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 credit evaluation to see how many credits would transfer into our Social Work or Criminal Justice program.

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.

An unofficial evaluation will give you an estimate of transferrable credits. Once you are admitted, a transfer specialist in the Registrar’s Office will formally review your transcripts resulting in the exact count of credits accepted for transfer. This final count could be slightly different than the original estimate we provide.

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 a student’s previous coursework for UWM equivalencies. Please 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.
