Veteran Admissions Information
For veterans seeking admission into the University of Wisconsin-Madison, there are a couple of different options available to you depending on your eligibility. If you are getting out of the service or have already separated from the service and have not taken any college courses prior to applying here, you should apply directly to the Admissions Office. Here, you can apply directly on-line by scrolling down and clicking on the Application.
If you did not have a successful high school career, you may want to apply to a junior college such as Madison College or one of the other UW system schools before coming to UW-Madison.
If you are a veteran and have previously taken college courses and want to transfer the credits here, you have more options of admission available to you.
