UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
We seek students with a variety of personal and professional backgrounds and interests. No particular undergraduate major is required or preferred. Personal, academic, and professional experiences in social justice, equity, inclusion, or diversity are valued. The program will consider applicants who meet the following requirements:
Students who do not meet the GPA requirement are still encouraged to apply. GPA is only one indicator of a student's potential; the department considers many other factors. Candidates who would like to discuss their application should contact email@example.com.
The GRE is NOT required.
Check out this short video about applying to the program. It will walk you through navigating the website and application process.
This survey will ask you about your interests in the various program options (blended, on-campus, or online). You will mark the blended program as someone interested in working at UW-River Falls. More details related to all program options can be found on the UWL SAA page. You will also be asked about the types of graduate assistantships or internships you'd like to be considered for. You will also be asked to share reference contact information and to upload a current resume and personal statement (2-4 pages), responding to the following questions:
You may choose to write about you're interested in the blended program or what specific areas of higher education you'd like to work in if you are seeking a graduate assistantship or internship.
If you would like to submit any updated information or expand/narrow the program type (blended, on-campus, or online) or positions you'd like to be considered for, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UW-River Falls recruits graduate students every two years. Our next cohort will start Fall 2021.
Students with completed program applications will be contacted no sooner than December 2020, and may be invited to interview with the program at:
Visit Days will include academic program interviews and assistantship/internship interviews. The Oshkosh Placement Exchange (OPE) allows students to apply for multiple positions, primarily, though not exclusively, in residence life. At OPE, we will conduct information sessions and program interviews for those who may be applying for positions at any number of institutions, including UWL, UWRF, or elsewhere.
Students are NOT required to attend Visit Day(s) or OPE in order to be considered for our program, as we will conduct interviews virtually, as needed.
Offers for positions may occur at any point after interviews.
Those applying for the online program will be asked to accept or decline offers by March 15, 2021. Those applying for the blended or on-campus program will be asked to accept or decline offers by April 15, 2021. Students can accept or decline before those dates, but no employer or program should pressure students to accept prior to those dates. The online program date is earlier because classes begin in May, and we need time to orient the final cohort prior to classes beginning.
The blended options at UW-River Falls started in 2013, and combines online education with in-person instruction. Classes take place in the traditional fall/spring academic calendar and students work in Graduate Student Internships at UWRF while taking SAA courses in online or blended formats. The next UWRF cohort will begin September 2019.
