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. Continuing education courses, graduate-level courses, and courses that are remedial, technical, vocational, or doctrinal in nature are not transferable.
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.
If you have completed coursework at a University of Wisconsin or Wisconsin Technical College System campus, you can visit Transfer Wisconsin and use a variety of tools to evaluate how your credits might transfer to your Sustainable Management home campus.
Maximizing Your Credit Transfer
Once you have been admitted as a transfer student and confirm your intention to enroll, your home campus will conduct a complete credit evaluation. Keep in mind that total credits awarded to you may vary by school. For this reason, it is generally recommended that you apply to at least two campuses offering the program. This way you will be able to get the most out of your credit transfer—and hopefully save yourself time and money in the long run!
Be sure to talk with an adviser who can help you through this process.
