Advisors in the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare are happy to help you make the transition to UWM.

Prospective Students

As a prospective transfer student, you can request an unofficial transfer credit evaluation to see how many credits would transfer into our Social Work or Criminal Justice program.

Unofficial Credit Evaluation Request Form

Please contact Kate Masshardt with any questions. She will let you know what courses will transfer and walk you through the next steps in your application process.

Since this is an unofficial evaluation, not an application, credit counts may change once you officially apply to UWM. Once you are admitted, a transfer specialist in the Registrar’s Office will formally review your transcripts.

Admitted Students

As soon as you are admitted, you should meet with Kate Masshardt to review transfer course equivalencies, discuss program requirements, and create an academic plan for coming semesters.

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.
