Welcome to UW-La Crosse!

Below are resources that transfer students may find helpful, including information from UWL's Admissions Office on applying and transferring credit, the UW System's transfer policy and information about transferring credit within the UW System, and information about Transferology, a helpful online tool to view which courses transfer to UWL from other schools.

Application process & credit transfer expanding section

The Admissions office has more information about how to apply and general education equivalency guides to indicate how courses from various institutions will transfer. 

Transfer Wisconsin and UW System transfer policy expanding section

Transfer Wisconsin has additional transfer student resources, plus a summary of the System transfer policy. Transfer Wisconsin is maintained by the University of Wisconsin System. It is the result of a collaborative effort by UW System and Wisconsin Technical College System to help students transfer between all public, post-secondary institutions in the State of Wisconsin.

The full University of Wisconsin System's Undergraduate Transfer Policy can be viewed here.

Each UW System institution has developed an appeal process that allows students to appeal credit evaluation decisions. If a student disagrees with a decision made in transferring a particular course, the student should contact the office that provided that evaluation to initiate an appeal. In most cases this will be the admission office, but some campuses may have designated another office to handle incoming transfer students.
