Transfer Credit Evaluation Guidelines for College of Health Professions

A transcript evaluation is completed once official transcripts from all previously attended institutions have been received by WGU.


Note: 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.


Transfer guidelines  will provide a good indication of expected transfer credit. Official transcript evaluations will be completed during the month prior to each student’s start date and are performed in the order they are received. Students cannot begin their program until all official transcripts from all previously attended institutions are received by WGU. We do not award transfer credit for transcripts received after an initial term start date. No transfer credit will be awarded once a student begins studies at WGU.
