Helping you achieve your education and career goals is our number one goal. Our supportive advising, and ease of credit transfer ensure you have options across the UW System and beyond.
*If you would like to change your location from UW-Eau Claire to UW-Eau Claire – Barron County, please see your advisor for more information.
You will be a strong candidate for admission if you maintained a 'C' average or higher (2.00 on a 4.00 scale) at your previous college(s). If your GPA is below 2.0, we will evaluate your application for admission through a holistic approach that takes into consideration not only your academic career to date, but your experiences outside of the classroom that highlight your drive and determination, compassion for others and ability to thrive here.
Please submit the following:
- One of the following two applications:
- UWEC-specific application
- UW System application (recommended if you want to apply to multiple UW System schools)
- $25 application fee - you are exempt from this fee if the last school you attended was a UW branch campus or UW College 2-year campus.
Note: If the fee is a financial hardship, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a fee waiver and explain the reason for your need (e.g. eligible for free and reduced lunch, income loss due to COVID-19, etc.).
- Official high school transcript (required for ALL transfer students)
- Official transcripts from each college or university you have attended
Note: If you’re a military member, submit Joint Service Transcript or Transcript for Community College of the Air Force.
