We understand that life takes some turns and sometimes you need to step away. If you previously attended UW-Parkside, but have not been enrolled for at least the last semester, you need to reapply to Parkside. We are excited that you are ready to come back and continue working towards your education and career goals.
Are you still thinking about it, but have some questions?
Evaluate your Transfer Credit
Have you taken classes since leaving UW-Parkside, and want to know how they will transfer to us? You can use Transferology to see if we have a course equivalency already established, or email your unofficial transcripts to an admission counselor and request an unofficial transcript evaluation. We can provide this to you before you take any additional steps.
Are you ready to apply?
Submit the UW System Application. If you used the online application previously, make sure to access your old account, as this will save you time and help Admissions link your previous record to the new application.
Students who previously took courses at UW-Parkside are not charged a fee to re-apply.
Submit updated academic history (including final grades and transcripts from other institutions attended since leaving Parkside).*
* Students applying for re-entry must submit official transcripts from all institutions of higher education attended after their original departure from UW-Parkside.
Applicants who have been dropped for academic reasons from another institution since last attending UW-Parkside are not eligible to return to the university until that hold is resolved. Under extraordinary circumstances the Admissions Office will consider appeals.
Re-activate your Ranger Mail and SOLAR accounts.
