Preparing Your Application Essay

Give us the full story. Stuff happens in high school. Sometimes it’s things we could have avoided and sometimes it’s not. The essay on the application has a place for you to tell us your story. There are always factors that influence your academic background that aren’t visible on your transcript, and there are always contributions you can make to UW-Green Bay that will only come to light when you tell them in your own words. It’s important that you communicate with us about any special circumstances that impacted your performance in high school. Please take the time to tell us about: 

      • Your academic successes 
      • Your academic challenges and how you overcame them 
      • Why and how you believe you will succeed at UW-Green Bay 
      • How you will contribute to our campus
