Transferring Credits

Transferring from Another Institution

Students transferring to Wayne State College with an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree completed at an accredited post-secondary institution that includes a minimum of thirty (30) semester credit hours of general studies coursework or its equivalent will fulfill all requirements of the general studies program at Wayne State College. This becomes effective upon receipt of an official transcript indicating the completion of the AA or AS degree. All other transfer students must meet all General Studies requirements; General Studies transfer courses will be considered on a course by course basis.

Students who are planning to transfer to Wayne State from another institution should consult the transfer agreement institutions.

Transfer Credit Approval

If a student is considering enrolling in a course at another institution to transfer to Wayne State, approval must be obtained from the Records and Registration Office prior to enrollment in the course. The Records and Registration Office will confirm that it is an equivalent course.

Once approved for credit transfer, the student must earn at least a C- in order to be accepted at Wayne State, unless Wayne State requires a higher grade to be earned in the equivalent course.

Upon completion of the course, an official transcript must be sent directly from the other institution to the Wayne State College Records and Registration Office for evaluation.

Transcripts should be sent to:

Wayne State College
Records and Registration
1111 Main Street
Wayne, NE 68787

Appealing Transfer of Credits

Students who wish to appeal the evaluation of a transfer course for the purposes of the General Studies Requirements will need to complete a Transfer Credit Review Form available in the Records and Registration Office and submit it to the appropriate Department Chair. Students must attach documentation - a catalog course description or in some cases a syllabus - with their request.
