Transfer Credit Approval for Currently Enrolled Students
Wesleyan students who wish to complete work towards a Wesleyan degree at another institution must submit a completed Application for Credit Transfer form to receive approval for specific courses prior to enrollment. This step ensures that upon successful course completion, credits will be accepted by the College and satisfy intended degree requirements. Failure to follow this process may result in courses not transferring as intended and could impact degree completion. Courses will be applied to the Wesleyan transcript, following credit transfer policies outlined on page 179 of the undergraduate catalog, only when an official transcript is submitted following completion of the coursework. It is the student’s responsibility to request an official transcript from the transfer institution be issued to WVWC. Upon receipt of the official transcript, all courses recorded will be applied to the Wesleyan transcript.
Course descriptions from the transferring institution’s catalog must accompany the Application for Credit Transfer form before it will be processed. In some cases, in order to determine course equivalencies, department chairs or school directors may be consulted to review course materials.
Students must also adhere to the transfer credit restrictions. WVWC accepts transfer credit from regionally accredited colleges and universities in the US as well as from officially recognized colleges and universities in other countries. No more than 60 semester hours of credit may be transferred from a junior or community college. No more than 90 semester hours of credit may be transferred from a four year institution. No more than 4 semester hours of physical activity (EXSC) credits may be applied to the 120 hours for graduation. At least 24 of the last 30 semester hours of credit before graduation or entrance into an approved cooperative program for the senior year must be earned through Wesleyan.
