How to Prepare for Your Application with the High School Record

How you prepare in high school matters. 

The best way to determine if you are likely to do well at UW-Green Bay is for a college to review your performance in high school, including your grades in challenging college prep courses. 

The more challenging the coursework you complete in high school, the more likely you are to be successful at UW-Green Bay. We require minimum college preparatory units. Most students complete more than these minimum units. 


    • 4 units of English 
    • 3 units of science 
    • 3 units of math (algebra, geometry, advanced algebra or the equivalent integrated coursework) 
    • 3 units of social science 
    • 4 other electives 

Many high school students have the opportunity to take honors courses, Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) or college courses while enrolled in high school. We encourage these types of rigorous courses. Have questions about what courses you should take in high school? Ask us! Contact us to connect with an admissions counselor.
