Applying as a New Student

Applying for Admission

To apply for admission, you will need to send the following:

1. Application: You must complete the UW System application for undergraduate admission. We encourage you to apply onlinelink when possible.

2. Transcripts: Ask your guidance counselor to mail an official copy of your high school transcript and your most recent grade report.

3. ACT Scores: Your ACT scores should also be sent to the Admissions Office. If you did not request that your scores be sent directly from ACT, we will accept student copies, counselor copies, or scores stamped on your high school transcript.

NOTE: River Falls does NOT require the writing portion of the ACT.

4. Application fee: A non-refundable fee of $44 is required if you are applying as a degree-seeking student to a UW System institution. The fee can be paid by credit card at the time you submit your application or you can mail a check.
