Policy for On-Campus Transfer into CALS
On-Campus Transfer into CALS
Students will be considered for transfer to the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences from other schools and colleges at UW–Madison if they
- are in good academic standing with the college or school in which they are enrolled,
- meet any special requirements as specified by the intended major, and
- have earned fewer than 86 credits, which is the threshold for senior status.
Students who have been dropped by another college or school must be readmitted to that college or school before being considered for transfer into the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. However, being readmitted for transfer purposes by another school or college does not guarantee acceptance by CALS.
Ideally, the transfer should be initiated in advance of the semester in which enrollment is planned. Students may initiate the transfer process at any time during the semester. However, the registrar's office determines when transfers may be completed; this window generally is open from approximately the second through the twelfth week of classes. Students may transfer during the summer session only if they are enrolled in summer courses. Consult the Office of Academic Affairs for details.
