Students who are attending or have attended West Virginia Wesleyan College are entitled to an official transcript of the work they have completed, provided they have cleared all outstanding accounts. The transcript is the official record of the student’s enrollment at the College, including all undergraduate and graduate courses and degrees. West Virginia Wesleyan College uses Parchment as its trusted agent for processing official transcript requests. This process is completely secure. Transcript delivery method options include U.S. Mail delivery or electronic delivery (PDF format). Current West Virginia Wesleyan College students can view and download their unofficial transcripts via WebAdvisor or Self-Service. Once a student is no longer enrolled, the College does not process requests for unofficial transcripts.
In order to comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), all transcript orders require authorization through the establishment of a Parchment account. Transcripts are $10 for each electronic delivered copy and $12.50 for each paper copy. Charges are applied at the time the order is placed. Requests are typically processed in 2-3 working days following approval by the Office of Student Accounts. FedEx requests for domestic and international shipping require additional charges.
Credits can be earned at Wesleyan both on-campus and online. Credits from other institutions may also be available for transfer, by the discretion of department faculty and the office of the Registrar.
Credit By Examination
Students who take the College Board Advanced Placement Program examinations and achieve a score of three or higher will in most cases be eligible for credit in the appropriate course (s) upon enrollment at Wesleyan.
Entering students may receive credit for the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) through general examinations when they achieve the passing score set by Wesleyan.
Students must be enrolled at Wesleyan to take advantage of credit by examination. Credit will be awarded only when it does not duplicate or significantly overlap credit which already appears on the student’s official college transcript. Likewise, exams may not be taken for credit by a student who has already completed a course for which the credit is requested is a prerequisite. A student may not take an exam for a course in which he or she has been enrolled previously. General information regarding acceptance of credit is available from the Office of the Registrar.
West Virginia Wesleyan College accepts transfer credit from regionally accredited colleges and universities in the United States as well as from officially recognized colleges and universities in other countries. Credit earned in the arts, letters, and sciences, and selected professional disciplines is eligible for transfer to Wesleyan. Credit may be accepted by special arrangement from a non-accredited institution; however, credit will not be posted to the student’s permanent record until the student has completed one academic year of work at Wesleyan with an average grade of C (2.0). The Admission and Academic Standing Council may require examinations to demonstrate proficiency in work taken at non-accredited institutions. The Office of the Registrar is responsible for the evaluation and acceptance of transfer credit.
Wesleyan students may complete work toward a Wesleyan degree at another institution. However, they must receive approval for specific courses prior to enrolling in them to guarantee that they will be accepted by the College and will satisfy intended degree requirements. 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 college.
Educational Experience in Armed Forces
The College may grant appropriate credit, as recommended in The Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services, and as modified or superseded by later recommendations of the Commission on Educational Credit of the American Council on Education, to students who either submit satisfactory documentary evidence (e.g., DD 214), or demonstrate on such tests as the College may prescribe that they have achieved, through educational experience in the armed services, a satisfactory degree of mastery of any subject for which the College regularly gives credit.
In granting credit under these regulations, no duplication of credit will be allowed, and no fractional credits will be granted. Credit in physical education may be allowed for educational experience in the armed services only when the applicant has completed 12 continuous months of active military service. Credit for educational experience gained in the armed services will be recorded only for persons who are currently enrolled as students in the College.
Interested persons should consult the staff in the Office of the Registrar.
Whether you are already a Wesleyan student, a student enrolled at another institution, or an advanced high school student, taking a Wesleyan online course is a smart way to get ahead over May or summer term. For details about how to enroll and registration costs, please contact the Academic Services Office at 304-473-8046.

Procedures for Obtaining an Apostille
An Apostille is a form of authentication required by countries which have signed the 1961 Hague Convention abolishing the Requirement for Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. They are often needed by students who are required by their country to authenticate documents, such as a transcript or diploma. A student wishing to obtain an Apostille should submit a request to the Office of the Registrar requesting the authentication be attached to a designated document identifying the country to which it will be sent. If the request includes the diploma, the student must request a replacement diploma (fee charged) from the Academic Affairs Office by calling 304-473-8042 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The procedure for obtaining an apostille certification is as follows:
1) Submit official request to the Office of the Registrar at email@example.com identifying the following:
- Specific documents in need of the apostille:
- Official transcripts may be requested by using the online request link located on the Wesleyan website under Academics/Academic Services. Please specify the delivery of the official transcript to the Office of the Registrar, WV Wesleyan College by noting in the comment section the need for an Apostille.
- Country to which the documents are to be sent.
- The return address to which the documents will need to be mailed.
2) For each certification required, a check or money order, drawn on a U.S. bank payable to the WV Secretary of State in the amount of $10 per certification must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar to be included in the prepared documentation. The Office of the Registrar will prepare the notarized documents and submit the compiled request to the WV Secretary of State. Once we are in receipt of the Apostille, the documentation will be sent to the requested address by U.S. Mail.
3) If you need express mail services to deliver the documents directly from the WV Secretary of State’s Office, a prepaid return Express Mail packet or a FedEx, UPS or other shipping service packet with your account number must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar to include in the request, otherwise U.S. Mail service will be utilized once the documentation is received from the WV Secretary of State.
4) Please allow a minimum of two weeks for the documents to be apostilled.
- Specific documents in need of the apostille:
2022-2023 Academic Year
2020/2021 Undergraduate Catalog Amendment 5 Year Master
2020/2021 Graduate Catalog Amendment Master of Athletic Training
Declaration of Major/Minor
Each student is required to complete a major program of study in order to graduate. To declare a major and/or minor, a student must complete a major-advisor update request form which is located on the website or in the Academic Services Office. The form requires the student to declare all intended majors, minors and specializations and the intended date of completion. Some departments offer course preregistration priority to students who have a declared major within that department to ensure students are able to enroll in program course requirements. Students are highly encouraged to declare a major no later than the beginning of the sophomore year to allow for sufficient time to complete program requirements. However, depending upon the program, it may not be possible to complete program requirements in the remaining time frame if the program is declared beyond the freshman year.
Degree verification is often required for a variety of purposes such as employment opportunities, mortgage loans, and automobile loan discounts. Verifications are available in two formats depending upon the need.

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.
