Congratulations on being admitted to UW-Stevens Point! Check out the following links for information on what comes next and about the resources that will be available to you as a UW-Stevens Point student.​​

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. 

We strongly recommend that you login to Transferology for timely and accurate information on course equivalencies between the UW College campuses, Wisconsin Technical Colleges and UW-Stevens Point.

Join the Pack Program

Join the Pack is a summer bridge program for students transferring to UWSP that is jointly run by the Tutoring-Learning Center and Treehaven, with collaboration with Admissions and Recruitment. Join the Pack is a free program designed to provide a supportive community that promotes student success for UWSP transfer students. The program focuses on connecting the participants to campus resources, leadership opportunities, and community resources. Each participant has their own upper-level mentor for the first eight weeks of the fall semester. The mentor can help answer questions and help them get connected to opportunities of interest.

Join the Pack includes the following:

  1. Access to a social media group that will provide you with timely information to help you prepare for your transition to UWSP.
  2. An assigned mentor to answer any questions that you have as you get ready for your transition to UWSP. If you don’t have any questions, there is no need to communicate with the mentor during this time, but they are there if you need them.
  3. A three day adventure at Treehaven (an Environmental Resource Center) from 8/28/22 to the morning of 8/31/22 – where we will stay in dormitories (each room has its own bathroom and shower), make friends, and learn the secrets to success at UWSP! Even though we are at an environmental station, there is still internet access (along with a pond with kayaks, campfires, volleyball nets, a basketball area, hiking trails…)
  4. A one-day Transfer Student STAR (UWSP Orientation) on the UWSP campus in Stevens Point on August 31, 2022.
  5. A special, credited, 8-week class with your mentor and the program director. This class is exclusively for program participants and a cool added feature is that the participants get to choose the topics that will be included in the class during the 3-day adventure at Treehaven. This class is for your benefit and is, therefore, going to be designed with your interests in mind!

Join the Pack Participation Benefits:

  1. Access to information to prepare you for your transition to UWSP.
  2. Treehaven Adventure Experience (food and lodging is covered for all participants)
  3. Students who have participated in Tutoring-Learning Center (TLC) summer bridge programs have consistently outperformed their peers in academic performance (GPA) and in progress toward their degrees!

“I was nervous about transferring to UWSP. Pursuing a new degree path and coming out of a gap semester, would my transition be smooth? But my new Pointer family surprised me! From academic counselors ensuring that my previous credits transferred and that I was taking the right classes to professors introducing me to my new classmates, the Pointer family has been with me every step of the way to ensure my success. ”
