To be considered for transfer admission
While academic preparation is the primary criterion used in the admissions review process, we consider other nonacademic secondary factors that may contribute to the strength of an application, including demonstrated leadership, extracurricular involvement, special talent, personal statement, recommendations, or adding a diverse dimension to our campus community.
A student who holds one bachelor's degree may be admitted to the university to earn a second bachelor's degree. Each applicant must complete the UW System application and have one official transcript sent from each university attended. Questions about earning a second bachelor's degree at UW-La Crosse should be directed to the Transfer Admissions Office. If you have been admitted as a second degree student, please visit the admitted second degree student page.
Application Filing Period:
NOTE: UWL does not have an application deadline. When we have reached the maximum number of students we can enroll for a given term, admission will close. We recommend that you apply for admission as soon as possible.

When will you receive an admissions decision?

How will your college credits transfer?
An official credit evaluation is performed after admittance to the University and completion of next steps as noted in admissions packet.
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.
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. For questions about scheduling and academic advising, please consult the Academic Advising Center's list of frequently asked questions.
Credit is generally 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.
