Transfer students are eligible to apply for most JWU majors; however, they are not guaranteed credit. Credit is usually granted for courses completed with a grade of “C” or better (with a numeric value of 2.00) at another institution accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or International Ministry of Education. Grades of “pass” are also acceptable for transfer if credit was awarded (and a grade of “P” has the numeric value of 2.00 or greater). Credits earned in developmental and remedial courses or CEUs are nontransferable. Transfer credit evaluations are based on previous college work as it relates to the student’s intended field of study. Transfer credits are not calculated into the cumulative grade point average.
Transfer candidates must submit official college transcripts from all colleges previously attended prior to enrolling at JWU. Students must also submit final official high school transcripts and provide verification of high school/secondary school completion.
It is the responsibility of those candidates who are currently attending another college to have their updated transcripts sent to JWU as soon as final grades become available and no later than the first term of enrollment.
The university reserves the right to substitute courses at the discretion of the department chairs, directors or deans.
