The Office of Admissions and Recruitment processes all applications for undergraduate transfer admission.  Application deadlines are typically at the beginning of March for admission to the following fall term, and the beginning of October for admission to the following spring term.  Refer to the Admissions website for specific deadline dates and links to the applications. Transfer applicants may currently choose whether to use the Common Application or the UW System Application.


  • Once you have submitted your application, be sure you receive the acknowledgment email from Admissions. Then use the campus ID number they send you to activate your UW Net ID.  This will allow you to log into your UW student center, which is where you will receive all important communications from Admissions.
  • If you have questions about the application process, contact a transfer counselor. They’re very friendly and happy to answer questions. They can be reached at 608-262-3961 or via email at
