Transfer StudentsA two-year school, a four-year school or some of each: wherever you're from, start planning your transfer to EWU. Here's how.
304 Sutton Hall
Cheney, WA 99004
Types of Transfer Credit
What type of credit do you have? You may be able to transfer as many as 90 lower-division quarter credits and up to 45 upper-division quarter credits.
Credits from two-year and four-year colleges and universities
EWU accepts transfer credits from regionally accredited colleges and universities. If you completed transferable credits at another university, you may transfer up to 90 lower-division quarter credits toward your EWU bachelor's degree. In special situations you may transfer an additional 45 upper division quarter credits for a total of 135 quarter credits.
You may earn up to 45 quarter credits for military educational experiences. For example, if you took military classes while in the Air Force, you would provide your CCAF transcript to earn transfer credit for your transferable coursework. If you were in the Army, you would provide your DD214 or SMART transcript.
Classes you took at colleges or universities while in the military would be classified as "credits from two-year and four-year colleges and universities" as outlined above.
If you're on active duty or are a military veteran, or if you have a family member who is on active duty or a military veteran, be sure to explore the Veterans Resource Center. It's the largest VRC in the Pacific Northwest, and it can help you plan your transition to EWU.
If you're an adult student who has acquired substantial specialized training outside the classroom, you may earn up to 45 quarter credits for your experience. You can only earn these credits as part of a bachelor of arts degree in interdisciplinary studies. For more information, call 509.359.2442.
