Whether you started at a community college, technical school or other four-year institution, you are a transfer student. Let our staff take a look at your credits and see how they apply to earning your degree at UW-Stevens Point.

Transfer applicants will be considered for admission to the University based on the following admission standards*. Standards may be adjusted based on the number of applications we receive and transfer enrollment limits.

UW-Stevens Point does not have a specific application deadline. Applicants are permitted to enroll if they apply, are accepted and confirm enrollment before the transfer enrollment limit is reached.

Priority for admission will be given to applicants in the following two categories:

  1. Transfers with a cumulative grade point average of 2.25 or higher.
  2. Transfers from the UW Colleges (two-year campuses), MATC-Madison, MATC-Milwaukee, or Nicolet College with 54 transferable credits and a 2.00 or higher cumulative grade point average.Transfers with a cumulative grade point average of 2.00-2.24 will be considered for admission on an individual basis.

*Please note, certain majors require grade point averages higher than a 2.0. 

If you are a current UW-Stevens Point student and want to transition to a different UW-Stevens Point campus (Stevens Point, Marshfield, Wausau) you will submit the Campus/Degree Program Transition Form located in the Forms tile from your homepage in accesSPoint.

The Admission Office at UW-Stevens Point determines whether credits earned at another institution will transfer to UW-Stevens Point and how those credits will apply toward UW-Stevens Point general degree requirements. Please note the following general policies regarding transfer credit:

  • We accept a maximum of 72 credits from two year colleges.
  • Generally, you will receive credit in courses for which you earned a D or higher. Credits must come from institutions that are accredited by a regional or national accrediting organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Courses must be similar in nature, level, and content to course work in our undergraduate curriculum. Continuing education course and courses that are remedial, technical, vocational, or doctrinal in nature are not transferable.
  • The appropriate academic department will determine which credits apply to your major or minor*.
  • Credits transferred from other institutions are not used in calculating UW-Stevens Point grade point average. The UW-Stevens Point grade point average is determined only by credits and grade point earned at UW-Stevens Point. However, transfer credits and grades are included in the calculation of the grade point average in most majors and minors and in the determination of graduation honors.
  • To graduate from UW-Stevens Point, you must earn at least 30 of the total number of credits required for graduation in residence at UW-Stevens Point.
  • Information on Military Credit.
  • For more information on Transfer Credit, please refer to the UW-Stevens Point Course Catalog.

*Please note, certain majors require grade point averages higher than a 2.0.
