Giving back to your university creates meaningful experiences for the next generation of UW-Parkside students. As an alum, this is your chance to help a student you know find a great fit as a new Ranger at UW-Parkside. 

UWP Foundation Word Mark

Do you know a graduating high school senior or a transfer student who should be part of the

UW-Parkside family? 

Our alumni referral program, Ranger Recruiter, allows alumni to nominate a prospective student for undergraduate admission to UW-Parkside, and the nominated student will not need to pay the application fee. Thanks to a generous gift to UW-Parkside from the UW-Parkside Foundation, the application fee will be covered so that the student you recommend doesn't have to cover that cost.


Complete the nomination form. 

The first 200 Ranger Recruiter students nominated by Parkside alumni will have their application fee paid thanks to the gift from the UW-Parkside Foundation.

Apply to Parkside.

The student nominee must apply for full time admission to Parkside and complete the full application process. Students must meet all admission requirements and are not automatically guaranteed admission to UW-Parkside.

Great work! 

More than 200 future Rangers have had their application fees paid thanks to Ranger Recruiter alumni referrals and the support of the UW-Parkside Foundation. Check back for updates on when this program will open again.


We look forward to getting your nominations. In the meantime, if you need more info about Ranger Recruiter, please contact the Admissions Office.  |  262-595-2355
