Direct Transfer Admission
Students from another UW System school (both two- and four-year) or one of the Wisconsin Technical Colleges are eligible for admission to the Wisconsin School of Business in the same term they transfer to UW-Madison. For consideration, these students must complete an online Wisconsin BBA application during the spring semester. Applicants not accepted to UW-Madison are not eligible for business school admission.
Non-Direct Transfer Admission
Students transferring from a private college or university in Wisconsin or outside the state must complete a minimum of 12 credits IN RESIDENCE at UW-Madison, as well as Sophomore or Junior Admission Requirements to be eligible. In addition, students applying under this status will need to have achieved a total of 24 credits (including credits from UW-Madison and previous institution) to be considered eligible. These students may apply the first spring after their 12 credit in-residence requirement is fulfilled.
Transfer students who wish to apply to the Wisconsin BBA must apply by the time they accumulate 100 credits. The current courseload in the spring term in which the student applies will not be counted toward the 100 credits. If a student attempts to apply with more than 100 credits, the application system will not allow your application.
Transfer Credit Equivalency Systems
The following websites have been developed to assist with the transfer credit process. These resources will allow you to gain a better understanding of how certain classes and courses transfer into the UW-Madison credit system.
Transfer Information System (TIS)
In-state credit transfer service that allows students to research transfer credits from the UW-System and Wisconsin Technical College System: http://tis.uwsa.edu/. For more information on the Transfer Information System (TIS) UW Colleges to UW-Madison Transfer Planning Guide click here.
Please also reference the U-Select system linked here for in-depth credit transfer information to UW-Madison: http://tis.uwsa.edu/plans/
Transfer Equivalency Database (TED)
Out of state transfer credit system that allows students to research transfer credits from select schools and colleges outside the state of Wisconsin. http://www.admissions.wisc.edu/transfer/ted/
The UW-Madison Office of Admissions determines official course equivalencies for transfer students. Transfer credit evaluations will be available to transfer students who are admitted to UW-Madison and who confirm their intent to enroll to campus.
