Not Sure If You're a Transfer Student?

A transfer student is anyone who has attended another college or university after graduating high school with the exception of those students who take classes the summer immediately following graduation and attend UW-Stout the next Fall semester. We know you’ll likely have questions about Stout, our community, and how your existing credits will transfer. UW-Stout Transfer Admissions is always here to answer your questions as you look to join our vibrant transfer community!
