The Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness Management is a degree completion program designed for students who already have some college credits or an associate degree–as described in the next paragraph. You are eligible for admission to this degree if you have completed an associate degree or at least 60 semester credits of transferable coursework with a 2.0 or better grade point average (GPA) and the following prerequisite courses: Introductory Psychology, Introductory Biology, Speech, and English Composition.
In order for an associate degree to apply to the HWM program, it must be a college parallel program from an accredited four-year institution, two-year collegiate transfer program from a two-year institution, community college or junior college. Students admitted with an associate degree are still required to meet all core, professional, ethnic studies, major, and minor requirements. The university reserves the right to review the student’s associate degree and require additional general education courses.
Admitted students are encouraged to refer to our website for additional information: http://www2.uwlax.edu/Admissions/Admitted-Health-Wellness-Management-student/
To begin, you must choose as your home campus one of four collaborating University of Wisconsin campuses.
Your degree from UW-La Crosse will be granted by the College of Science and Health. You must earn a minimum of 120 semester credits with at least a 2.00 cumulative grade point average (GPA). Note that some programs may require a higher minimum cumulative GPA for graduation. At least 40 credits must be earned in 300 and 400 (upper division) numbered courses. Courses earned at the lower division level at another institution, or two-year institution, regardless of equivalency, will not count toward the 40 credits required for graduation. Completion of the UW-La Crosse General Education program will be determined on a case-by-case basis following an official evaluation of all college transcripts.
