English/Writing: ACT or SAT Test Scores

Official ACT or SAT scores are optional and used for placement purposes only for:

  • all new freshmen;
  • all transfer and reentry students who have not satisfactorily completed at least one college-level course in Writing Foundations;
  • special (non-degree) students who want to enroll in an Writing Foundations course;
  • students wishing to be eligible for intercollegiate athletics.

ACT/SAT test scores are used to provide a basis for course level placement in Writing Foundations.  While UW-Green Bay does not require the ACT/SAT for Admissions purposes, in order to enroll in a Writing Foundations course above WF 100, an ACT/SAT score is needed.

Mathematics: Wisconsin Mathematics Placement Test

The Wisconsin Mathematics Placement Test (WMPT) is required for:

  • all new freshmen;
  • all transfer and reentry students who have not satisfactorily completed a college-level mathematics course;
  • all special students who want to enroll in a mathematics course.
