Are you planning to transfer to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Online? If so, I would like to lend a few tips to help your transition goes as smooth as possible.
  • Deadlines
    • Pay attention to them as they go fast. They were designed to help keep you on track and assist in your successfulness. You’ll see there are deadlines for application submission, class registration, payments, and the list go on. Write them down so you don’t forget. For a list of important deadlines and happenings, see our Important Dates webpage.
  • Transfer credits
    • Be prompt in having official transcripts sent from all the institutions where you’ve taken classes.
    • Recognize that some credits will not transfer in or may only transfer in as electives. For example, we don’t offer an aviation program, so regardless of how rigorous those classes were; there aren’t any equivalents at UWP.
    • Do your homework and be aware of each program’s admission requirements.
  • Advisor
    • Advisors are here to help you be successful at UWP. Follow through with your advising sessions when they are scheduled and be prepared to discuss a plan for your education. Once you have a plan, you’ll have a clear idea of what classes to take each semester.
Transferring to another university is an exciting experience. Remember to enjoy the moment and keep moving forward with your education so you can reach your final goal of a degree. Having a college education will launch you into your next employment opportunity, a pay raise or plain new experiences!
