Application Process and Deadlines
Your complete application must be received by midnight on the stated deadline to be considered. Each summer program has its own deadline listed on its program overview web page; the table below is a reference of what the typical deadline is for a given term. Summer 2020 applicants will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Fall and spring semester students will be notified of their application status within one month of the deadline.

After the priority deadline, you will be able to apply for spring
programs that did not reach capacity after the the first round. International Programs will reopen the application in April for these programs and review applications on a rolling basis until the final deadline or until the program fills. Most exchange programs will fill during the first round.
Selection for many of the Wisconsin School of Business’ is competitive due to limited spaces and the number of applicants in the pool. Competitive programs will typically fill up by the earliest deadline so you are encouraged to apply by this date.
Last year, 76% of all semester program applicants received a space on their top choice program.
