Two-Year College
Entrance Requirements

Students may start their education at a two-year college and then transfer to a four-year college to earn a bachelor’s degree. After fulfilling certain credit and grade point average requirements, students that participate in the Guaranteed Transfer Program are guaranteed admission into the UW university of their choice. The Guaranteed Transfer Program guarantees admission to the baccalaureate institution only and not to the specific program or major.

Two-year colleges are different than technical schools. In Wisconsin the two-year colleges belong to the UW System. UW-Barron County is an example of a two-year college. Entrance requirements include:

  1. Have graduated from a recognized high school, have a GED, or present other evidence of ability to begin university work.
  2. Have a minimum of 17 college preparatory credits, distributed as follows:
    • English - 4 credits
    • Social Studies - 3 credits
    • Natural Science - 3 credits
    • Mathematics - 3 credits (must include at least one credit of algebra and the equivalent of one credit of geometry
    • The remaining four credits will be from the above areas, world languages, fine arts, computer science or other academic areas.
  3. Submit an ACT or SAT score. ACT or SAT score must be received before you will be permitted to register for classes.

If you are admitted and your high school record, placement test scores, or other previous academic performance indicates that you may have difficulty with university work, you will be required to participate in special programs aimed at preparing you to succeed in university-level coursework. Please note that some of these courses may not count toward your college degree.
