Transfer Admission Requirements Spring 2020
Transfer Admission Guidelines
All applications receive a comprehensive review. Admission decisions are based on GPA, the number of credits earned, rigor and breadth of curriculum, and other predictors of success. Generally, students with a cumulative transfer GPA of 2.0 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.

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.
