Transfer Admission Requirements Fall 2018
Transfer Admission Guidelines
Applications are given a comprehensive review. The academic rigor of the college-level courses taken and cumulative GPA are important indicators of success. The applicant’s high school record may be considered as well. Nonacademic factors will also be considered and may include, but are not limited to, leadership, community service, creativity, unique talents, and personal characteristics that contribute to the strength and diversity of the campus.
Typically, successful applicants will have a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA. Higher academic expectations or earlier application priority dates may be imposed on specific majors if necessary in order to keep enrollment within program capacities.

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.
