Transfer Evaluation Guidelines for Bachelor of Science in Business - Accounting

A transcript evaluation is completed once official transcripts from all previously attended institutions have been received by WGU. Please note that transcripts must be sent to WGU directly from the issuing institution to be considered official. WGU does not perform unofficial evaluations or accept unofficial transcripts. The guidelines below will provide a good indication of expected transfer credit. Official transcript evaluations will occur in the month prior to your start. Transcripts are processed in the order they are received. Please contact your Enrollment Counselor if it has been more than 15 business days since your transcripts have been received and you have not received an evaluation. Transfer credit will not be awarded for transcripts received after your first term start date. Transfer credit awarded for Business, Information Technology, or Health Professions College programs may not apply if a program change is made to the WGU Teacher’s College.
