L&S On-Campus Transfer Request

The College of Letters & Science (L&S) welcomes current UW-Madison students with an established GPA to transfer into the College granted they meet certain requirements:

  • Continuing students must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA at UW-Madison and
  • A 2.0 in their most recent semester at UW-Madison, including summer term.

Please note: Only new freshmen (first-year students) and transfer students who do not have an established UW-Madison GPA may request to transfer into the College of Letters and Science during their first term on campus without an established GPA.

How to Transfer into L&S

Freshmen and sophomores (with 53 or fewer earned degree credits) and new students without an established GPA are required to attend a transfer workshop. To sign up for a transfer workshop (fall and spring semesters only), students must reserve a seat using the On Campus Transfer Workshop link. Select "Letters & Science Advising Services" in the OHRD Catalog and choose an On-Campus Transfer Workshop. All transfer workshops are held in room 120 Middleton Building at 1305 Linden Drive.

*There will be no transfer workshops held during Summer 2017.  Please contact transferstudents@ls.wisc.edu if you have need to meet with an advisor about transferring to L&S.
