Transfer credit is awarded for college-level coursework completed at institutions accredited by a regional or national accrediting organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Foreign institutions must be recognized by the Ministry of Education in that country.
Courses must be similar in nature, level, and content to a course in our undergraduate curriculum and applicable to one of our academic programs. Courses completed at other colleges or universities that have descriptions closely matching the descriptions of courses taught at the home campus will generally transfer as direct course equivalents. Continuing education courses, graduate-level courses, and courses that are remedial, technical, vocational, or doctrinal in nature are not transferable.
If you have completed coursework at a University of Wisconsin (UW) or Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) campus, you can evaluate how your credits might transfer to your UW Sustainable Management home campus by visiting Transfer Wisconsin.
Although the UW Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Management requires an associate degree or approximately 60 credits of transferable college credit, plus prerequisite coursework, if you have less than 60 credits, we still encourage you to request information about the program. It may be possible to satisfy the credit requirements concurrent with foundational courses in the program. Contact an enrollment adviser by phone, 1-877-895-3276, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, to be connected with the Academic Director at your preferred “home” campus.
Once you have been admitted as a transfer student and confirm your intention to enroll, your “home” campus will conduct a complete credit evaluation. Total credits awarded to you may vary by campus.
If you are not sure whether you meet these requirements, or have additional questions about transfer credits, please contact an enrollment adviser.
