Applicants who have received a high school diploma or completed their GED and who have attempted 12 credits or more at one or more post-secondary schools will be classified as a "transfer student."

Admissions Process

To be considered for admission as a transfer applicant at Waynesburg University, students should have completed 12 credit hours of non-remedial coursework at (a) regionally accredited institution(s) and have successfully completed high school or obtained a GED. Transfer applicants must be eligible to re-enroll at all prior institutions. (Students with less than 12 completed credit hours should refer to our Freshman Admission process.)

*The Admissions Committee may require additional information from applicants, including but not limited to: high school transcripts for GED candidates, SAT or ACT 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 in order to be admitted into that program of study (e.g. Nursing, Education and Athletic Training).

The University Registrar will evaluate all college transcripts and the credits to be transferred. Please see the academic catalog for transfer credit policy.

Official transcripts from all previously attended colleges, universities, etc. are required. Certificates are not acceptable. These transcripts can be unofficial, initially. Admission is contingent upon receipt of final official transcripts.
