April 17, 2023

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater announces its commitment to students from Cardinal Stritch University who are impacted by the institution’s announced closure in May.

“Our hearts go out to the students, faculty and staff of Cardinal Stritch University. The closing of the campus is unfortunate, and members of the community are understandably deeply affected,” said Corey King, UW-Whitewater chancellor. “As the leader of a university that also feels like a close-knit family, I want members of Cardinal Stritch University to know that we are here for you. For those who feel UW-Whitewater would be the right fit to continue their higher education journey, we are standing ready to support and welcome you.”

UW-Whitewater admissions staff will participate in Cardinal Stritch’s general transfer fair on Friday, April 21, at the Kliebhan Conference Center. In addition, UW-Whitewater will hold virtual open house sessions for Cardinal Stritch students on April 19 or April 21.

UW-Whitewater is guaranteeing the following to Cardinal Stritch students looking to transfer:

  • Tailored application and transfer credit review process
  • Dedicated advisor for transfer admission
  • No-cost orientation for undergraduate students
  • No-cost application for graduate students

“We are already engaging with students who have questions about transferring to UW-Whitewater and want to learn more about our academic programs,” said John Chenoweth, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs. “Our university has long been known as one of the most welcoming and accommodating homes for transfer students. No matter when you join the Warhawk family, we are passionate about student success and will do everything we can to make the process seamless for those who choose to transfer here.”

In addition to in-person instruction, UW-Whitewater has offered 100% online courses since 1998. Students who transfer from Cardinal Stritch may have the opportunity to complete their degrees fully online, depending on their program or major.
