|Transfer Credit Evaluations
Official transfer credit evaluations will take place within the first two weeks of your admissions to a program. When you applied for admissions, you were required to submit official transcripts from each college or university attended (see details on How to Send Transcripts to the UW Flexible Option Admissions Office).
Transfer credit must be from a regional or national accrediting organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
You can review how your credit may transfer by using the following databases:
Students attending UW-Milwaukee can use the Internal Transfer Lookup to determine how coursework completed in one undergraduate career (Associate Degree Programs, UW Flex Programs, Bachelor’s Degree Programs) will internally transfer to another. Official results will be determined by the Registrar’s Office upon acceptance to the student’s desired program.
Most University of Wisconsin System campuses require students to complete a specific number of credits “in residence” to earn a degree or certificate. “Resident credits” are credits earned from the campus granting the degree or certificate. Transfer students are responsible for fulfilling residency requirements of their home campus.
