Special student classification: Online only
The online-only University Special (nondegree) student classification (UNOL) is for students who are non-Wisconsin residents (classified as such for tuition purposes), not currently in a degree program at UW–Madison, and planning to enroll in stand-alone online courses for which they meet the prerequisites. For more information and further restrictions please see our UNOL webpage.

Qualified high school juniors and seniors who are applying in the UNOL classification are required to submit a high school transcript with a minimum high school GPA of 3.0 overall and in the most recent semester.
