The majority of the 87 positions available in each professional class are reserved for Wisconsin residents. While the exact number of nonresidents admitted each year will be determined annually, typically that number will be no more than 27. The UW-Madison Residence Counselor’s Office determines residence status for tuition purposes. This decision is based on information applicants provide in their application. The SVM will rely on the resident classification determined by the Resident Counselor’s Office.
If you feel you may qualify for Wisconsin residency status, please contact the Office of Academic Affairs.
Obtaining Wisconsin Residency
