Transferring in Credit 


Westminster College works with students who wish to transfer in college credit, whether it be from high school through International Baccalaureate, AP, or dual enrollment; or from another higher education institution.

International Baccalaureate

Westminster College has a generous transfer policy for IB.  Students who present a full IB diploma with a final total score of 28 points or better will be awarded a year’s worth (30 hours) of credit toward graduation.

AP Credit and Dual Enrollment Courses

Westminster College will consider AP courses and/or dual enrollment courses for the awarding of academic credit. Whether these courses will transfer to the College and which degree requirements they will fulfill is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Generally speaking, AP courses will be considered for transfer if a student scores a 4 or 5 on the AP exam.

Dual enrollment courses will be considered for transfer as long as the student has received a grade of “C” or better in the course. All students are encouraged to take our Academic Writing course, as it will better prepare them for the type of written requirements in all departments.

Transferring Credit from another Institution

Westminster College has transfer agreements with several partner schools.  If you wish to transfer credit from a different institution, we have an online system which you can use to see if your course will transfer.
