A transfer student is anyone who has attended a college or university after graduating from high school and wishes to enroll in an undergraduate degree program at one of the Universities of Wisconsin. Transfer students are vital members of our UW universities. Our campuses are ready to help ease your transfer and support your success!

Through our Transfer Wisconsin resources, the Universities of Wisconsin help students learn how their college credits will transfer to a UW university degree.
