Have you earned credit in another program, school or the U.S. military? The Distance Learning Center will evaluate your transcripts for eligible transfer credits.
The UW-Platteville Registrar’s office evaluates all military education and training for degree-seeking students. If you are a veteran who has served in the regular armed forces for more than one year, you should submit a copy of your DD214 for review and evaluation. You should also request official transcripts and documentation if you have attended one or more military schools. Most formal courses offered by the regular Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy and Department of Defense starting with 1972 have been evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE). Credit may be allowed for specific courses in appropriate curricula as recommended by ACE.
For additional information contact the School Veteran Official in the Registrar’s Office at 608.342.1321.
If the American Council on Education (ACE) has evaluated a corporate or professional training program in which you participated, you may receive transfer credit. Only the ACE recommendations that are related directly to the business administration major will be considered for transfer. Normally, because training programs are so specific to the industry, such credits transfer as business electives. You must request an official transcript from ACE be sent directly to the Distance Learning Center to have your credits reviewed.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES), United States Armed Forces Institute (USAFI) subject examinations, and College Board Advanced Placement Examinations may be reviewed for possible credit.
See Required CLEP Exam Scores and Advanced Placement Credits. Both CLEP and AP are found on pages 13-18.
The maximum number of credits applicable to the major by external or internal examinations is 30 credits. If you have already taken any of these examinations, you must provide an official transcript for each. After review by UW-Platteville, you will be informed regarding transfer credits accepted.
If you believe you have proficiency in a specific course, you may be able to test out of it. Test-out costs and procedures are determined by individual departments. The maximum number of credits applicable to the business major earned by internal or external examinations is 30 credits.
No student may test out of a course that is a prerequisite, stated or implied, for an advanced course in the same subject for which credits have already been earned. Only students who are officially enrolled at UW-Platteville may participate in departmental test-out examinations. Contact your academic advisor to discuss any questions regarding testing out of a course.
