<p>There is one set of requirements for international students. This is to get into UW-S.</p>

<p>The second set is for anyone who has already been admitted, including students from the US. There are students coming from within the US who don't have a full command of Academic English. Some of them are recent immigrants who are still mastering English, others are victims of poorly funded school districts, some are sports stars who are going to lead the university's team to multiple victories, some are musicians or artists, still others are those kids who are really amazingly good at math/science but also amazingly bad at English composition. Remedial English is not just for international students. There are lots of US students who end up there as well!</p>
