2015-17 UW Colleges Transfer Guide
Geography
Bachelor of Science (BS)
College of Letters & Science
The following guide is intended to assist you in planning for your eventual transfer to and graduation from
UW Oshkosh. This guide includes only the requirements that can be completed at the UW Colleges. It is not
a requirement, nor always advisable, to complete all courses listed in this guide prior to transfer. For a full list
of requirements refer to the additional resources included in the pages below. Note that this guide is an
advisory tool only and subject to change.
UW OSHKOSH ADMISSION
Submit the UW System application, available online at: http://apply.wisconsin.edu.
Send official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended.
Send official high school transcripts if fewer than 30 transferable college credits have been earned.
UNIVERSITY STUDIES PROGRAM & DEGREE REQUIREMENTS
Students who transfer with the Associate of Arts and Science degree will have met the University Studies Program (USP) or
general education requirements, but NOT necessarily the degree requirements for the BS. The requirements are combined in
this guide to help illustrate the most efficient course selections.
AAS – Indicates a course or requirement where the Associate of Arts and Science degree and the UWO
Oshkosh requirements overlap.

NOTES
University Studies Program (USP)
The University Studies Program (USP) is the new definition of general education at UW Oshkosh, designed to help students reap
the maximum benefits from their college education. Transfer students will participate in USP at varying degrees based upon the
number of credits transferred into the university.
0-14 Credits –
You’re still considered a first-year student and will be able to participate in all USP Quest and Connect
courses. Any courses you’ve taken previously will continue to transfer to UW Oshkosh, but the names of
courses or course categories may differ slightly.
15-59 Credits – To help you get situated on campus you’ll engage in a Transition Year Experience. This will help you
learn what UWO has to offer, show you what resources are available and introduce you to new people.
5
Updated 9/2/2016
60+ Credits –
Because you have more than 60 credits, you are not required to take the Quest sequence of courses or
the Transition Year Experience. Admissions will determine which courses transfer and identify any
courses you may need to complete.
If you’ve already completed an approved associate degree, your USP requirements are automatically
fulfilled.
Please note that in addition to USP requirements, you are responsible for specific requirements related
to your major, minor (if any) and degree. Transfer counselors or academic advisers will assist you along
the way in understanding these requirements.
Other Notes

In a few instances, courses are designated differently at the UW Colleges than they are at UWO in terms of general
education (i.e. HU becomes SS in transfer). In these instances the student can often choose to accept the UWO
designation, or have the UWC designation honored. Changes cannot be made until after UWO admission, and it is
always best to discuss these changes with an academic advisor first.

The official UW Oshkosh GPA will be calculated using only UW Oshkosh credits earned. Credits transferred to UW
Oshkosh are recognized, but the grades are not included in the official UW Oshkosh GPA. For various university-level
honors designations students will have to earn at least 60 credits at UW Oshkosh and only those Oshkosh grades are
considered. The official transcript will display the official UW Oshkosh GPA, UW Oshkosh course work and transfer
course grades that will not be included in the official UW Oshkosh GPA.

The UW Colleges made changes to several departments, effective January 1, 2012. The current departments are listed
on this guide with the previous departments and course numbers in ( ).
