From High School
High school students in Worcester, Wicomico, Somerset and Dorchester counties could be eligible to receive college credit for certain occupational courses they completed in high school with a grade of “B” or better (these are not dual enrolled courses you took in high school for high school and college credit . . . we have those credits on your Wor-Wic transcript already).
Students must have a copy of their high school transcripts forwarded to the registrar within three years of their high school graduation and prior to registering for classes at Wor-Wic. In order to be awarded credit for these courses, students must complete at least one 100-level course at Wor-Wic.
From Standardized Testing Agencies
We accept Advanced Placement (AP) scores of "3" or higher, College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams with a minimum score of “50,” Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education Diploma (AICE) with minimum scores of “30” for the A Level and “60” for the AS Level, and International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) scores of "4" or higher. Some scores vary. Please consult the score charts below or speak with an advisor to see how each course is applied.
Students who completed AP or CLEP exams should have their official score reports sent to admissions from the College Board. Students who have completed Cambridge AICE should send their official transcripts with the scores. Students who have completed the IB DP program should have their official transcripts sent by their DP coordinator. Copies of high school transcripts are not acceptable.
The following tables show AP and CLEP equivalences for courses at Wor-Wic:
From Other Colleges or Universities
We accept credits that have been completed at other regionally-accredited, degree-granting institutions of higher education if the courses are equivalent to and meet the requirements of the student's program of study at Wor-Wic. Upon the receipt of official transcripts, transfer credits are evaluated by the registrar on a course-by-course basis. You must submit an official transcript from each college or university attended directly to our registrar. Transcripts can be sent by mail or online through E-Script or Parchment. Please be aware of the following restrictions:
- Degree-seeking transfer students must complete at least 25 percent (or 15 credits) of their course work at Wor-Wic.
- If your college operates on a quarter hour system, your credits will be adjusted to semester hours.
- Transfer credits do not factor into your GPA at Wor-Wic unless you are applying for admission into the emergency medical services, nursing, occupational therapy assistant, physical therapist assistant or radiologic technology program.
- Prerequisite courses that require a certain grade might need to be repeated before you can take additional courses.
- Students who are placed on academic probation or suspension at another college/university could be accepted into Wor-Wic, but they are placed on academic probation and limited to three classes during their first term.
Also, please be aware that the following will not transfer in:
From Foreign Institutions
- courses from colleges or universities that are not accredited;
- remedial or developmental skills courses;
- courses for which "0" credit was received; and
- courses marked with an "I" or "W" or "in progress."
International students who want to be admitted as high school graduates or who want to transfer college credits into Wor-Wic must have their high school or college transcripts evaluated by an accredited evaluation agency at their own expense. We recommend these MSDE Approved Services
, or you may elect to use any agency of your choice by having them preapproved by the registrar’s office. Credits transferred from foreign institutions are awarded the same as transfer credits from U.S. institutions. General education courses of less than three semester hours are not accepted.
From the Military and Other Non-Traditional Ways
Military credits and credits for specialized training recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE) are awarded the same as other transfer credits. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard veterans can obtain a Joint Services Transcript (JST) through ACE
. Air Force transcripts can be obtained from the Community College of the Air Force. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard veterans who served prior to 1976 and Air Force veterans who served prior to 1972 can access their DD-414s through the National Archives. Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) transcripts can be requested through the DANTES website
