UW-River Falls supports these Articulation Agreements with community colleges, technical colleges, and universities to typically link the completion of technical degrees to specific programs at UW-River Falls with enhanced transfer of credit. For complete details of any of these agreements, contact your program adviser at your college or the UW-River Falls Admissions Office.
Additionally, River Falls grants credit based on a variety of exams, including Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP). UWRF does not award credit for these exams that have been recorded on a previous institution's transcript. The student should have the scores sent directly from the testing agency to River Falls.
River Falls will evaluate Military Transcripts for transfer credit. Generally, Military Credit is accepted for General Education requirements and other baccalaureate courses. Also, credit awarded for vocational/technical training or in a Military Occupational Specialty will not be accepted. In order to award credit we must have an official transcript sent.
To order your transcripts please follow the links below.
Credit may be awarded from regionally accredited institutions for courses that are non-remedial, non-technical, non-vocational, and non-doctrinal in nature. Credit from non-regionally accredited institutions may be reviewed by the appropriate department to determine appropriate application of transfer credits. A maximum of 72-credits can be accepted from two-year colleges. 30-credits must be complete at UW-River Falls (with 6-credits in the major and 3-credits in the minor).
