At UW we want to make transferring your credits as easy as possible. Generally, all college-level courses from regionally accredited colleges and universities will transfer to UW, while remedial courses and most vocational courses will not. Your college grade point average prior to attending UW will determine whether or not you are admissible and will be used for scholarship decisions. After you have completed your transfer, your UW GPA will be based solely on your UW courses.
Your UW department will determine the acceptance of transfer courses towards your specific major and decide whether courses with "D" grades will count toward completing your degree requirements. If you're transferring to UW from one of Wyoming's community colleges, common course numbering for similar freshman and sophomore courses makes it easy to see exactly how your courses will apply toward a UW degree program.

Evaluation of Transcripts
Evaluation of your transfer credit may take some time. Remember, your credits are not evaluated until your admissions file is complete and an admissions decision has been made. If you would like more information about your credit evaluation, the Registrar's Office can help.
