Transferability 2017-01-26T10:44:40+00:00

Wichita Area Technical College is a Kansas Board of Regents Institution and is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Credits earned at WATC are often easily transferred to other colleges and universities. Academic Advisores are available to help guide students through the transfer process and develop an academic plan. It is ultimately the student’s responsibility to confirm transferability and course equivalency with the receiving institution.

Transfer Credits:

Coursework from a regionally accredited institution with a grade of C or better may be considered for transfer credit.  WATC requires official transcripts which are evaluated by the registrar and/or appropriate dean.  Transfer credits are not included in the student’s WATC cumulative GPA but the credit hours are applied to the program award requirements.


The Kansas Board of Regents maintains Kansas System-Wide Transfer courses (KSWT) on its website, which makes it easy for students to take and transfer certain credits to any public postsecondary institutions. Click here to view KSWT courses.

In addition to the Board of Regents’ system-wide transfer, WATC also holds articulation agreements with the following postsecondary institutions:
