Choosing the college or university that's right for you isn't easy — we know. You're considering academic programs and professors, costs and campus locations, student organizations and athletics. And on top of it all, you're wondering what the school will expect from you. It's one of the most important decisions you'll make. 

Being accepted to Parkside is an invitation to make your decision one of your most fulfilling ones. As the most diverse school in the University of Wisconsin system, we're proud to provide truly personal education for students from a variety of social and cultural backgrounds. But personalized, one-on-one interaction with professors and small class sizes are just part of our promise to help you reach your goals.

Our degree programs are tailored to prepare you to meet the needs of tomorrow's employers. New university investments in the arts, theater, and the humanities are also investments in your future. And student organizations, Greek life, athletics, and opportunities to study abroad add balance and depth to your academic pursuits.

Parkside completes a comprehensive review with each application we receive. Both academic and nonacademic factors that are presented in an application are used to make an admission decision. Academic factors include academic rigor, GPA, class rank, and standardized test scores. Nonacademic factors include, but are not limited to, leadership, community service, special talent and ability, and personal characteristics that contribute to the strengths and diversity of the university. The most competitive candidates for admission present positive factors in their application that are both academic and nonacademic. If you have been denied admission and wish to learn about the appeal process, please contact the Admissions Office.
