We’re here to help. Together, we will customize your degree plan to maximize transfer credits and create an efficient pathway to degree completion, in all majors.

Make connections between faith, learning and service as a Waynesburg University student, no matter where you are in your educational journey.

Steps to Apply as a Transfer Student

  1. Confirm you’re transfer student status. To be considered for admission as a transfer applicant, students will have successfully completed high school or obtained a GED and completed 12 credit hours of non-remedial coursework at a regionally accredited institution. Transfer applicants must be eligible to re-enroll at all prior institutions. If you have less than 12 completed credit hours, have not graduated from high school or earned a GED,  follow the first-year student admissions process.
  2. Fill out the online Transfer Application for Admission.
  3. Fill out the Transfer Student Clearance Form
  4. Prepare the following:
    • Official high school transcript or copy of GED
    • Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended (Official transcripts are required. Certificates are not acceptable. These transcripts can be unofficial, initially, but admission is contingent upon receipt of final official transcripts.)
  5. Send the documents from step three and four to:
    • Waynesburg University
      Office of Admissions
      51 W College St.
      Waynesburg, PA 15370
  6. Stay tuned. The Admissions Committee may request additional information, including but not limited to high school transcripts for GED candidates; revised SAT or ACT scores; additional test scores; letters of recommendation; and/or a personal interview. The committee also reserves the right to recalculate a student’s GPA based on all institutions attended. Specified degree programs may require standard cumulative grade point averages and completion of specific courses in order to be admitted into that program of study (e.g. Nursing and Education).
  7. Review the academic catalog for transfer credit policy. The University Registrar will evaluate all college transcripts and the credits to be transferred. 
  8. Review Transfer Admissions Deadlines.
