Transfer Students

We are excited that you are interested in transferring to UW-Whitewater for a program in the College of Education and Professional Studies! We understand that transferring is a big decision, and we want to make that decision easier by assisting you with any questions you may have about our programs. We encourage prospective transfer students for our programs to contact the Advising Coordinator in the College of Education and Professional Studies prior to transferring.

All transfer students must attend Plan-It Purple, UW-Whitewater's Orientation/Advising/Registration program. At this program, you will meet with representatives from the College of Education and Professional Studies, including an academic advisor. You will also select and register in courses for your upcoming semester. This is an important and informative program to start your success at UW-Whitewater.
