Preliminary estimates show increased enrollment in new freshmen at UW-Platteville for the second year in a row, a 30% increase in new freshman enrollment at the UW-Platteville Baraboo Sauk County campus, as well as an increase in new transfer students on the main campus and in online programs, both of which are up by more than 10%. 

“This increase in enrollment reflects UW-Platteville’s commitment to excellence and ability to adapt and innovate to provide an education that prepares students for jobs of the future,” said UW-Platteville Chancellor Dr. Tammy Evetovich. “I am encouraged by our preliminary enrollment estimates and proud of the collaborative work and dedication of our faculty and staff who made this a reality. Together, we have turned the ship in the right direction, and we will continue to do the work to build on this momentum.”

The total projected enrollment at UW-Platteville for the 2023-24 academic year is 6,702 – an estimated 3% increase from last fall.
