Go to Minnesota Transfer for good information and advice, including Transferology, which allows you to see specific course equivalencies for participating institutions. You may make an appointment to visit campus and meet individually with a transfer admissions counselor to discuss your situation. A degree audit report will be sent to you after you have been admitted.
You are admissible if you have 24 or more transferable college credits (excluding technical or remedial credit) at a regionally accredited 2- or 4-year institution with a GPA of at least 2.4. If you have fewer than 24 credits and at least a 2.4 college GPA, you will need to meet current freshman admission standards: 18-20 ACT with top half of high school class rank; or 21 ACT with top two-thirds class rank. Your high school transcript will need to show adequate preparation coursework as if you were a freshman applicant.
Apply for the fall, spring, or summer terms online. All application information should be sent prior to 45 days before the beginning of a term. Separate, earlier deadlines exist for some programs such as RN to BSN nursing and education transfer students. WSU is not admitting transfer students without an associates degree + RN into the nursing program at this time.
Send all college transcripts to WSU Admissions, complete an application, and pay a $20 fee if you haven't paid it previously. If you have completed less than 24 college credits after high school graduation, you will also need to send your official high school transcript and official electronic ACT score. Students can apply online or contact us for a paper application. Transcripts need to be sent by the college directly to WSU.
WSU considers you a transfer if you have earned college-level transferable credit after high school and you have not received a bachelor’s degree. PSEO students who have not graduated from high school should use the freshman application. If you have a bachelor’s and want another undergraduate degree, use the transfer application. If you just want to take a few undergraduate courses at WSU, use the undergraduate special application.
