UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Faculty and college advisers, department chairs, and academic deans work with transfer students individually to help them best apply their credits. Prospective transfer students work with their advisers to make the pieces fit.
Easy-to-read transfer guides and articulation agreements:
Note: If your course is not listed in one of these credit transfer tools, it does NOT mean your credit won't transfer -- it may indicate the credit has not been evaluated yet. You will work with your adviser to transfer in credit that has not been evaluated. Credit exceptions are very common.
Credit can be earned based on a variety of exams. 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.
Military Credit is typically accepted for General Education requirements (Personal Health and Wellness area is often waived for Basic Training completion & Global Perspectives area may be waived for service overseas) and other baccalaureate courses. In order to award credit we must have an official transcript sent.
An official transfer credit evaluation will be prepared for you by the Registrar's Office upon admission. Credit from non-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 community and technical colleges. A minimum of 30 credits must be completed at UW-River Falls (with 6 credits in the major and 3 credits in the minor).
