Eligibility for admission of transfer applicants with fewer than forty transferable quarter credits is the same as first-time freshmen as they must meet freshman requirements in addition to an assessment of the quality of previous college work.
Applicants who have earned more than forty transferable quarter credits will be admitted based on the quality of college work only. If transcripts do not provide evidence of academic ability, regardless of the grade point average, additional information may be required.
Central Washington University accepts academic credits earned at other accredited collegiate institutions which are essentially equivalent in academic level and nature of work offered at CWU. The university endorses the policy in the Intercollegiate Transfer and Articulation Agreement among Washington public colleges and universities.
Students who have completed college-level math and English and those that have completed a Direct Transfer Associates degree (DTA) will do better in the comprehensive review process. See the following web site for a list of accepted DTA degrees: http://www.cwu.edu/~cwuadmis/dta.html.
Admission to the university does not guarantee admission into a particular major or program offered by the university.
