If you are a student that has been fully admitted to UWM with an EAP placement hold or a graduate student with dual admission, then you are required to register for English for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses. If you are a fully admitted student with no EAP course requirement, then we recommend that you take the EAP courses instead of the general education requirement (GER) English courses.
If you are an undergraduate student, you can register for EAP courses by completing the following steps:
- Apply for and be admitted to UWM as an undergraduate.
- If you are fully admitted with an EAP course requirement because of your language proficiency, you will have a hold in PAWS that restricts enrollment in any UWM courses until you are enrolled in your required EAP courses. Soon after your admission, you will receive an email from the Assistant Academic Director-English for Academic Purposes, Brooke Haley, with information about your required EAP courses and next steps for enrollment. Learn more about the language proficiency requirements for undergraduates.
- If you are fully admitted with no EAP course requirement, take the Guided English Placement (GEP) assessment to determine which EAP course is best for you. Soon after you take the GEP, you will receive an email from the Assistant Academic Director-EAP with information your EAP placement and how to enroll. Learn more about the GEP.
