Transferring Your Community College Degree or Credits to WGU is Simple
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).
Depending on your degree program, you may qualify for additional requirement waivers. 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 community college partners throughout the United States. If you'd like to do an initial self-assessment of transfers you may qualify for, you can search our community college partner site (by state). Please note, this tool is for desktop users. Any questions you encounter can be resolved by speaking with an Enrollment Counselor.
