Transfer Student Information
If you are interested in transferring to UW-L, contact the
Admissions Office for information
regarding the application process. For questions regarding how specific
course work will transfer to a College of Science and Health program,
contact Guy Herling or
Carla Burkhardt depending on the program of interest.
Information can also be found online for students that are transferring within the UW System or from the Wisconsin Technical College System. The course equivalencies available can be found on the Transfer Information System website. Grades from other institutions are not calculated into the UW-L grade point average; however professional programs may take the grades into consideration for admission.
Students often decide to take courses at other institutions during the various breaks throughout the year (such as winter intersession or summer). Prior to taking a course at another institution, complete the Off Campus Course Evaluation and Permit form in 228 Graff Main Hall before registering for the course. This will ensure that the course will transfer appropriately to UW-L and fulfill intended requirements. Note: Students may NOT REPEAT a course at another institution once it has been taken at UW-L.
Please contact the Office of the Dean with questions or concerns regarding transfer information. The office is located in 205 Graff Main Hall and the phone number is (608)785-8156.
