General UW-Stout Graduate School Application
All prospective graduate students at UW-Stout must follow a standard application process through our Graduate School. Beyond that, each graduate program has specific requirements that must be met to be successfully admitted to the program:
Program-Specific Admission Requirements
To be admitted to this program, you must:
- Hold a bachelor’s degree in construction or a construction-related field from an accredited institution.
- Have earned a GPA of at least 3.0.
- Demonstrated experience in the discipline as evidenced by a resume.
Those with a non-construction-related degree may be considered for admission to the program upon completing one of the three following conditions:
- Prerequisite coursework in the following content areas: Environmental Systems-HVAC, Electrical and Plumbing, Advanced Construction Estimating, Management of Construction, and Legal Aspects of Construction, with a grade of “B” or better. Applicants who are denied admission due to deficiencies in these prerequisites will be advised that the courses can be taken at UW-Stout as a special non-degree student but this will not guarantee admission into the graduate program. The undergraduate deficiency courses can also be taken at any regionally accredited degree-granting institution.
- Evidence of equivalent courses/professional knowledge.
- Proof of an American Institute of Constructors Certification at the Associate Constructor (Level 1) or the Certified Constructor (Level 2).
To successfully apply to the program, please submit your resume and proof of certification to the Program Director.
