The undergraduate program of the Wisconsin School of Business will transition to a once-per-year admission cycle in 2011 (fall admission only). This change means that students will have one opportunity a year to apply to the program, with applications being available in the early part of the spring semester (exact dates not set).
Students will be notified of their acceptance in early summer. The spring 2011 class will be the final spring class to enter to the school. This new process will allow the undergraduate program to increase coordination and sequencing of our curriculum.
Additionally, the business school has launched a pilot effort to admit freshmen to the undergraduate program. A number of high-merit, incoming UW-Madison freshmen were invited to apply for admission. A relatively small number of students from that group have been admitted to business directly out of high school, and will not be required to apply for sophomore admission. The Admissions Committee holistically evaluated each applicant based on a combination of academic and personal strengths.
Questions regarding these changes can be directed to Jeff Sawyer, director of undergraduate business admissions and recruitment, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-263-6299.
