Transfer Policies

Transfer students who have an interest in pursuing a degree with a business related major should meet with the College of Business, Economics, and Computing (CBEC) academic advisor as early as possible to go over the transfer course evaluation and prerequisites.

Transfer students may fulfill some of the requirements for the business department majors at UW-Parkside by transferring appropriate courses taken elsewhere (check with the CBEC academic advisor). However, all students must complete at UW- Parkside at least 50 percent of the total business department credits required for the bachelor of science degree with majors in accounting, business management, management information systems or marketing. The total business department credits include the business preparation courses, the business foundation core courses, and the major courses. No more than 50 percent of the required credits for a major may be transferred. Only courses with a grade of C or better will be accepted (C-minus is not acceptable) to fulfill a major requirement. Only junior/senior level courses in business from regionally accredited four-year colleges or universities are eligible to be transferred for any 300 - 400 level course in business. Students should work with the CBEC academic advisor and any such transfer credit should be approved by the associate dean.

Students transferring from non-baccalaureate institutions to Parkside may generally transfer up to 72 credits earned at non-baccalaureate institutions toward the 120 credits required for degree completion. UW-Parkside may accept additional credits toward the degree where appropriate. A minimum of 15 credits numbered 300 or above must be completed at Parkside
