For transfer students from UW System institutions or from Wisconsin’s Technical Colleges, you may want to investigate how individual courses you've taken transfer to UW-Madison. Use the Transfer Information System (TIS) to determine course equivalency and how transferred courses satisfy the general education requirements at UW-Madison.  Additionally, you can utilize Transfer Plans to obtain an unofficial evaluation of how transfer courses will apply towards the requirements of a specific major or program at UW-Madison.

Note that individual schools and colleges may have general education requirements beyond the campus-wide requirements. Attention to these requirements is an important consideration and should be discussed with an advisor.

The individual concerns and questions of every transfer student may not be answered by using these web resources. You are encouraged to contact the Transfer Transition Program for assistance with advising questions. Returning adult or nontraditional students can also contact Adult Career and Special Student Services to explore career and/or degree pathways. Thanks again for your interest in UW-Madison!
