Transfer Students

Step 1: Determine your math course

If you did NOT complete Math 141, Math 107 or Math 146 while at community college you will need to take a Math class prior to enrolling in Psych 311.

Step 2: Determine your Biology course

If you did not take a general biology with lab course prior to enrolling at WSU you will need to take Biol 102, Biol 106 or Biol 107 at WSU. Please consult with your advisor regarding which of these classes would best suit you.

Step 3: Transfer your courses INCLUDING your AA where applicable

It is imperative that you transfer all your classes into WSU as soon as you possibly can to avoid taking redundant coursework. You can use the Transfer Course Equivalency site:transfer course to determine how your coursework will transfer in. Visit the Transfer Student Guide in order to get your credits transferred in. Also, you need to transfer your actual AA to WSU in order to complete your UCORE classes. Once your transcript posts, you will be able to tell when you run a “what-if” report. Your UCORE classes will show as being “satisfied by DTA.”
