Transfer Information System (TIS)
Many UW-Whitewater students choose to take courses at other schools and transfer the credits into their UW-W program of study. The University of Wisconsin System developed a computerized course equivalency matrix which provides transfer information for all UW and WTC institutions. The Transfer Information System (TIS) enables students to determine how courses transfer between the UW Colleges and other UW System institutions.
Although the information is intended to be current and accurate, it should not be considered a contract or a substitute for advising and admission requirements. Students are advised to periodically refer to TIS for updated information.

Transfer Students at UW-Whitewater
Credit may be transferred to UW-Whitewater if the grade earned in the course at the previous institution is recognized as a passing grade (D or better) and the course parallels work offered at UW-Whitewater. Students may repeat courses transferred to UW-Whitewater from other post-secondary institutions subject to UW-Whitewater's repeat policy.
Students who feel that an adjustment in an evaluation is necessary should contact the Admissions Office. Any adjustment in the credit evaluation must be requested within one year of the date of UW-W enrollment.
Transfer students begin a new resident GPA when they enroll at UW-Whitewater. However, the transfer GPA is still applicable, since it is combined with the resident GPA to form the combined GPA. The combined GPA is used:
- To determine eligibility for graduation: at minimum a 2.0 total is required (some majors require a higher GPA).
- For acceptance into certain programs and courses, including Education and Business.
