Transfer to UW-Milwaukee, Main Campus

You’re already a Panther, so it will be easy for you to transfer to our Milwaukee location! Just review the outlined steps below. 

  • Submit the Panther Transition Form the semester before you intend to transfer. Students will need to login to this form using their ePantherID and password.  
  • Want to start in the fall semester (September)? The form is available starting a year prior from September to August.  
  • Want to start in the spring semester (January)? The form is available starting May through December. 
  • Utilize the Internal Transfer Lookup to see how your credits will transfer from one UWM campus location to the other. 

Branch campus students under 21 transferring to the Milwaukee campus will automatically be granted a Housing contract 1-2 weeks after admission. Students will receive an email once given a contract. If you’re over 21 and want to live in university housing, or it’s been 2 weeks after your admission and you have not received an email with contract access, fill out this form.

Unsure Which UWM Campus To Attend?

Did you apply to a UWM campus but want to switch to a different UWM campus? If it’s before classes have started for the semester, you can make a campus change request. Just complete the short form herePlease note that if you were denied admission to the UW-Milwaukee campus, this form will not be processed. 

Are you planning to transfer to a UWM campus after already attending classes at another UWM location? Apply to transfer the semester before.
