Transfer Students

Transfer Student Orientation

Congratulations on being admitted to UW-Eau Claire! We are excited to officially welcome you to the Blugold family. Below you'll find some resources and important information to help you acclimate to UWEC.

To do:

1. Activate your UW-Eau Claire account.

If you have not activated your UW-Eau Claire account, or need to reset your password, visit myusername.uwec.edu. You will need your username and Campus ID, which can be found in your admit letter or application acknowledgment email.

2. Complete placement testing if necessary.

Transfer students will be notified by their Advising Retention and Career Center (ARCC) advisor if placement tests are needed. Should it be determined that you need to complete Placement tests, more detailed information on the transfer student testing process can be found here.

3. Complete a transfer registration appointment.

All transfer students are required to complete a transfer registration 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.

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.
