If you plan to return to your graduate program after an absence of two or more semesters (excluding summer and UWinteriM sessions), you must apply to re-enter the Graduate School using the Panthera Graduate School Application. Look for the Re-Entry Application link at the bottom of the left menu on the application home page.

The Graduate School has the following requirements for re-entering students:
  • Completion of a semester’s work within the past five years.
  • A cumulative graduate GPA of 3.0.
  • Clearance of academic and administrative holds.
  • Being within the time limit for degree completion.
  • A $20 processing fee.
Note: Application fees for UW-Milwaukee Graduate School applications will increase on July 1, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. CST. View Details.

You may also need the approval of your graduate program unit. Check with your unit about its re-entry requirements.
