UW-Eau Claire is not going to be among the UW campuses changing how they admit students.
University president Jay Rothman on Friday said most UW schools are switching to direct admissions. That means Wisconsin high school students simply have to graduate in order to be accepted. UW-Eau Claire, UW-Madison, and UW-La Crosse are all opting out of the change. The switch comes as most UW schools saw fewer students enroll this fall.
