Fall Enrollment Remains Open

Enrollment for admissions remains open at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls for fall semester 2004-05.

Admissions Director Alan Tuchtenhagen said the University will be enrolling a larger freshman class this year, and increasing access to local area students remains a high priority. The University is particularly interested in processing applications from returning, older students as well as recent high school graduates from western Wisconsin.

"There are some individuals who are deciding to start back to college after working for a few years," said Tuchtenhagen "Some have attended college in the past. Others are interested in attending for the first time. The University has a strong commitment to assist in the higher education of families of west-central Wisconsin. Although we have a limited amount of room for additional new students for fall term, we want to be sure that individuals from this region have an opportunity here."

Residence hall space is still available for students, and financial aid applications can still be processed. New students must meet admission standards by demonstrating academic preparedness. Students with questions about their previous academic work and admission standards should contact the UW-RF Admissions Office at 715/425-3500.

UW River Falls has some unique programs that are not available at many other universities, such as biotechnology, geographic information systems, environmental science, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, horticulture, as well as food science and technology. The University's most popular programs with largest enrollments are business, computer science, education, marketing communications, animal and food science as well as fine arts.
