Student Classifications and Application Requirements

Application requirements vary based on a variety of factors, including whether or not you’ve previously taken college courses, how many credit hours you have, and how long you’ve been out of high school. Take a look at the classification types below to determine what most sounds like you. Once you’ve determined your classification, you’re ready to start your Application for Admission.

  • Optional – SAT or ACT score (required for nursing students 21 years old and younger with less than 24 college credit hours)

Re-Entry

You attended the University of Evansville, withdrew before completing a degree, and did not attend another college or university since UE. If you attended another university since UE, you are considered a transfer student.

Note: Students who withdrew and want to return the subsequent semester are not required to re-apply (e.g. you attended during a fall semester, withdrew before the end of the term, and want to return for the spring semester. Contact Academic Services at academicservices@evansville.edu or 812-488-2600 to register.)

  • Visiting Transient Students
    Students from other colleges and universities who wish to take courses at UE but plan to graduate from their “home” institution.

  • College Graduate Students
    Students who have a college degree but need additional undergraduate credit to earn special licensing or to prepare for graduate school admission.

  • Non-traditional Students
    Non-degree-seeking students who wish to take courses for personal enrichment or college credit.
