You’re considered a transfer for admission purposes if you have attended college since graduating from high school (not including the summer immediately following high school graduation).
We require a minimum of a 2.50 transfer GPA. If your transfer GPA is less than a 2.50, then we may request additional material from you.
If you earned your college credit while you were still in high school (e.g., through Running Start), follow the steps for freshman admission. If you are an international student, visit the international admission page.
Use the transfer equivalency database to see how your courses match up with WSU equivalencies and find out which courses you should be taking to meet your WSU graduation requirements.
If your transfer courses were taken on a quarterly system, you’ll need to convert them to semester credits to see how your credit hours match WSU requirements. Simply multiply your quarter credit hours by .67 to determine how many semester credits you’ll receive. Using this equation, 5 quarter credits would convert to 3.35 semester credits.
Washington community colleges offer their courses on the quarter system and WSU Tri-Cities is on the semester system. Transferring your credit from quarter to semester is easy! Simply multiply your credit hours by .66 to determine how many semester credits you’ll receive.
