Transfer Students


We welcome transfer students in the College of Business!

If you have 24 or more credits that you're transferring to WSU, we strongly recommend that you meet with the college advisor, Kattie, as soon as you have received WSU admission.

Kattie will help you determine how your classes will transfer into your chosen Business program and break down admission into the College of Business.

Because all courses required for College of Business admission (listed below) have equivalents at most Minnesota State two- and four-year institutions, Kattie can also provide you with an equivalency chart for your current institution.

WSU enters all of its transfer equivalencies in Transferology to help you determine how your credit will transfer. To do this, create a free account and enter the coursework you’ve completed, then use the search to see how your coursework transfers.

Kattie can even help you make a plan for graduation.

Email Kattie at to get started.
