Wisconsin Colleges with low acceptance rates

Colleges with the Lowest Acceptance Rate in Wisconsin for 2024

These are the most selective public and private four-year colleges in Wisconsin. The list is ranked by acceptance rate, lowest to highest and limited to schools which reject at least half of all applicants. Leading the list is University of Wisconsin Madison which sent acceptance letters to only 49% of the 60,214 students who applied and rejected 51%.

Not all schools on the most selective list are overly academically challenging. Some schools with less rigorous test and high school GPA requirements may receive a large numbers of qualified applicants and the school does not have space to admit them all.
