UW La Crosse Admissions Student Instructions If
changes or corrections need to be made to your
application after submission, do not submit
another application.  Please notify the campus
admission office in writing (e-mail or U.S.
mail), of any changes to your application. If
you have not already done so, submit the
following items to the UW-La Crosse Office of
Admissions at 142 Cleary Center, 1725 State
Street, La Crosse, WI 54601-3788 1.   
Application Fee  If you are applying as a
degree-seeking student to this institution, a
nonrefundable application fee of 44 is
required.  You may pay the application fee online
with Visa or Mastercard or by sending a check or
money order to UW-La Crosse.  If sending a check
or money order, payable to the University of
Wisconsin, enclose it with this sheet.  The fee
is not required if your last institution attended
was any UW Colleges (two-year freshman/sophomore)
campus, or if you previously attended UW-La
Crosse as an undergraduate degree-seeking
student. If you are required to submit an
application fee, this application will not be
processed until UW-La Crosse receives the 44
application fee.  A separate fee is required for
each campus to which you are applying. 2.   
High School Transcripts      If you are
currently enrolled in high school, ask that an
official transcript be forwarded to the
Admissions Office.  If your high school is set up
to send eTranscripts, go to your high school
website and follow the links to the electronic
transcript request site.      If you are NOT
currently enrolled in high school, contact your
high school to have an official transcript
(beginning with grade 9) sent to the Admissions
Office.      If you have a GED/HSED, you will
need to have an official score report sent in
addition to an official high school transcript
for years completed.      High school
transcripts are not required if you previously
attended UW-La Crosse as a degree-seeking
student. 3.    Test Scores  (not required for
transfer or reentry applicants,  unless
requested)      New freshman applicants are
required to submit the results of the ACT or
SAT.        Official ACT/SAT score reports,
received directly from the testing agency, are
required. 4.    Postsecondary Transcripts 
Official transcripts from each and every
postsecondary institution (even if the only
action recorded is a withdrawal) are required. 
Contact each college, university and any other
postsecondary institution attended to request
that transcripts be sent to the UW-La Crosse
Admissions Office. Note  Your application will
not be considered complete without the above
