UW-Oshkosh Transfer Admission Requirements Spring 2015

Transfer Admission Guidelines

Transfer applications are evaluated through a comprehensive, individualized review process. Academic information considered includes post-secondary records, such as GPA, and may also include high school records, standardized test scores, and/or other relevant information.

A minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA is required for admission. All applications meeting the minimum requirements will go through a comprehensive review to determine admissibility.
This GPA is the minimum required for consideration and does not guarantee admission. In some cases, the GPA may be acceptable for admission to the campus without guaranteeing admission to the major.

All UW System campuses have Guaranteed Transfer agreements with the UW Colleges. Students admitted under these agreements should follow the requirements of the agreement. The stipulations of these agreements are not included in this listing.
