UW–Madison is a world-class university and admission is both competitive and selective. Each year the university must turn away students who would clearly succeed at UW–Madison but whose academic background, achievements, and characteristics are not as strong as those of the students who are admitted. Academic preparation is the primary consideration for admission, but numbers alone do not determine admissibility. The university considers individual achievement as well as personal characteristics that will contribute to the strength and diversity of the university community. Admission policies are set by the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System, the Faculty Senate, and, in some cases, individual schools, colleges, and departments.
