3. Send Transcripts
4. Admission Decisions
If you attended another college or university while away from UWM, we require an official college transcript sent directly from the school. If you are currently taking college classes, please include a list of your current college classes on the application form. We value your work at other institutions, and we want to award as much credit as possible. Visit our transfer credit
page for more details.
Soon after we receive your application, we will send you information about how to check the status of your application online, via our PAWS (Panther Access to Web Services) student information system. Log onto PAWS to monitor your application “to do” items. Once all of the “to do” items disappear, your file is complete and is ready for an admission decision. During peak times, you may expect to wait 4-6 weeks for a decision.
