CALS undergrad admissions initiative aims to boost production agriculture in Wisconsin

A fall 2007 pilot admissions initiative for the College is working to retain Wisconsin students who are both highly qualified and deeply committed to long-term careers in Wisconsin agriculture.

The pilot applies to UW-Madison applicants who are currently involved in state agriculture with demonstrated commitment to one of seven production agriculture degree programs. Essentially, the initiative will admit these students meeting normal admissions expectations earlier in the admissions process, rather than being placed on the “postpone decision” list, as long as they are likely to be ultimately admitted.

A news release on the new program is posted on the CALS news site at
