Transfer My Credits

It is the policy of Washburn University to accept all credits – with the exception of remedial coursework – earned at a post-secondary institution accredited by one of the U.S. regional accrediting agencies. Working with faculty in academic colleges or departments within Washburn, the University Registrar’s Office determines how those credits apply toward a particular degree program. Sometimes there can be a significant difference between what transfers and what counts toward a degree, especially if the courses are vocational in nature.

To lookup the Washburn equivalency for a transfer course:

  1. Select the Name of the transfer institution. This is mainly designed for Kansas colleges/universities
  2. Select an individual Subject area abbreviation or * All Subjects *.
  3. Select an individual Course or * All Subjects

Courses not listed in the transfer equivalency system have not been previously evaluated for transfer; however, that does not necessarily mean that the course does not transfer or that Washburn University does not accept credits from that school.  Students should email transferinfo@washburn.edu for assistance with transfer of courses not listed

A transfer course that has a Washburn equivalency course number of 1XX, 2XX, 3XX or 4XX is counted as an elective. Some courses with a specific Washburn equivalent course will also only count as an elective, depending upon the student’s program at Washburn University. The number of elective hours that count toward a degree may vary.

The effective term column indicates the last term a course was reviewed for transfer to Washburn University.  

See how your credits transfer and how they might apply to program(s) at Washburn. It is recommended that you work from a copy of your transcript(s) when entering your course work.
