UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Students earn college credit while attending high school by taking Advanced Placement (AP) Exams, International Baccalaureate (IB) and through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). Students may also take college courses through the Wisconsin Early College Credit Program (ECCP). Find out how to earn college credit while in high school.
High school students may also apply as an undergraduate special student for a variety of reasons including taking classes for personal enrichment or adding an additional major/minor. Find out how to apply as a special student.
You can also take classes without committing to a degree program. Some students want to develop new professional skills. Others take classes in the summer to transfer to another institution. Either way, UW-River Falls provides a way for you to temporarily enroll as a UWRF graduate or undergraduate student.
As a temporary graduate or undergraduate student, you may enroll in courses without being admitted into a degree or certificate program at UW-River Falls. You will need a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution to take graduate-level courses. The application fee is waived.
In the application, indicate that your reason for applying is to take courses for personal or professional enrichment.
If you decide to pursue a degree or certificate in the future, you will need to notify us in writing and meet any additional admission requirements, including payment of the application fee.
Once admitted, students will receive their student account number (Falcon Account) and instructions on how to register for classes. Please allow adequate time for your application to be processed before the start of your class.
All new students must sign a Fee Payment Agreement prior to registering for the first term of classes. Find out more.
