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 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.

You will meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for your first semester.  If you are coming for the spring semester, you will meet with your advisor between October and January.  If you are coming for the fall, you will meet with an advisor between the months of April and August.

Once you have been admitted to UW-Eau Claire, you will receive specific information from the Advising, Retention + Career Center regarding your transfer registration appointment.  Transfer registration appointments are flexible, with remote and in-person options available.  Students who have paid their enrollment deposit will be invited make an appointment on a first-come, first-serve basis.

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.
