Ready to Start?

Contact an Admission Counselor to learn more about the pathway and application process. 

To apply, submit a Graduate Student Application and detail your career and academic goals in the essay box.  Also, have your advisor complete an advisor recommendation form. Upon conditional admission to a graduate program, junior and senior standing students can enroll in one 3 credit graduate course along with 12 credits of undergraduate courses in a given semester. 

Upon graduation from the Bachelor’s degree program and completing the rest of the graduate admission steps, students will be fully admitted to the graduate program of their choosing at UW-Platteville.  Graduate programs can be completed in one academic year at full-time status, or students can choose a more flexible pathway that allows them to work while completing their Master’s degree. Most students with part-time status complete their degrees in two years.    


At time of entrance, you must:

  • have completed 60 credits
  • have declared a major at UW-Platteville
  • have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
  • have a major GPA of 3.0 or higher
