Transferring to a Distance Learning Program

We appreciate your interest in our Distance Learning Programs. To help you with the Distance transfer process, we have gathered a few resources to answer some of the most common questions.

NC Community College Equivalencies

NCCCS Course Equivalency Finder

We have a comprehensive list of community college courses and their historical transfer to WCU. If you do not see the course you took on the list, or there isn't an equivalent listed, that doesn't necessarily mean we won't accept it. It can also mean we do not have any current historical record of previous transfer. If you have  any questions about what you find on this list, please let us know.

College/University Look-up Tool

College and University Look-up Tool

Didn't attend an NC Community College, or attended additional other schools? No problem. We have a tool with the historical record of all previous transfer credits from colleges across the country. If you do not see the course you took on the list, or there isn't an equivalent listed, that doesn't necessarily mean we won't accept it. It can also mean we do not have any current historical record of previous transfer. If you have any questions about what you find on this list, please let us know.

Liberal Studies Matrix

The Liberal Studies Matrix

For the Liberal Studies requirements, we have a matrix to help provide some recommended ways to fulfill each category. These are not a comprehensive list of the courses we will accept. Rather, we list the most commonly transferred courses in each category. If you have any questions about additional courses, please see the NCCCS Equivalency Finder or Look-up Tool above. If you are not able to find information about a course on either of those, please let us know and we will do our best to assist.

Testing For Credit

CLEP

DSST

The College Level Exam Program (CLEP) and Dante's Subject Standardized Tests (DSST) are a common way to fulfill course work using knowledge you have gained through life-experience and means other than transferable college credit. We accept over 30 CLEP tests and nearly 40 DSST exams to cover common subject areas.

College of Business Self-Assessment Guides

Business Admin and Law

Innovation Leadership and Entrepreneurship

Our Business Programs currently offer a self assessment guide to assist students interested in those programs in finding coursework that will help with program requirements, here.

 

Request a Preliminary Evaluation

Preliminary Evaluation Request

After reviewing all these resources, if you would like for us to perform a preliminary evaluation of your previous credits, simply fill out the request form and we'll take a look. Preliminary evaluations usually take 1-2 weeks to complete. They are not official, nor a guarantee of transfer of your credits, but they will help provide you a good idea of what you can expect from transfer.
