Get Credit for Community College Work Transfer Policy

WGU’s curriculum structure is competency-based, allowing you to apply your existing knowledge and skills to your education. Students transferring from a U.S. community college can expect a comprehensive transfer policy.

Students with an Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree usually qualify for an Upper-Division standing at WGU. This position allows you to waive up to 40 WGU credit equivalents, also known as Competency Units (CUs) (equal to 60 quarterly credit hours). Note: Depending on your degree program, you may qualify for additional requirement waivers.

Note: If you have completed some college coursework but have not earned a degree, WGU will conduct a transcript evaluation. Your experience may waive some of your requirements.

WGU has been working very closely with many colleges to establish transfer pathways that outline the way a variety of available associate degrees will transfer to WGU. Click here to see if your school participates in this transfer pathway process.
