Transfer Admission Requirements Spring 2020
Transfer Admission Guidelines
All applications receive a comprehensive review. Academic preparation and success are the primary considerations for admission, although nonacademic factors are also considered. Academic factors include GPA, intended major, and trend in grades. Nonacademic factors include student experience, work experience, leadership qualities, status as a nontraditional student, status as a veteran, or diversity in personal background or experience. Typically a minimum GPA of 2.0 will be expected for admission consideration.
Some admission preference may be given to UW Colleges transfer students with an Associate Degree
Other Guidelines for Admission Consideration
A minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA is required for admission.
This GPA is the minimum 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.
Minimum GPA Requirements for Admission Consideration to Specific Majors
The following list shows majors and corresponding minimum GPA requirements that exceed the minimum for admission to the campus.
|2.50||Elementary Education (a GPA of 2.75 is needed to apply for admission to the major)|
|2.75||Health Care Administration|
|2.75||Kinesiology—all areas of emphasis|
|3.00||Nursing (A GPA of 3.5 or greater is typical to be a strong candidate for admission.)|
|2.50||Secondary Education (a GPA of 2.75 is needed to apply for admission to the major)|
|2.75||Special Education (a GPA of 2.75 is needed to apply for admission to the major)|

Special Note for UW System Transfer Applicants
The UW System undergraduate transfer policy states that priority for admission will be given to two-year branch campuses transfers and other UW System transfers from campuses where a major is not available, subject to the limits of a campus’s enrollment target. All UW System campuses have Guaranteed Transfer agreements with the two-year branch campuses. Students admitted under these agreements should follow the requirements of the agreement. The stipulations of these agreements are not included in this listing.
