Class of 2025 and beyond, we have a message for you!

The Direct Admit Wisconsin program will launch in 2024 for the class of 2025. UW-Parkside will proactively admit Wisconsin high school students, who have opted in, based on their high school GPA, academic course work, and graduate from a participating Wisconsin high school. Our goal is to open the program to all Wisconsin high schools in the upcoming years.


The Wisconsin Guarantee

Welcome to the Wisconsin Guarantee program, where we're excited to offer guaranteed admission to all Universities of Wisconsin (UW) institutions for those who meet certain criteria. If you're a first-year applicant from a Wisconsin high school and you find yourself in the top 10% of your class by the end of 11th grade, or if you're a Wisconsin resident who is homeschooled and achieves an ACT score in the national 90th percentile ranking or higher, or you're a National Merit Scholarship finalist, you can rest assured knowing you have guaranteed admission to UW-Parkside.
