Transfer Students

Transferring to WSU from within the US

Are you transferring from another school from within the United States? Follow these steps:

  1. Meet with your current international student advisor and request your SEVIS record be transferred to WSU.
  2. Submit your Certificate of Finances form along with supporting bank documents.
  3. Watch for your temporary I-20 from WSU, which you can use during international travel before arriving to campus
  4. When you arrive to campus at WSU, complete the new student check-in form in myPassport, and we will issue you a permanent WSU I-20.

Transferring to WSU from outside the US

If you are transferring from another university anywhere in the world, you probably would like to try transferring credits you’ve taken to count toward your degree at WSU. If so, you must send us your official transcripts so that we can conduct a transfer credit report. Once your transfer credit report is complete, your academic advisor will be able to help you select appropriate classes during your first term at WSU.

Understand your transfer credit report

WSU prides itself on being a transfer-friendly institution. Students who submit coursework completed at an accredited institution on an admission application are evaluated for receiving transfer credits for a WSU degree. Students who complete Cambridge, AS/A-Levels, International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement, and CLEP exams are evaluated for transfer credit. To view the transfer credits awarded, log in to myWSU and use this Transfer Credit Report Key (pdf) to understand your report.
