It is the policy of Wichita State University (WSU) to accept all credits – with the exception of remedial coursework – earned at a post-secondary institution accredited by one of the U.S. regional accrediting agencies. Working with faculty in academic colleges or departments within WSU, the Registrar determines how those credits apply toward a particular degree program. Sometimes there can be a significant difference between what transfers and what counts toward a degree, especially if the courses are vocational in nature.

To lookup the WSU equivalency for a transfer course:

  1. Select the State where the transfer institution is located.
  2. Select the Name of the transfer institution.
  3. Select an individual Subject area abbreviation or * All Subjects *.
  4. Select an individual Course or * All Subjects *.

To view the results, select either HTML/Excel or PDF and click the Submit button.

Courses not listed in the transfer equivalency system have not been previously evaluated for transfer; however, that does not necessarily mean that the course does not transfer or that Wichita State University does not accept credits from that school.  Students should contact their Academic Advising Officee for assistance with transfer of courses not listed. If a student is not yet admitted and doesn't know who will advise them, they should contact the Registrar's Office.

A transfer course that has a WSU equivalency course number of 2000, 4000, 6000, or 8000 is counted as an elective. Some courses with a specific WSU equivalent course will also only count as an elective, depending upon the student’s program at WSU. The number of elective hours that count toward a degree can vary from 3 to 40, depending upon the academic college or department’s program.

The effective term column indicates the last term a course was reviewed for transfer to Wichita State University. A course is reviewed because it is a newly offered course or due to changes in course structure.

Tip: If the course is not listed in the drop down list, select * All Courses *. Some courses must be taken with one or more other classes in order to count as a transfer course.
