Students cannot apply coursework as a second bachelor's degree candidate toward a graduate degree. Please consult your intended graduate program prior to applying if this is your intention.



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 UW department will determine the acceptance of transfer courses towards your specific degree.

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.
