We accept credit into Wor-Wic and count it toward your degree. You can transfer in credit by completing examinations, earning credits in high school, earning credits at other colleges/universities or gaining credit for military training.
Credit through High School Articulations
Credit by Examination
Examinations through Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) may be eligible for transfer as well as Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) and credits for specialized training through the American Council on Education (ACE).
Advanced Placement (AP) and College Level Examination Program (CLEP) transcripts may be requested through the College Board. AP credits may not be awarded from a high school transcript.
The following tables show AP and CLEP equivalences for courses at Wor-Wic.
High school students in Worcester, Wicomico, Somerset and Dorchester counties may be eligible to receive college credit for occupational courses completed 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 forward a copy of their high school transcript to the registrar's office within three years of their high school graduation and prior to registering for classes at Wor-Wic. In order for a course to be credited to Wor-Wic, the student must successfully complete a 100-level course at the college.
Credit from Colleges/Universities
We accept credit from other colleges and universities. You must submit an official transcript from each college/university attended directly to our registrar’s office. Transcripts may be sent by mail or online through E-Script or Parchment. Once received, we will perform a course-by-course evaluation of your credits. Please be aware of the following restrictions:
- Degree-seeking transfer students must complete at least 25 percent (or 15 credits) of their coursework 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 the following majors: Emergency Medical Services, Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Physical Therapist Assistant and Radiologic Technology programs.
- Students who are placed on academic probation or suspension at another college/university may be accepted into Wor-Wic but will be placed on academic probation and limited to three classes during their first semester.
- A course-by-course evaluation is required for international college students who would like to be admitted as a transfer student. Those who possess a high school diploma may request an evaluation of their high school degree. These evaluations must be performed by World Education Services at the student’s expense. World Education Services may be reached at 312-222-0882 or online at http://www.wes.org/. International credits are treated the same as transfer credits from an accredited U.S. institution. General education courses cannot be accepted if they equal less than three semester hours.
Also, please be aware that the following will not transfer in:
- courses from colleges/universities that are not accredited
- remedial/developmental skills courses
- courses for which "0" credit was received
- courses marked with an "I" or "W" or "in progress"
- pre-requisite courses that require a certain grade or higher may need to be repeated to take additional courses
- Advanced Placement Scores below a “3” are not transferable.
Transfer students are encouraged to meet with the Associate Registrar their first semester to review their transfer credit evaluation equivalency report, degree audit and to register for classes.
