Office of Student Affairs
Thank you for your interest in the College of Health Sciences at UWM! Please carefully review the information listed on this site, and feel free to contact us with questions. We look forward to working with you to achieve your academic and career goals.
Prospective transfer students are strongly encouraged to apply to UWM well in advance of the application deadline to allow plenty of time for transfer coursework to be evaluated.
Students who transfer to UWM are subject to the program requirements at the time of admission.
The UWM Department of Admissions will evaluate a student’s transfer coursework upon admission. The Department of Admissions requires approximately 2-4 weeks to evaluate transfer coursework and apply it to a student's UWM transcript. Academic advisors are not able to see transfer coursework before this step has been completed by the Department of Admissions.
Transfer students are strongly encouraged to meet with the academic advisor for their intended program as soon as possible upon admission to review transfer course equivalencies, discuss program requirements, and create an academic plan for the coming semesters.
Each program within CHS may allow course substitutions for program requirements. As a result, it is critical for transfer students to meet with an academic advisor to review the UWM transfer course evaluation. In addition, some programs have policies related to the time in which coursework is completed (for example, transfer coursework beyond X number of years will not be allowed to satisfy major requirements).
Prospective transfer students are welcome to schedule advising appointments to address questions related to transfer work and duration of study at UWM by calling (414) 229-2758 or visiting Merrill Hall, Room 115. Please bring a copy of your unofficial transcript to your first appointment.
Students considering a transfer to UWM from a UW System school or a Wisconsin Technical College are strongly encouraged to use the Transfer Wizard to determine how courses will transfer prior to meeting with an academic advisor.
