Business Administration Transfer Credits

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.

University, Community, and Technical College Transfer Credits

  • In most cases, college credits earned from two-year or four-year regionally accredited school will transfer, provided grades were a C or better and the credits are in areas currently taught at UW-Platteville.
  • An associate’s degree from a UW System institution or Illinois community college satisfies all UW-Platteville core curriculum requirements, as does a four-year bachelor’s degree from any regionally accredited college or university.
  • An associate's degree from select community and technical colleges will also fulfill the core curriculum requirements.
  • The number of credits transferrable from a Wisconsin technical college is limited. In some cases, it is possible to transfer up to 30 credits in core curriculum courses. Please check the business and criminal justice courses that will transfer to UW-Platteville from Wisconsin technical colleges. More credits may be accepted if UW-Platteville has an approved business or criminal justice articulation agreement with the institution.
  • Find out if your credits might transfer to UW-Platteville. Utilize the Credit Transfer Wizard (TIS) for UW System and/or Wisconsin Technical Colleges courses. Credits from Wisconsin private schools and/or out-of-state colleges, are found on Transfer Evaluation Systems (TES). If the course you are looking for does not appear in TIS or TES, it may not have been previously reviewed. An official evaluation will be done once your application for admission is complete.

Military Experience

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.

Training Programs

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.

Credit by Examination

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.

UW-Platteville Courses Test-Out

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.
