While you already have some college experience, each campus has its own unique policies, procedures and culture. The information below aims to answer some of your most commonly asked questions as you transfer and begin your studies with us.
Once all your paperwork is complete and Admissions has official transcripts, the Office of the Registrar will complete a transfer evaluation. This evaluation shows exactly what will transfer and what each course will transfer in as. Courses from an accredited college or university completed with a “C” grade or better will generally transfer to Wingate University. The same goes for courses that fall under a broad liberal arts curriculum.
It depends on how closely the program at your previous college or university matches our program and core curriculum. Are you keeping the same major? Did you take basic general education courses or technical/vocational courses? Match the “Wingate equivalents” on your transfer evaluation with the courses listed on your degree checklist, which can be found on myGate or on the website under your program. Mark through the credits you can apply, add up the hours you still need and divide by 15. Fifteen units is a typical semester load. The resulting number shows approximately how long it will take. This does not factor in summer school or course substitutions that may impact your program of study. Please contact the Office of the Registrar if you have more questions. They’ll answer every one.
The cost to attend Wingate varies for each student and is dependent on what merit based scholarship you receive and what need based aid you qualify for by completing the FAFSA. Once you’ve been admitted and have completed the FAFSA, we will be able to provide you with a financial aid estimator. This estimator will be emailed to you using the email address on your admissions application. The estimator will let you know how much it will cost for you to attend Wingate University.
Please reach out to Jodi Meer in the Registrar's Office for assistance with the evaluation of your incoming credits, receipt of transcripts, and any other questions about receiving credit for prior coursework.
