Certain undergraduate programs are highly selective and applicants must meet additional requirements for entrance into a program. Your letter of admission does not guarantee admission into any program of study.

Additionally, students who have graduated from a regionally accredited institution other than UW-La Crosse must meet all core, professional, and major requirements for the second degree, and earn at least 30 resident credits beyond the first degree. You will work with the appropriate individual identified above to determine program specific requirements.

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.
