Admissions qualifications

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:

  • $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 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.

This information should be sent to:

Credit transfer

An evaluation or official list of transferred credits will be prepared for you by the Admissions Office once you have been accepted. The credits you earned at an institution accredited by a regional or national accrediting organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education (CHEA) may be considered for transfer. A maximum of 72 credits will be accepted from two-year colleges, University of Wisconsin Colleges, Wisconsin Technical Colleges or other accredited junior colleges.
