Students may apply a maximum of 16 transfer credits toward a Willamette degree. Six quarter hours or four semester hours of transfer credit equal one Willamette Credit. In most cases, courses taken at regionally accredited colleges or universities will receive full credit if they are comparable to courses offered at Willamette, or otherwise consistent with the goals and standards of Willamette's undergraduate degree programs. Courses with grades below C- (C minus) will not receive credit. Transfer courses are not used in computing the Willamette University grade point average. To be eligible for transfer credit, college courses must be described in the college catalog and recorded on the college transcript.
Once matriculated at Willamette University, students must submit a Transfer Credit Request form prior to enrolling in proposed transfer courses. Current students thinking about taking a class during the summer and transferring the credit to Willamette University should complete a Transfer Credit Decision Aid form.
