-granting institutions: UW-Green Bay, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Parkside, UW-Stout, and UW-Superior. This partnership allows us to bring you a truly multi-disciplinary curriculum taught by knowledgeable and experienced faculty from across the UW System. This is an online program, but your degree and transcripts will be identical to those earned by on-campus students.
