Will My Credits Transfer?*

*When planning to take a math course at another college or university, it is advised that you get it pre-approved by the math department chair. If approved, the credits for the course will transfer and count towards your math requirement, but the grade will not be counted in your GPA. Repeated courses taken at another institution (including UW System) will not replace the F/D earned at UW-Platteville. For engineering majors, the grade earned at another institution will be used to calculate your Core GPA.
 

Core GPA

What is Core GPA and why is it important?

All engineering students must take a set of courses (listed below) to move from General Engineering to the major of your choice. Core GPA courses must be completed within 60 total credits of the semester you are enrolled in Calculus I. If you have not completed your core courses in that timeline and/or do not have the Core GPA met, you will be dismissed from General Engineering. You cannot be admitted into your major until this requirement is met. You may have to repeat courses to meet the required Core GPA.
