In addition to academic
achievement, the following non-academic factors are considered as we review
work experience, extracurricular activities, and volunteerism;
characteristics and accomplishments including special talents and abilities,
honors, awards and personal qualities;
background, experience; and life circumstances.
While non-academic factors are
considered, they will not necessarily make an applicant with a weak academic
background a strong candidate for admission.
Your personal statement (no more
than 500 words, please) should include information regarding your academic
performance and co-curricular involvements during secondary school (high
school) as well as comments indicative of your plans for study and
co-curricular involvements while at UWSP.
advice: Your personal
statement is the place to show us what you know! Be certain to explain why UWSP
is a good fit based upon your learning goals and aspirations.
