In 2014, Lawrence University and the University of Wisconsin colleges entered into a partnership designed to facilitate the transfer from the two-year college system of students wishing to pursue a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Music degree at Lawrence University.  We believe that these transfer students from local institutions help to strengthen our bonds with the community in which we live and bring different experiences and perspectives to academic work.

Resources for Admitted Students

Once you have been admitted to Lawrence—usually in the spring preceding your matriculation into the university—you will be assigned an advisor with whom you are encouraged to communicate about your future coursework at Lawrence, the major or majors you are considering, and the requirements, whether general education or major, that you will need to fulfill to make good progress to your degree.

For students entering Lawrence in the fall, a special orientation for transfer students will be offered during Welcome Week, before first term classes begin. Transfer students will also have the opportunity to register before freshmen students register.
