Transfer Admission Requirements Spring 2024
Applies to: UW-Eau Claire, UW-Eau Claire – Barron County
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.
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. Please note that many programs have a competitive admissions process and admission to UWEC does not guarantee admission to a specific major.
