UW Transfers Make the WI Idea Happen.

Meet with a Transfer Student Coordinator

Transfer student coordinators (TSCs) are current UW-Madison students who have been through the transfer process before. TSCs can meet with you at any point in your transition such as before you transfer, once you’ve been accepted, and after you’ve enrolled. Transfer student coordinators are not professional advisors, and have limits on advising around degree pathways, course recommendations, and more.  See what transfer student coordinators can and cannot answer during an appointment in the accordion panel below.

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.

TSCs can...

Transfer student coordinators are current students at UW-Madison who transferred from other institutions.

TSCs can…

  • help you navigate resources available to you as a prospective, admitted, or enrolled transfer student.
  • give referrals to specific offices or people on campus who can guide you through detailed processes.
  • connect you to to involvement opportunities on campus.
  • explain campus culture and ways to make your transition to campus feel smoother.

Should I meet with a TSC or a Professional?

Transfer student coordinators are not professional advisors, and have limits on advising students.

Transfer student coordinators CANNOT give advice about degree pathways and requirements, course recommendations to prepare for transfer, and how courses you’ve taken could apply to a degree pathway at UW-Madison.

You should contact a professional staff member (listed below) if…

  • Degree requirements, including general education & breadth requirements
  • How the courses you’ve already taken might apply to your UW degree
  • Course selection in preparation for transfer

Ways to Connect with Professional Staff

If you are looking for information on the admissions process or admissibility to the university, we recommend making an appointment with a transfer counselor at the Office of Admissions: calendly.com/futurebadger/transfer-meeting

Additionally, some school and college advising offices have the capacity to work with prospective students.  A link to each of their websites is located in the Additional Resources section on the Prospective Students page.

Summer Break Scheduling

Currently you are unable to schedule directly with a TSC. We will get you connected to a transfer student peer as soon as possible. You can usually expect an email confirming your meeting 1-2 business days after you submit.
