Note: this website provides step-by-step instructions to apply to the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Admission to UW Oshkosh does not guarantee admission to the student’s intended college, major or program. Please visit the website for your intended major or program to determine if there are any additional admission requirements or application procedures. 


Step 1: Apply to UW Oshkosh

Transfer students may apply online at A paper application may also be obtained from any high school guidance office in Wisconsin or by contacting the admissions office.

Students are required to list all post-secondary schools they have attended. Failure to list all previously attended schools is considered academic dishonesty. Failure to disclose and submit transcripts from all colleges attended, even if no transferable credit was earned, may result in denial of admission or dismissal from the university.

UW Oshkosh does not have any application deadlines.

  • Students interested in attending in Spring 2018 should begin their application as soon as possible.
  • Applications for the Fall 2018 term opened September 1, 2017. If you are planning to apply for Summer or Fall 2018, we recommend you apply by January 15 to ensure you are ready to enroll for courses in late February, early March.
Step 2: Submit a $50 Nonrefundable Application Fee

Submit a $50 nonrefundable application fee. If you are applying as a degree-seeking student to UW Oshkosh, the nonrefundable application fee of $50 is required. This is payable at the end of your online application. If the last institution you attended was a UW College (two-year campus), the application fee will be waived.

Step 3: Send Your College/University Transcripts

Submit an official transcript from all colleges or universities previously attended. An official high school transcript is also required if a student has earned fewer than 30 transferable college credits at the time they apply OR if the student has exclusively earned college credit from a technical college. Your application will not be complete until all transcripts are received.
