University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee joins Common App
MILWAUKEE _ Students applying to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for Fall 2021 can now do so through Common App, a college application platform that is used by more than 3 million college applicants, teachers, counselors and advisors globally each year.
In addition to Common App, UW-Milwaukee will continue to accept the UW System application.
In addition to a single application accepted by hundreds of universities, Common App provides students with financial aid and scholarship information, virtual mentors and online portfolios. It also includes a vast library of counselor resources in English and Spanish.
“Our goal is to make it as easy and affordable as possible for students to achieve their dreams of a college education,” UWM Chancellor Mark A. Mone said. “Our new partnership with the Common App will make it simpler for students to get started, and it will reduce the cost of application for many.”
Students interested in applying to UWM with the Common App can create an account immediately because accounts roll over from year to year. UWM began accepting applications for Fall 2021 on Saturday, Aug. 1.
The Common App is available immediately for new students. A version for transfer students will be available soon. Returning students may not have to re-apply if they have not been away long.
