From course advising to financial aid counseling and career guidance, your transition to becoming a Coyote will be easy and seamless. Register for Transfer Student Day.

To Be Considered A Transfer Student You Must Meet One of the Following Criteria:

  • Full or part-time degree-seeking students who have taken 24 or more transferable college credit hours since high school graduation or completion of the GED.
  • Students who have less than 24 transferring graded credit hours must meet the requirements specified for New Freshman applicants.

Requirements for full-time and part-time students:

  1. Applicants must have earned a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale for 24 or more transferable graded credit hours
  2. Applicants must submit an official transcript from each college attended demonstrating they have left the institution “in good standing.”
  3. Applicants must be a high school graduate or have a GED.

Please note: Grades earned on the quarter-term system do not transfer at the full credit listed on the transcript. Quarter-term hours compute at two-thirds of KWU credit hours; e.g., 4 quarter-term hours will equal 2.67 semester hours. The Registrars Office compiles official equivalencies
