Online Liberal Studies Admissions

Interested transfer students should first apply online for admission. For your application to be considered "complete" and ready for a decision, you'll need to also provide the following:

  1. Official copies of all post-secondary school transcripts sent by the institutions
  2. Official copies of your high school transcripts, including a graduation date
  3. Pay application fee*

To qualify** as a transfer student you must have:

  1. Completed at least 12 credits that will transfer to UW-Whitewater
  2. Earned a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher (based on a 4.0 scale)

*The application fee is not required if your last institution attended was a 2-year, UW College campus.

**Students who do not have 12 or more transferable credits will be evaluated for admission using their high school credentials, including an ACT/SAT test score, in conjunction with their existing transfer work to determine admissibility.

There are no additional admission requirements to declare an online major in Liberal Studies or Political Science.
