Transfer and background checks

For students who are transferring to other universities or participating in a Study Abroad experience, verification of attendance or good standing is often required. Please bring forms to the CSSC office in Schmitz Hall Room 447. Disciplinary records will not be released without a student’s written permission so please sign any forms in blue or black ink.

Community standards

UW students are good neighbors. CSSC works with students living in the North of 45th Neighborhood area, along with year-round residents of University Park, to ensure that a safe and respectful neighborhood environment is created for all who live there. Check out the living off campus section for more information about being a good neighbor.
