Transfer students

Welcome to UWL!




1. If you have not already done so, pay your $100 enrollment deposit. Your transfer credit evaluation will then be completed and you will be able to view your transfer credit evaluation in your WINGS Student Center. Your transfer credit report will typically be available within 2 weeks of receiving your enrollment deposit. You will receive an email notification when the evaluation of your credits is complete.

  • Do it right away!

2. After the evaluation is complete, call the CLS Academic Services Office, 608.785.5454, to schedule a face-to-face or phone appointment. During your appointment your advisor will:
