This credit will be counted toward Westminster’s general degree requirements; however, departmental evaluation will be required before it may be counted toward completion of a specific degree program. Westminster College also requires proof of High School graduation.
Transfer Credit Equivalencies
Transfer work from community, junior or two-year colleges may not count toward the required 300-400 level course work. Please check with the transfer coordinator, Amy Marek, if you have questions about a particular class not listed.
