Information about Transcript Evaluation

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 the 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. All transfer credit is specific to your current degree pathway. Should you decide to change programs at any time a new evaluation will be completed, and the appropriate credit will be awarded for the new program.
