Reentry Students

How to apply if you've attended UW-Stout before and are looking to re-enroll.
In this Section

Which Type of Reentry Student Are You?

There are two types of reentry students:

Regular reentry students are those who have completed no transferable credits from any postsecondary institution since they last attended UW-Stout.
Transfer reentry students are those who have completed transferable credits at another post-secondary institution since they last attended UW-Stout.

Application Process: Regular Reentry Students

Special Circumstances
  • If you were in good standing when you left UW-Stout, you may be readmitted as enrollment management goals allow.
  • If you were on academic probation when you left UW-Stout, you may be readmitted on academic probation if there are openings in your chosen program.
  • If you are reapplying after being academically dismissed from UW-Stout, you may be readmitted on probation. You are required to submit a letter of appeal with your application. Decisions are made on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the Director of Admissions.

Application Process: Transfer Reentry Students​​

  • Complete the UW System Application.
  • Submit official transcripts from any other universities or colleges you've attended.
  • You do not need to pay the $50 application fee, submit your high school transcripts, or submit your ACT/SAT score.
Special circumstances
  • If your GPA is less than 2.20, you will be denied readmittance to UW-Stout. However, you may appeal this decision with the Dean of Students Office.
  • If you were in good standing or on academic probation when you left UW-Stout, you will be readmitted in the same status. Admission is contingent on your eligibility to return to your most recent institution as well as UW-Stout enrollment management goals.
  • If you are reapplying after being academically dismissed from UW-Stout, you may be readmitted on probation. You are required to submit a letter of appeal with your application. Decisions are made on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the Director of Admissions.
