Transfer Admission Requirements Spring 2018
Transfer Admission Guidelines
All applications receive a comprehensive review. If you have completed 12 credits of transferable course work you will be considered for admission based on a review of your college records. If you have fewer than 12 transferable credits you may be considered for admission based on a review of both your high school and collegiate records. Most admitted transfer students have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or greater on all transferable coursework. Competency in English and mathematics is an important factor in the admission decision. Some selective programs (Peck School of the Arts, School of Architecture and Urban Planning, College of Engineering, College of Nursing) may have additional requirements for direct admission into their majors.
Minimum GPA Requirements for Admission Consideration to Specific Majors
Credit and Other Requirements for Admission Consideration
Programs other than those listed under GPA Requirements for Transfers in Selected Programs/Majors require a minimum of 12 attempted credits at an accredited campus. Applicants with fewer than 12 credits will be evaluated on the same basis as new freshman applicants.

Special Note for UW System Transfer Applicants
The UW System undergraduate transfer policy states that priority for admission will be given to UW Colleges 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 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.
