1. What type of applicant are you?
When you apply for admission to a University of Wisconsin institution, you will be asked to choose one of these categories:
- New Freshman/New Student
A degree-seeking undergraduate who is enrolling for the first time and is not transferring credits from any other institution. All new degree-seeking undergraduate students, whether or not they are freshmen by classification/credits, are categorized as new freshmen.
- Transfer student
A student who previously earned credits at another institution.
A student who had previously attended an institution, left for one or more semesters, and is returning to the same institution with transferable credits.
A student seeking a graduate degree (master’s, education specialist, clinical doctorate, or Ph.D.) or a professional practice student seeking a degree in medicine, pharmacy, law, or veterinary medicine, or a clinical doctorate degree.
- Special Student
A student who is enrolling in courses but is not enrolled in a degree program.
2. Will my credits transfer to a University of Wisconsin campus?
You may be able to receive transfer credit from previous academic work, and military coursework may be eligible for academic transfer credit. Check Transferology and talk with a UW transfer coordinator to get more information.
