Additional important application information:

  • A Graduate Admissions Office representative will create and organize a file of each applicant's submitted materials. However, it is the applicant's responsibility to monitor and ensure the completion status of her/his application (call 715-425-3500). Any materials received after January 15th will result in an incomplete file. Incomplete files will not be reviewed.
  • Final admission decisions are typically made by mid-February. Admitted applicants must "declare intent" (i.e., indicate intent to join the program or not) no later than April 15th.
  • The program's faculty does not formally interview applicants. However, all prospective students are highly encouraged to schedule a campus visit, speak with a faculty member and/or attend one of the department's open house events. An open house includes Q&A sessions with the faculty and current students and facility tours.
