All students, no matter which school or college they wish to study in, apply to the University of Wisconsin and are divided into their individual colleges after admission.

Current UW-Madison students who wish to declare a major in Ag & Applied Economics or Ag Business Management:

  • Print a DARS report for the major you wish to declare and bring it to the meeting.
  • After meeting with Linda and getting her signature on your transfer form, you will sign up for a transfer workshop to declare the major and finalize the transfer into the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences.  Students transferring into CALS need to attend a transfer workshop where they will discuss the advantages and opportunities associated with becoming a member of the CALS Community. Transfer workshops are held Mondays orTuesdays at 3:30 pm, during the fall and spring semesters, in the Academic Affairs Office, 116 Agricultural Hall. Workshops run from the second week of the semester until three weeks before the end of the semester. The workshop will last no more than one hour and you should come with your signed major declaration forn and a DARS report for the major you plan to declare. Space is limited, and "walk-ins" are not guaranteed a seat. Information on the dates of the workshops and a link to sign up can be found here.
