International Student Admission
International students from around the globe contribute to the rich diversity of the UW-Green Bay learning community.
Admission for international students is based upon scholastic achievement and ability to use the English language. Note: Proof of ability to finance a UW-Green Bay education is expected prior to the issuing the necessary Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20).
An international student must have a recognized certificate of completion from a secondary school and provide transcripts for all high school work. Transcripts will also be required from all post-secondary schools attended, if any. Since all UW-Green Bay coursework is conducted in English, each international applicant must provide evidence of English proficiency. For further information about meeting the English proficiency requirements at UW-Green Bay, go to www.uwgb.edu/admissions/international/apply and click on “English Language Proficiency.”
International students must be prepared to finance their education. A limited number of partial tuition remission scholarships exist. Because of the difficulty in gaining permission from the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service to work off campus, international students should not anticipate financing an education by income from employment. Limited on-campus work opportunities are available.
The Office of International Education at UW-Green Bay will issue the necessary Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20) to admitted students once it is confirmed the student has the ability to finance a UW-Green Bay education.
Further information about international student admission is available at www.uwgb.edu/admissions/international/apply/.
