Students With a H.S. Diploma or GED/HSED
Special students who are not currently attending high school must provide documentation of having earned a high school diploma, high school equivalency diploma (HSED) or general educational development (GED) certificate. Applicants who hold an HSED or GED must also provide an official high school transcript for the portion of high school they attended.
Special students submit the online UW System application and select “special/non-degree seeking” as their applicant status.
There is no application fee for special students.
The admissions office will notify an applicant of any documentation needed for an admissions decision. Applicants may be asked to provide an official high school transcript or HSED/GED documentation. Applicants who previously attended a college or university will be asked to indicate whether or not they left their prior campus in good academic standing and may be asked to submit official transcripts from those prior campuses.
The Admissions Decision
The admissions office will mail you an admissions decision letter approximately 10 days after the applicant’s file is complete.
Special students are encouraged to obtain a Titan Card (student identification card) for access to library materials, computer labs and other campus resources. Titan cards are obtained at Titan Central in Reeve Memorial Union. Students must show proof of enrollment in classes and a photo I.D. (driver’s license, passport, etc.) to obtain a Titan Card.
Registration for Classes
Special students are eligible to enroll in classes 30 days prior to the start of an academic term. Admitted special students may plan for registration by guest browsing classes on Titan Web.
