Transfer Students


Credit Evaluation

Official credit evaluations are started after all transcripts have arrived at UW-Green Bay and the student has been admitted; the final official evaluation is held until a final transcript showing grades from the last term and any degrees earned is received.

Transferable Coursework

Credit is awarded for college-level course work completed at institutions accredited by a regional or national accrediting organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Courses must be similar in nature, level, and content to a course in our undergraduate curriculum and applicable to a UW-Green Bay academic program.

Foreign institutions must be recognized by the Ministry of Education in that country. To receive credit for courses that you have taken at another college or university outside the United States, you must submit your academic records to a professional evaluation service currently recognized by NACES for review. UW-Green Bay recommends one of the following evaluation services:

Continuing education courses or units, graduate-level courses, and courses that are remedial, technical, vocational, or doctrinal in nature are not transferable for undergraduate students.
