Although the 2016 winter quarter transfer application deadline has passed, we are still accepting applications. They will be considered on a space available basis after on-time applications are reviewed.
Who should use this application?
Western welcomes transfer students in all majors and from all types of colleges and universities. You are a transfer student if you attempted college credit after graduating from high school or after earning your GED (excluding credit earned during the summer after high school graduation). If you earned college credits while also fulfilling high school requirements (such as through the Running Start program), you will be considered a freshman for admissions purposes and will need to meet requirements for Freshman Admission, even if you earned an associate degree while in high school.
