Transferring Credit


Transitioning to Western

Who is a transfer student?

You are a transfer student if you attempted college credit after graduation from high school or earning your GED (excluding credit earned during the summer after high school graduation). If you earned college credits while also fulfilling high school requirements (e.g., through the Running Start program), you will be considered a freshman for admissions purposes and will need to fulfill the requirements for freshman admission, even if you earned an associate degree while in high school.
