UW-Stevens Point offers virtual visits, reduced application fees

With a reduced application fee and increased virtual visits, UW-Stevens Point is welcoming new students with changes to make it easier to enroll at all three campuses this fall.

Undergraduate application fees will be reduced from $50 to $25, effective immediately, for fall 2020 classes and beyond. In addition, unofficial high school transcripts will be accepted for admission consideration. Students will be able to self-report grade point averages and test scores.

“We know prospective students have questions, and we are here to help,” said Marc Young, director of admissions and recruitment. “We’ll be here in fall, ready to serve our students. We have a structure in place to meet students where they are.”

Live virtual visits of UW-Stevens Point are available on Fridays, and virtual individual sessions can be scheduled with an admissions counselor to answer any questions about Stevens Point, Wausau and Marshfield campuses. Visit www.uwsp.edu/admissions.

University of Wisconsin System announced today a series of changes to admissions policies for UW-Stevens Point and all UW institutions. In response to recent educational disruptions, the following steps are aimed at providing greater access for students:

An immediate reduction of the $50 per university undergraduate application fee to $25.
Making application fee waivers available for students experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19. Students who need a fee waiver may contact UW-Stevens Point Admissions.
Acceptance of unofficial transcripts for admission consideration and additional flexibilities in submitting other application materials.
Holding students harmless for circumstances out of their control such as the cancellation of ACT or SAT testing dates, or a high school or college moving to a pass-fail grading system.
At UW-Stevens Point, virtual tours have been available for those interested in learning more about campuses at www.uwsp.edu. Learn more about academic programs and campus life at your convenience.

“It’s never been a better time to stay close to home. If you start at one of our UW-Stevens Point campuses and choose to transfer elsewhere, the transition will be seamless to any UW institution,” Young said. “We’re here to help you discover your purpose.”
