Transfer Credit Evaluation
In higher education, courses don’t have consistent titles. The same course might have dozens of names, while many different courses can have the same title. So, when students transfer to EWU with credits from other colleges, we need to evaluate the transfer credits.
Remember: Your transfer credit evaluation is a very complex process, especially if you have transfer credits from several schools. We take time to make sure we perform your evaluation right.
Your college transcripts will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis. If an equivalent course exists, your transcript evaluation will determine whether it counts as an elective, as a prerequisite for your major, or as a Breadth Area Core Requirement.
When your credit evaluation is complete, you’ll receive an email with instructions telling you how you can access the evaluation. It typically takes two weeks to evaluate your credits.
You can get an idea of how your credits might transfer by reviewing our Transfer Guide. Questions? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before your first advising appointment, EWU will evaluate your transcripts and determine which of your credits will transfer. You will receive priority consideration for credit evaluation once you have:
- Confirmed your admission
- Sent official transcripts
- Scheduled an advising appointment
