Transfer Policies

We welcome applications from all qualified students who want to transfer to Kansas Wesleyan University from other colleges or universities. Acceptance of credit from colleges and universities, accredited or not, is at the sole discretion of the university. The evaluation of coursework completed at another college or university is considered on a case-by-case basis and determined upon review and  evaluation of official transcripts, course descriptions and course syllabi after official acceptance to Kansas Wesleyan University. The Registrar’s Office will facilitate the approval process between the student and the academic division or department. Students will receive a preliminary transfer credit evaluation that will indicate the courses that have been approved to transfer to KWU. All students seeking to graduate from KWU must meet the requirements for the Foundational Courses as well as complete the requirements for the Liberal Studies Program in order to graduate from KWU.

Transfer Applicants Include:
Full or part-time degree-seeking students who have taken 24 or more transferring graded college credit hours since high school graduation or completion of the GED (Students with less than 24 graded, transferable credit hours must meet the requirements specified for freshman applicants).

Reverse Transfer:
Kansas Wesleyan University participates in a universal reverse transfer program with Kansas community colleges. This program allows students to receive an associate’s degree from their most recent community college by combining credits earned at KWU with credits earned at the community college. Students who transfer at least 45 credit hours to KWU from any Kansas community college are eligible to participate in the reverse transfer program. Students who wish to participate must sign a Reverse Transfer Agreement. At the end of each Semester and summer term, KWU will submit an official transcript back to the community college for each student who is enrolled in the Reverse Transfer program and has at least 60 cumulative earned credit hours. Once the student has met all
degree requirements for their declared associate’s degree, the community college will award and mail the associate’s degree to the student.

Articulation Agreements:

Kansas Wesleyan maintains articulation agreements with a number of Community Colleges in order to confirm transfer course work. For a detailed listing of  articulation agreements contact the Registrar’s Office.
