Transfer Students

Come one, come all

We're thrilled to welcome you into the Blugold family! Every transfer student is required to complete a transfer orientation appointment before enrolling in classes. You’ll have the opportunity to meet your advisor, learn how your credits transfer to UW-Eau Claire and discuss other campus resources.

Sign up

Transfer admissions can be tricky because you can enroll in the spring or the fall. If you’re coming for the spring semester, you can choose an orientation offered between the months of November and January. If you're coming for the fall semester, you'll be able to attend one of the orientations between the months of April and August.

Transfer students can expect to hear more information about orientation appointments shortly after admission to UWEC.  Students should pay their enrollment deposit as soon as possible to ensure timely receipt of information regarding orientation.  

As a transfer student, and Eau Claire native, I already had a pretty good idea of how orientation worked. I still learned a lot of valuable information at orientation. The staff worked so hard to make me feel personally welcome and informed me about campus resources. I knew I already loved Eau Claire, but after orientation, I knew that I was going to love attending UWEC too.
