Transfer Admission Requirements – Fall 2017
Minimum GPA and Other Guidelines for Admission Consideration
All applications receive a comprehensive review. Admission decisions are based on GPA, number of credits earned, rigor and breadth of curriculum, and other predictors of success. Generally, students with a cumulative transfer GPA of 2.5 or above have the highest likelihood of admission. Based on the comprehensive review, students with less competitive academic records may be placed on a waiting list.
Some admission preference will be given to students whose most recent college experience is at the UW Colleges and who have earned a UW Colleges Associate’s Degree.
In some cases, the GPA may be acceptable for admission to the campus without guaranteeing admission to the major.

The following list shows majors and corresponding minimum GPA requirements that exceed the minimum for admission to the campus.

All UW System campuses have Guaranteed Transfer agreements with the UW Colleges. Students admitted under these agreements should follow the requirements of the agreement.
