A Multi-Campus Collaboration
The UW Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness Management is a collaboration of the University of Wisconsin-Extension and four University of Wisconsin degree-granting institutions: UW-La Crosse, UW-River Falls, UW-Stevens Point, and UW-Superior. This partnership allows us to bring you a truly multidisciplinary curriculum taught by knowledgeable and experienced instructors from across the UW System.
Choose a “home” campus
Although you will take courses taught by faculty from all four partner campuses and complete your program entirely online, you will be asked to choose a “home” campus from the institutions above. Your home campus is the institution from which you will receive financial aid (if you qualify), advising, career services, and ultimately, your diploma. Admission and graduation requirements may vary across these institutions. Talk with an enrollment adviser for more information.
Admission to the UW Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness Management requires:
- Approximately 60 credits of transferable general education coursework with a 2.0 or better grade point average (GPA).
- Prerequisite coursework in four courses: Introduction to psychology, introduction to biology, introduction to public speaking, and composition II. UW campus equivalents or other college/university equivalents may be substituted.
- Official high school and college transcripts.
How to Apply
While you are free to apply on your own, many prospective students find great value in speaking with an enrollment advisor first. Our friendly staff is here to answer your questions, talk with you about your career goals, and help you ensure that this program is a good choice for you.
Step 2. Apply to your preferred home campus using the University of Wisconsin System Online Admission Application. A nonrefundable $44 application fee is required for most degree-seeking students applying to a UW System institution. That fee is not required, however, if the last institution that you attended was a two-year UW Colleges campus. The fee is required if you are transferring between UW System four-year campuses or if you have never attended a UW System campus.
Step 3. Contact your high school and each postsecondary institution you have attended to request that official transcripts be sent directly to the home campus to which you are applying. If you earned a GED/HSED, an official copy of the qualifying scores must also be submitted from the testing agency. If you have an associate degree, bachelor’s degree, or equivalent coursework, the ACT or SAT is not required.
Formal admission to the program will be determined by the campus to which you apply. Please refer to our FAQ page regarding any specific requirements.
Financial Aid Options
Financial aid is available to students who qualify. See our Tuition and Financial Aid page for details.
