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.
For undergraduate students entering with an Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from an Institutional Accreditor as listed by the United States Department of Education (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 except Nursing and Teachers College degree programs. In certain cases, the degree must be in a specific field of study. Courses accepted for RS in Teachers College programs must be from a regionally accredited institution.
The Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies, Bachelor of Arts in Special Education programs are excluded from this policy and all courses in these programs must be reviewed individually per the transfer guidelines.
Refer to your specific program transfer guidelines to determine which assessments can be satisfied by an Associate or Bachelor's degree:
