If the Farm and Industry Short Course (FISC) program is the right fit for you, apply by filling out our online admission application. Applications open on or around October 1 and close August 1 of the following year. All domestic applications, including transcripts, are due by August 1, 2017. International applications are due June 1, 2017.
In addition to submitting an application, applicants must mail an official high school or post-secondary transcript, depending upon the most recent school of attendance. (If a post-secondary transcript has fewer than 2 years of classwork reported, an applicant must also submit a high school transcript in addition to the post-secondary one). An application will be considered incomplete until an official transcript is received. Second year applicants do NOT need to submit a transcript unless otherwise instructed.
International applicants are required to submit additional documents in order for their application to be considered complete. Refer to the International Students page for details.
Mail all transcripts and additional application materials to:
Farm & Industry Short Course
University of Wisconsin – Madison
