Your Questions Answered

Transfer Student Admission Process

Let’s be honest - if you’re a transfer student, you’ve enrolled at a college before, so some of the basic steps will be familiar.

However, transferring does add a few new questions into the mix:
•    How many credits will transfer from my previous school(s)?
•    How many years before I get my degree?
•    How much will this cost me?

We will answer these for you BEFORE you have to decide to come here. During your application process, we will get you those answers. The first step is to apply.

Fill out the application form and send your transcripts. Here are the transfer student documents required. Once we get the documents we need, we’ll send you a personalized transfer credit evaluation and financial aid package. So, no worries - all your questions will be answered promptly! 
 

Transfer Agreements with Local Colleges

Wilson College has partnered with several colleges in our area to make transferring simple and seamless. If you’ve attended any of the schools listed in our agreements section below, chances are you might be closer to your degree than you think.

If you have an associate degree or just a number of credits from one of our partner schools, you may be eligible for dual admission – resulting in a smooth transition between institutions while maximizing your transferable credits. Feel free to email or call with any questions.

Transfer Your Credits to Wilson

You can transfer many of the credits you have already earned towards your degree at Wilson. Read our transfer credit policy below to learn:
•    the maximum number of credits that transfer
•    the hours needed for associate and bachelor’s degrees
•    how the college-level exam program (CLEP) can earn you credits for specific courses
 

Scholarships for You

Going to school is an investment in your future. To help you afford it, we have a wide array of scholarships available to students transferring from other institutions. Check out our Merit Scholarships—these are awarded at the time a student is offered admission. The amount we can offer increases the higher your transferring GPA.

This amount of your award is locked in at the point of admission, meaning you can keep that amount your entire time at Wilson College! Check out the scholarships below, and just remember, this is only the beginning of what Wilson can do to help you (and your wallet)!
