Transferring Courses

Transferring Courses to Wise

In order to transfer a course from another university or community college, degree-seeking students must complete and submit a request to transfer a course form to the Registrar for approval. If approval is granted, then the student must submit an official transcript from that institution to UVa-Wise to receive credit for that course.

Note: There are limits as to the number of credits that can be transferred to UVa-Wise, please see the current UVa-Wise catalog for details.

Credit can only be given for courses that were completed with a C- or better.

The full policy for incoming transfer students can be found in the College Catalog. Evaluations of transfer credit are prepared under the authority of academic departments, which reserve final decisions relative to the application of transfer credit to degree requirements in the major. Transcript evaluators prepare formal evaluations of transfer credit under the direction of the Registrar of UVa-Wise. In the case of disputes between transfer students and academic departments relative to the application of transfer credit to degree requirements, the Registrar generally is able to resolve the problem satisfactorily. In cases where conflicts cannot be resolved at the department level, they are referred to the Academic Dean who has the final authority. The Registrar has been designated Chief Transfer Officer at UVa-Wise and is the central source of information about transferring.

For course transfer or placement information, please see the attached VCCS (Virginia), the KCCS (Kentucky) equivalency guide(s), or the AP/IB placement policy for course transfer information.
