Upon admission, the UWM Registrar’s Office will evaluate and apply a student’s previous coursework (allow two to four weeks for this process). A student who transfers from a campus within the UW System or the Wisconsin Technical College System can transfer up to 72 credits toward a degree in the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare.

Students transferring from a school within the UW System or the Wisconsin Technical College System can learn how credits may transfer by using the Online Transfer Wizard.

Students transferring from other two- or four-year colleges can evaluate transfer equivalencies by visiting UWM’s Transfer Equivalency Database in the Registrar’s Office.

As soon as they are admitted, transfer students should meet with an academic advisor in the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare to review transfer course equivalencies, discuss program requirements, and create an academic plan for coming semesters.
