UW-Green Bay Direct Admissions Program

UW-Green Bay Direct Admissions Program
Posted on 02/13/2023
Vicki Bayer at press conferenceUW-Green Bay announced a new partnership with Green Bay Area Public Schools (GBAPS) on the first-in-the-state direct college admissions initiative. Through the program, all high school seniors graduating from GBAPS in 2024 and forward will no longer be required to complete a college application and will instead be directly admitted to UW-Green Bay. Students will work with career counselors to collect the appropriate information and determine a path to support each student’s goals for education beyond high school. 
Through this new direct admissions partnership, UW-Green Bay is removing a barrier that exists for many prospective students - completing an application – and instead moves directly into working with each student and their family to pursue education after high school. 

Under the partnership, GBAPS high school students and their families will work closely with UW-Green Bay career counselors. Together, they will work to determine financial need or special circumstances, and each student will be provided with resources to ensure a successful experience after high school, whether it be a degree program, certificate, non-credit option, or advice to begin at a technical college. 

While direct admission will help students of all backgrounds, the initiative is primarily aimed at students who:  
Want or need to stay local for their education. 
Cannot afford the cost of living in a dorm. 
Want to work while they go to school. 
Have a desire to continue to learn after high school. 
In 2023, UW-Green Bay is piloting direct admission with 31 local students. To date, 21 of the students who have been admitted have committed to attending UW-Green Bay.
