2. GPA Requirements:

A 2.25 GPA or higher is required to be accepted on a probationary status. An applicant’s college GPA will also be considered if high school GPA is lower than 2.25 but college (minimum of 12 credits) is higher than 2.25, the applicant is eligible for admittance. If an applicant has previously been denied because minimum GPA requirements were not met, the applicant may establish a "new" GPA with 12 college credits of 2.25 or higher and reapply.

Per Wisconsin Statute TCS-10, out-of-state residents cannot be placed on a waiting list and out-of-district residents are not permitted to be placed on a waiting list for a program that closes prior to the out-of-district resident processing date. For admissions purposes, Minnesota residents are processed as out-of-district residents. Refer to the Residency Determination web page for more information.
