Undergraduate Admission

How to Apply

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

1. Application: You must complete the UW System application for undergraduate admission. Our application is new and improved, meaning it should only take you 15 minutes or less!

2. Transcripts: Submit a copy of your high school transcript. We accept student copies and counselor copies sent via email, paper mail, or electronic transcript service. We prefer that transcripts are sent electronically, when possible. If not, hard copy transcripts may be sent to UW-River Falls Admissions at 410 S. 3rd St., River Falls, WI 54022.

If you were hoping to boost your GPA or class rank prior to applying for admission, please complete your application now. If you have concerns about your high school record and would like to connect with an Admissions Counselor, please reach out.

3. Application fee: A non-refundable fee of $25 is required if you are applying as a degree-seeking student to a UW System institution unless you qualify for a need-based waiver. The fee can be paid by credit card in your application, or you can mail a check. Please pay electronically when possible.

4. Test Scores (Optional): Students applying for admission to UW-River Falls have the choice if they want to submit standardized test scores (ACT or SAT) as part of their admission application. When completing the application for admission, you will be asked if you plan to submit test scores, if you would like your application reviewed without test scores (Test-Optional), or if you’re unsure.

Music program note: Students admitted to the university as music majors must also complete an audition through the Music Department. For further details, visit the Music Department’s audition information.
