IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING SUMMER SCHOOL ELSEWHERE:
- Even if the course you want to take is preapproved, you must submit a SSE Application prior to attending the other school.
- You must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA (including spring) before attending another school. If you believe that you may have lower than a 2.0 cumulative GPA after spring grades are entered, do not register for a first session of summer school at a school other than WFU.
- Transfer credit is given only for courses taken at 4-year institutions that grant bachelor’s degrees.
- A student may transfer to WFU no more than 60 hours of credit. This includes hours taken both prior to and after enrolling at WFU. Once enrolled, a student may count towards graduation, at most, 30 hours of credit from non-WFU sources.
- Twelve (12) hours is the maximum allowed to transfer back to WFU in one summer.
- A student must make a C (not C minus) or higher for a course to transfer. An official transcript must be submitted regardless of the grade earned and regardless of whether the student wants WFU credit.
- An official transcript must be submitted if a student withdraws from or officially drops a course or courses.
- No basic/divisional/major/minor/quantitative reasoning/cultural diversity may be taken on a pass/fail basis. Pass/fail must be approved prior to registering for the course.
- Transfer work does not affect the student’s WFU GPA. Courses may not be repeated elsewhere to replace grades earned at WFU.
- No student on social or academic probation or suspension from WFU may take coursework at another institution and have that work transferred to WFU for credit.
- More credit may not be given for a course than is given for the equivalent WFU course.
- A student cannot take at WFU a course that is equivalent to one previously taken elsewhere for credit. A student cannot take elsewhere a course that is equivalent to ACC 111, even if the student does not want to get WFU credit for the course.
