One semester of college work

Those who are interested in transferring after one semester of college work must fulfill all Minimum Course Requirements (MCR) from high school and should register for three college credit hours each in English, Math, Science, Social Science and/or Foreign Language.

For admission, those under the age of 24 should submit the high school transcript and standardized test scores in addition to the official college transcript.

Two semesters of college work

Those who are interested in transferring after two semesters of college work should have six credit hours each in English, Math, Science, Social Science and/or Foreign Language.

For admission, those under the age of 24 should submit the high school transcript and standardized test scores in addition to the official college transcript IF less than 30 credit hours is earned. If 30 hours of college credit are earned by completing six credits in each subject listed above, the high school transcript and standardized test scores will be waived.

Three semesters of college work

Students at a North Carolina community college are encouraged to complete the 44-hour general education core set forth by the community college. This will transfer to WCU, fulfilling the Liberal
Studies Requirement. Contact your transfer counselor/adviser at your community college for more information on this block of work.

For admission, students should submit an official transcript from each college attended. The high school transcript and standardized test scores are not required if the 44-hour general education core is complete.

Four semesters of college work

Students are encouraged to complete an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree. Completion of one of these degrees from a properly accredited institution, including all North Carolina Community Colleges, will transfer into WCU waiving the Liberal Studies requirement and awards the students junior status.

For admission, students should submit an official transcript from each college attended. The high school transcript and standardized test scores are not required if an AA or AS degree is earned.
