As an admitted transfer student, your next step is to submit a $100 enrollment deposit. Please follow the instructions as outlined in your admissions packet.

Note: Criteria such as number of schools attended and/or number of credits earned may extend time necessary to complete your transfer credit report.

Please click here for more information about our Transfer Credit Policies, including information
about Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Exam Program (CLEP), and
International Baccalaureate (IB) credits.
Credit is awarded for
college-level course work completed at institutions accredited by a regional or
national accrediting organization recognized by the Council for Higher
Education Accreditation (CHEA). (Foreign institutions must be recognized by the
Ministry of Education in that country.) Courses must be similar in nature,
level, and content to a course in our undergraduate curriculum and applicable
to one of our academic programs. Continuing education courses,
graduate-level courses, and courses that are remedial, technical, vocational,
or doctrinal in nature are not transferable.
If you are transferring
from one of the institutions listed below, we have developed course equivalency
tables to indicate how courses from various institutions will transfer to UW-La
Crosse and if there are any additional program transfer agreements in
place. We also encourage you to consult the Transfer Information System
to understand how courses from other UW System institutions and the Wisconsin
Technical College System may transfer to UW-La Crosse.
