Transfer Policy

Your academic goals are our goals, and every unit matters.

UWest makes every effort to transfer units from a community college towards your degree and help you achieve your academic goals. To help facilitate this, we strongly recommend you provide your academic advisor with a copy of your unofficial transcripts for a preliminary evaluation of your transferable units.

UWest Transfer Requirements:

  • Students who wish to transfer to UWest from another college or university should be in good standing and not under academic or disciplinary probation or suspension.
  • In the baccalaureate program, UWest accepts a maximum of 90 semester or 135 quarter units earned at other regionally accredited or state-approved colleges, including a maximum of 70 semester or 105 quarter units earned at community colleges.
  • Transfer credit will not be given for grades below 2.0.
  • Credits for examinations given by the National Testing Service are generally not accepted, with the exception of Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations.
