Types of Transfer Degrees
Washington State Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) associate’s degree: Satisfies lower-division UCORE (general education) and grants junior standing. This includes DTA-Major Related Programs degrees.
Washington State associate in science-transfer (AS-T) degree: Satisfies most of lower-division UCORE, grants junior standing, and incorporates STEM-related major requirements.
Out-of-State transfer degrees: May satisfy lower-division UCORE if general education framework approximates UCORE.
Other degrees: Evaluation on a course-by-course basis only.
Transfer courses will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis to fulfill University Common Requirements (UCORE), major requirements, or elective credits. If you have not completed a degree, we can help you complete it with WSU courses via reverse transfer.
