Transfer Credits from Other Colleges

If you've completed coursework at another accredited college or university, you may be able to transfer those credits to WCTC. Follow these steps:

  1. Request that your previous institution(s) send official transcripts directly to the WCTC Admissions Office.

  2. Apply for admission to one of WCTC's programs.

  3. Review the email that is sent to your WCTC email account after we evaluate your transcripts. This generally occurs 1-3 weeks after we receive your transcripts.

  4. Review credit awarded through your MyWCTC account in the "Academic Profile" box click "View Transcript."

    • The "TR" grade code indicates transfer credit awarded.

Transfer Resources

Check the Transfer Information System (TIS) if you are transferring courses from a four-year or two-year UW College campus or another Wisconsin technical college. Through TIS, you can see which courses have previously been approved to transfer to WCTC.  Contact the receiving college/university directly to verify accuracy.

Critical Information

  • Only courses with a grade of “C” (2.0/4.0 scale) or better will be reviewed for transfer credit. Time limits may apply based on course and/or program requirements. For required science courses for Nursing, grade requirements may be higher.
  • You must complete 25 percent of your program coursework in residence at WCTC. For certificates of 12 credits or less, you must complete at least one of the certificate courses in residence. Transfer credits do not count as credits earned in residence.
  • If you receive transfer credit, then you are exempt from taking the associated course.
  • Transfer credit may affect veteran benefits and financial aid. Review the 150 percent maximum credit policy and consult with the Financial Aid Office for more information.
  • If you wish to appeal your transfer evaluation, you must submit a written appeal with any supporting materials to the respective associate dean within 30 days of the initial evaluation.
  • Transfer credit is not calculated in your grade point average.
