Transferring to UW-Madison

UW-Madison offers many resources for transfer students.  Transfer Admissions, in the Office of Admissions and Recruitment, provides information to students about the transfer process, transfer credits, and requirements for transferring to UW-Madison.  For newly admitted transfer students, the Transfer Transition Program offers abundant ways for new students to connect with current students and the community to create your own Wisconsin Experience.

Advising for Transfer Students  

We are happy to meet with prospective transfer students to discuss the psychology major during non-peak advising.  Peak advising occurs during the first two weeks of each semester and during registration time (during the months of March/April and October/November). We require a minimum of two weeks advanced notice to schedule an appointment.

Current UW-Madison transfer students majoring in psychology can Schedule an Appointment with an Undergraduate Advisor.
