Check out our Transfer Checklist page for transfer information to help manage your transfer process.

Use Transferology to see how courses transfer between Universities of Wisconsin universities, Wisconsin Technical Colleges, and Wisconsin Tribal College.

If you are transferring to a UW university and know your intended major, check out the articulation agreements. Articulation agreements guarantee credit transfer from the completion of a Wisconsin Technical College degree or certificate program to a specific UW university and major.

If you are  unsure of your intended major or unsure of the UW you will transfer to, check out the Universal Credit Transfer Agreement (UCTA). This agreement provides a set of courses that are transferable between all Wisconsin Technical Colleges and UW universities. Courses within the UCTA satisfy general education requirements at all UW universities.

Are you transferring to a UW university, know your intended major, but plan to transfer before completing an associate degree? There may be a transfer guide to help you plan for successful transfer.

A transfer guide shows the required courses for a UW major and the equivalent courses that transfer from a Wisconsin Technical College. Transfer guides are NOT guaranteed transfer agreements and not all programs have transfer guides.

We have several resources to help you Find Your UW.

UW HELP provides assistance with the application process through the Universities of Wisconsin online application, including what transcripts you will need to send, if there is an application fee, and more! The online application is for all Universities of Wisconsin universities.

You may be required to take a placement test before you can enroll at your new school. It will depend on where you are applying, how many credits you are transferring, and whether you have completed transferable coursework in math and/or English. If you are required to take placement tests, plan to take them as soon as possible to ensure you can register on time and for the appropriate classes.

If you are required to complete placement testing and do not, you might not be able to register for the classes you need for your degree.

For information about placement testing registration, go to the Regional Placement Testing website.
