Detailed program information

Traditional Program

Is the Traditional program right for you?
To determine if this program is right for you:

  • Review the Admission eligibility requirements and Course selection guidelines
  • With your high school guidance counselor, make sure the course you hope to take aligns with our Course selection guidelines and fits your academic plans.

  • Determine with your family if you are able to pay the complete cost of tuition and fees.
  • Consider:
    Transportation time: Commute time between your school and UW-Madison - most courses involve both lecture and discussion and/or lab sections which may not meet at the same time of day.
    Meetings outside of class: Some courses will require student group meetings outside of class time. (This may include evening hours.)
    Final exams: Final exams are scheduled at a time other than the regular course meeting time.  To make sure you are available for the final exam, check course details in the Schedule of Classes.
    UW-Madison transcript: Participating students establish a permanent UW-Madison record and earn university credit. The GPA from your coursework as a Special student will be applied to your GPA should you attend UW-Madison as an undergraduate student in the future.

    Admissions eligibility requirements
    Review these requirements to determine if you are eligible to apply.

    • You must be a high school junior or senior with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.000 (overall and in the most recent semester).
    • Traditional program applicants can be either private or public high school students.
    • Your high school counselor or principal must recommend admission and support your enrollment plan.
    • If you plan to take courses in subsequent terms you must maintain a 3.000 GPA at your high school and a 2.000 GPA in UW-Madison coursework.
    • Your academic plan should be to enroll only in UW-Madison courses that meet the Course selection guidelines.

    Course selection guidelines
    Follow these guidelines when selecting potential UW-Madison courses. 

    • You must have exhausted the high school curriculum in the subject area and have proven academic need to take the course - meet with your school counselor for endorsement of course choices.
    • Only courses at the 100-200 (elementary) level with no prerequisites specified and open to college freshmen are allowed unless prerequisites or placement requirements have been met. Many specific prerequisites exist but are not listed as a strong academic background and necessary knowledge is presumed to be satisfied by undergraduate admissions criteria.
    • Courses numbered x90 and x99 are NOT available for high school students to take.
    • Only one course per term is allowed.
    • High school students in University Special student status are the last to enroll and priority is always given to degree-seeking students (including when enrolling from a wait list).

      Course Options Program

      Is the Course Options program right for you?
      This program was created by the Wisconsin State Legislature and implemented by the WI Department of Public Instruction for fall 2014 as available to qualified high school students (juniors and seniors only at UW-Madison) to enroll in a public institution, including UW-Madison. Consult with your school district regarding family obligation for tuition and fees.  Applicants must meet the separate and distinct admissions criteria for the institution.  For UW-Madison, the requirements of University Special student admissions by ACSSS as listed above under Admissions eligibility requirements and the Course selection guidelines must be met.  Note that the deadline for submitting an admissions application and materials to UW-Madison is six weeks before the term begins.  Follow the steps below well in advance of that deadline. Other UW-Madison policies affecting process steps of the Course Options Program are (1) the student is the active agent in all communication, procedures, and decisions and (2) the enrollment schedule for all UW-Madison students requires that the special status high school student will enroll as the term begins and class space is confirmed.

      To be considered for participation in the Course Options Program:

      1. Talk with your high school guidance counselor to confirm you qualify for UW-Madison University Special student admissions and to determine if taking a UW-Madison course fits your academic plans.  Confirm that your course preferences satisfy a high school graduation requirement and are supported by the school district.  School counselor or principal endorsement is required. (See the UW-Madison Enrollment Plan Form.)
      2. With your counselor, refer to the Course selection guidelines outlined by ACSSS when considering if the class you hope to take at UW-Madison is right for you and likely to have enrollment space available.
      3. Obtain the Course Options Application Form PI-8900 from the Wisconsin DPI website.  You (the student) complete sections I and II no later than 6 weeks prior to the start of the intended term (earlier is recommended) and submit it for completion of section III to ACSSS: Adult Career and Special Student Services, UW-Madison, 21 N Park St, Suite 7101, Madison, WI 53715-1218.  Or send as attachment via email: advising@dcs.wisc.edu with the subject line: Course Options PI-8900.  You are encouraged to submit a copy of the completed PI-8900 to your school district Course Options representative at this time.
      4. While reviewing the course requests, ACSSS staff consults with the school district Course Options contact to confirm that you qualify for UNHS admission and Course Option Program participation.  ACSSS staff will contact you if a student record or other materials are needed at this time.
      5. ACSSS completes PI-8900 section III and sends a copy to you and a copy to the school district contact.  NOTE: Until the semester begins, due to the UW-Madison enrollment schedule, ACSSS cannot determine if seats are available.  Therefore the decision in Section III will be either:
        • denied or
        • to be determined - with a date specified that indicates when you are likely to learn if a space may be available.  (You will still need to meet all admissions and enrollment criteria. See the Application and enrollment procedures section of this webpage).
      6. If ACSSS completes section III and indicates enrollment may be possible, the school district continues to review the request and completes section IV with approval/denial.  PI-8900 is sent to the student.  ACSSS is notified of school district approval or denial.
      7. If you plan to enroll in a course tentatively approved (see #5 & #6 above), you must be admitted to UW-Madison as a University Special student in the UNHS/high school student classification.  Do not delay applying for admission following the steps outlined in the Application and enrollment procedures section.  In the academic plan statement of the application, indicate that you are a Course Options Program applicant.  Additional documents are required as part of the university admissions process: your high school transcript and the Enrollment Plan Form with required signatures.  The admission application deadline is 6 weeks prior to the start of the term, so plan your application for the Course Options Program accordingly.

      To determine if this program is right for you:

      • Review the Admission eligibility requirements and Course selection guidelines
      • Meet with your high school guidance counselor to make sure the course you hope to take aligns with our Course selection guidelines and fits your academic plans.

       

      • Complete sections I and II of the Course Options form and submit it to ACSSS for completion of section III no later than 6 weeks before the start of the term. (See number 3 above.) Identify each course by the department name and course number as it appears in the UW-Madison Schedule of Classes. Please keep in mind the UW-Madison Course selection guidelines when listing courses on this form.
      • Consider:
          Transportation time: Commute time between your school and UW-Madison - most courses involve both lecture and discussion and/or lab sections which may not meet at the same time of day.
          Meetings outside of class: Some courses will require student group meetings outside of class time (this may include evening hours).
          Final exams: Final exams are scheduled at a time other than the regular course meeting time.  To make sure you are available for the final exam, check course details in the Schedule of Classes.
          UW-Madison transcript: Participating students establish a permanent UW-Madison record and earn university credit. The GPA from your coursework as a Special student will be applied to your GPA should you attend UW-Madison as an undergraduate student in the future.

The current Schedule of Classes has deadline information. For questions regarding University Special student policy, see our FAQs or contact ACSSS.

            Courses taken as a University Special student become part of the permanent University record and may affect subsequent admission to postsecondary institutions. A poor grade could have a negative impact on a future admission decision.

            Student Privacy Rights (FERPA) rules apply to ALL University students. Communication is expected from students (not parents), and is restricted by law in regards to student record, including course schedule.

            Students are required to follow campus policy of using and checking your @wisc.edu email for all correspondence with UW-Madsion staff, faculty, and offices.
