Ready for a change
The Badger Ready program provides insight, opportunity, and support for degree-seeking adults who may face barriers to completing an undergraduate degree.
This transitional program is for adults 25+ and veterans of any age who typically have a minimum of 24 credits from an accredited institution (*excluding UW–Madison) and a cumulative break in education of at least 2 years.
In partnership with the Office of Admissions and Recruitment, after successfully completing specific academic and program criteria, you can be admitted as a UW–Madison transfer student. These criteria will likely include, but are not limited to, the completion of at least 12 UW–Madison credits as a University Special student with a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA taken over the course of 2-4 semesters.
*former UW-Madison students wishing to complete their degree apply for reentry admission
