Re-Entry Students

There are two types of re-entry students: Regular re-entry students are those who have completed no transferable credits from any postsecondary institution since they last attended UW-Stout. Transfer reentry students are those who have completed transferable credits at a post-secondary institution since they last attended UW-Stout.

To be considered for Fall 2014, the UW System E-app may be submitted through midnight on Monday August 25th for regular re-entry students and through midnight on Monday, August 18th for transfer re-entry students.  Supporting documents for transfer re-entry students must be received by Monday, August 25th.


Regular re-entry students

  1. You need to complete the UW System Application for Admission (online form is strongly recommended, or our Re-Entry/Special Application [PDF]). If you left the university in good standing, you may be readmitted as enrollment management goals allow.

  2. If you left on academic probation, you may be readmitted on academic probation, if there is room for you in your chosen program.

  3. The director of Admissions or a designee will review applications from re-entry students who were academically dismissed from the university. If the application for readmission is denied, the decision may be appealed to the Dean of Students Office.

Transfer re-entry students

You must submit official transcripts from each institution you attended, as well as a completed UW System Application for Admission (online form is strongly recommended, or our Re-Entry/Special Application [PDF]). If you left the university in good standing or on probation, you will be readmitted in the same status, provided you are eligible to return to the institution you last attended, and provided enrollment management goals have not been reached.

  1. If you left UW-Stout because of academic dismissal, you may be readmitted on probation. Decisions will be made on a case by case basis at the discretion of the director of admissions and considering enrollment targets. Students are required to submit a letter of appeal.

  2. If your transfer grade point average is less than 2.20, you will be denied readmittance to UW-Stout. Denial decisions may be appealed to the Dean of Students Office.
