How to Transfer college credits
WATC works with other schools to transfer college credits. You can maintain credit for courses you have previously taken by transferring from community college, or university. General education classes are equivalent to other gen ed classes offered by another regents college, where other credits may transfer in as electives.
If you are thinking about transferring college credits, it is important to work closely with an advisor or coach at both schools to ensure that you are progressing towards your degree. The Shocker Pathway allows students to be dual advised in order to avoid any confusion down the road. Transfer requirements vary by school, so it is important to start talking to both schools as early as you can.
