Tra​nsfer & Reentry Stu​dents

​Thank you for your interest in the Professional Education Program at UW-Stevens Point. Our staff in the School of Education Academic and Career Advising Center is happy to assist you with your transfer process. We encourage prospective transfer students to contact our office as soon as possible and stay in regular contact every semester prior to transferring.   

Preparing to Transfer 

Prospective transfer students should obtain a credit evaluation from the School of Education Academic and Career Advising Center in order to determine remaining coursework, Professional Education Program application requirements​, and required assessments. To request a credit evaluation, please email the following information to

  • unofficial copies of transcripts from every university, college or technical school attended.*
  • a list of current courses 
  • in the body of your email, please include your name, address, email address, phone number, and teaching major(s)/minor(s)​ you wish to pursue.

*If UW-Stevens Point was the last/only institution you attended, you can provide us with your UWSP student ID number instead of providing transcripts.

Individuals who are unable to email the information can send materials to SOE Academic and Career Advising Center, 469 College of Professional Studies, Stevens Point, WI 54481.

Credit evaluation requests will be processed within two weeks of receipt. A School of Education adviser will provide prospective students with a summary of credits remaining, a curriculum planning sheet indicating courses already completed and Professional Education Program application materials. After reviewing the materials, prospective transfer students are strongly encouraged to meet with a School of Education adviser to review the credit evaluation and plan for the future. Appointments can be made by calling the School of Education Academic and Career Advising Center, 715-346-2040.  

In addition to obtaining a free credit evaluation, prospective transfer students have access to program guides through the Transfer Information System (TIS)​. These guides provide planning sheets with course equivalencies for UW Colleges, Nicolet College, and Wisconsin Technical Colleges.

Visit Campus

​There is nothing quite like a campus visit. It is the best way to discover why so many students think UW-Stevens Point is the ideal fit. Campus visits can be scheduled through the Office of Admissions​. Prospective transfer students who have completed a credit evaluation are also encouraged to meet with a School of Education adviser during their visit to campus. Adviser visits can be scheduled by calling the School of Education Academic and Career Advising Center, 715-346-2040.

Apply early to UW-Stevens Point

The School of Education advising staff recommends applying to UW-Stevens Point​ 7-9 months prior to transferring.

​Attend Transfer Student Transition, Advising and Registration (STAR)
