Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-Madison!

Whether you’re just starting to plan your transfer, are in the midst of the admissions process, or have newly joined the Badger ranks, the Transfer Transition Program is here for you.  Our transfer students are a very important part of our campus, and they make up a significant portion of our undergraduate student body.  You bring a host of diverse experiences, come from a wide range of institutions, and carry with you a unique set of strengths and a lot of transferable skills.  Our goal is to get to know you better, to help you get connected at UW-Madison, and to make sure you get the information and assistance you need to make your transition as easy as possible.

This website is meant to be a helpful resource regardless of what stage of transition you’re in. We encourage you to explore it.  Learn more about the pre-transfer academic advising we offer, check out first steps, campus resources, and tips from other transfer students, and take a look at our calendar of events for transfers in their first year.  And don’t forget to connect with us – on FacebookTwitter, or even via email.  We’re looking forward to seeing all that you can do as UW-Madison students, and to helping you make the most of your Wisconsin Experience.


On Wisconsin!
