Transfer Student Credit

Academic work completed at other accredited colleges and universities will be accepted at full value for courses passed with a grade of “C” or better provided they are comparable to Wingate University’s curriculum. The Registrar, in consultation with the appropriate department chair(s), evaluates coursework to determine equivalency. The maximum number of course hours that may transfer from a two-year institution is 64 semester hours. A maximum of 90 semester hours will be accepted from four-year institutions.

To complete a transfer evaluation, the Office of the Registrar will need official copies of transcripts from all previous colleges and universities attended.  Advanced Placement and other types of credit-by-examination will be evaluated according to Wingate's established guidelines.  Scores must come from The College Board or other official source (see below).  These official academic records or test scores should be sent to the Office of Admissions before the student enrolls at Wingate.

North Carolina Community Colleges...................................................

Wingate University has signed an articulation agreement with North Carolina Community Colleges. Students who complete an A.A. or A.S. degree will have many of those credits apply to Wingate's Core (foundational requirements).  See the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) for more information.  All NC community colleges share a common course numbering system. Our NC community college Transfer Guide outlines many of the credits that will transfer to Wingate.

AP Credit...........................................................................................

Generally scores of "3" or better are accepted on AP exams for Wingate credit. Individual departments determine minimum scores and amount/type of credit awarded. Our AP Credit Guide outlines current tests/scores and Wingate course equivalents.

CLEP Credit.......................................................................................

Scores of 50 or higher on subject exams of the College Level Examination Programs generally receive Wingate credit. Please see our CLEP Guide for specific equivalents as determined by individual departments.

DANTES Credit..................................................................................

Scores that rank the student in at least the 50th percentile of the testing group on DANTES Subject Standardized Tests generally receive Wingate credit. Please see our DANTES Guide for specific equivalents as determined by individual departments.

International Baccalaureate Credit.......................................................

Individual departments will consider IB credit if the student has earned a minimum score of 5 on a Higher Level Examination.  A copy of the syllabus for each subject passed at this level will be submitted to the appropriate department.

Other Colleges and Universities............................................................

Credit earned from other regionally-accredited universities will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis for equivalency with Wingate courses.  Questions about equivalency are directed to individual departments if a question arises. In some cases, the student may be requested to provide a course description; a notation to this effect will appear on the transfer evaluation.

Credit earned at colleges and universities that are not regionally-accredited will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis by individual departments. Students will need to provide course syllabi, a catalog and other information as requested for departmental evaluation.
