Credit Transfer Information

Satisfying Requirements

with Coursework from Your Undergraduate Career at UW–Madison

For well-prepared advanced students, a student’s program may decide to accept up to seven credits from UW-Madison undergraduate coursework towards fulfillment of minimum graduate degree credit requirements. These credits must be numbered 300 or above required courses and must have been completed within the last five years.

However, this work would not be allowed to count toward the 50% graduate coursework minimum unless taken at the 700 level or above. This work will not appear on the graduate career portion of UW–Madison transcript nor count towards the graduate career GPA. The Graduate School’s minimum graduate residence credit requirement can be satisfied only with courses taken as a graduate student at UW–Madison.
