Once official transcripts from all previously attended institutions have been received by WGU, a transcript evaluation is conducted. Note that transcripts must be sent to WGU directly from the issuing institution to be considered official. WGU does not perform unofficial evaluations or accept unofficial transcripts. The transfer guidelines (please see the links provided at the bottom of this article) provide a good indication of expected transfer credit. Official transcript evaluations occur in the month prior to student start dates and are performed in the order they are received. Students cannot begin their program until WGU receives all official transcripts from all previously attended institutions. We do not award transfer credit for transcripts received after an initial term start date. No transfer credit is awarded once a student begins studies at WGU.
For undergraduate students entering with an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from a regionally or nationally accredited institution, as listed by the USDE in the United States, WGU will transfer or apply a Requirement Satisfied (RS) to the foundations assessments and all liberal arts general education requirements.
Undergraduate students entering into a College of Business program may receive Requirement Satisfied for certain general education requirements with a minimum degree of an Associate of Applied Science.
