Transfer Credits

If the individual has previously taken graduate courses and would like to have them considered for transfer to a University of Wisconsin-Platteville graduate degree program, they must provide official transcript(s) from the institution(s) where the graduate credits were earned. The official transcripts should be sent to:

The following guidelines apply for transferring credits to graduate programs at the Univeristy of Wisconsin-Platteville:

  • To be accepted for transfer, credits must be approved by more than one faculty member in the relevant program along with the dean of the School of Graduate Studies. Faculty may be 1) the program's committee; or 2) some mix of the student's advisor, program head, and a faculty member with expertise in the field.
  • A maximum of 12 credits may be transferred to a master's program at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville (covers external and internal credits).
  • Credits may be transferred only from a nationally or regionally accredited institution recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
  • Students must complete their graduate program within seven years of being admitted to the program at University of Wisconsin-Platteville (extensions may be granted). Once credits have been accepted as transfer credits, they become part of the current program of study, and the seven-year limit is based on the date of admission into the program.
  • Only courses where the student received a grade of B- or higher will be accepted.
