Part of the Center for the First-Year Experience, the Transfer Transition Program was created in 2010 to support and improve the experience of transfer students at UW–Madison. We want every transfer student to have access to the resources they need for personal and academic success, to feel a sense of belonging, and to create their own unique Wisconsin Experience. We work towards this goal by shaping a campus environment that encourages and supports positive academic and social engagement. Whether you are preparing to transfer or have already enrolled at UW–Madison, the Transfer Transition Program can assist you in making the transition to becoming a UW student.

We are located at 155 William S Middleton Building, in the Center for the First-Year Experience office. You can reach us by phone at 608-890-4690, or via email at transfer@studentlife.wisc.edu

On August 31, 2012, incoming transfer students participate in a networking activity during a Transfer Student Retreat event at Witte Hall at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The event, which was hosted by the Student Transfer Association and Mentor Program (STAMP), was part of the Wisconsin Welcome orientation and new student program held at the beginning of each academic year.
