• Transfer Student Procedures for Admission

    1. COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS: Each university attended must be submitted to the Office of Admissions upon your arrival to campus. You must be in good standing and eligible to return to the last institution attended. Course work may be transferred to UWA from international institutions. However, we require that you have your official transcripts evaluated by an outside evaluation service if the official transcript is not in English. Evaluations need to be a course by course evaluation. 
      Foreign College transcripts are required to be evaluated directly from an evaluation service affiliated with the National Association of Credit Evaluation Services (NACES). For a listing of NACES member organizations and their contact information, please visit www.naces.org/members.htm.
