AP Credit and Dual Credit Courses
Westminster College will consider AP courses and/or dual credit 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 credit 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 if a course has been evaluated for transfer credit. If a particular course is not shown, please ask for a course review.
