Prospective Students

Campus Information:

Our campus (2,700+ students) means you don't get lost in the crowd. Professors know your name and understand your goals. You get better access to programs and activities than you could at a larger campus.

Our academic programs are top-notch and include a wide range of interesting fields of study. These include social work, biology, business, American Indian studies, computer information systems, criminal justice, art and music, just to name a few. Our teacher education program is the first in Wisconsin to offer an Indian Studies minor for students who want to specialize in teaching Native American children.

UW-Superior also is affordable. Our tuition is among the lowest in the University of Wisconsin System. Many of our students will tell you that we offer the atmosphere and services of a private college with the price and convenience of a public university. Opportunities for financial assistance include state, tribal and campus programs for minority students.

As a student at UW-Superior, you will encounter a stimulating mix of students of color from the Unites States as well as countries around the world. We are located in the heart of American Indian Country, with 10 reservations within a 150-mile radius of campus. As UW-Superior continues to increase its emphasis on serving multicultural students, you will find yourself with a chance to become a leader in establishing learning opportunities and programs at the University and in the community.

If you're transferring to UW-Superior from a tribal or community college, check with your guidance counselor. We have articulation agreements with many regional colleges that enable students to easily transfer course credits or their associate degree credits to UW-Superior.

For non-traditional students and students who commute to campus, we offer a variety of services for your convenience.
