- Admission Guidelines
For many programs, new freshmen are likely to be admitted if they have appropriate high school preparation, rank in the top 50% of their class, or have an ACT composite score of at least 21 (or 980 SAT). However, Architecture, Engineering, Health Sciences, and Nursing require stronger academic preparation. Students applying to one of these programs will be required to select an additional alternate major (this alternate can’t be one of the selective majors listed here). In addition to academic preparation, factors like leadership, motivation, and maturity, as addressed in your personal statement and/or recommendations, are reviewed and considered. UWM provides broad access to individuals and encourages all interested students to apply. All freshman applicants under age 21 must submit ACT/SAT scores. Test scores posted on a high school transcript are accepted as official.
