Transfer Credit Evaluation Guidelines for Teachers College Undergraduate Programs

A transcript evaluation is conducted once official transcripts from all previously attended institutions are 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 provide a good indication of expected transfer credit. Official transcript evaluations occur during the month prior to your start 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 after the initial term start date. No transfer credit will be awarded once a student begins studies at WGU.

 

Courses accepted by transfer:

 

  • Must be college level from an Institutional Accreditor (as listed by the United States Department of Education). For a list of USDE recognized Institutional Accreditor agencies, see: Click Here.
  • Must have been awarded a grade of C or better for the Teachers College.
  • Transfer credit for licensure program in the Teachers College must come from a Institutional Accreditor. You can view a list of these institutions here
  • May not be used to fulfill more than one course of study. Must meet the competency unit and content equivalency.
  • May not be used to fulfill upper division requirements, except in certain cases to meet the maximum number of transfer unit’s available specific to the program.
