Transfer of Credit

Credit may be given for coursework completed at another accredited college or university if it meets the criteria set forth in the USW Catalog in effect at the time of the student's admission to USW. Transfer students from an accredited college or university must complete at least 30 upper level hours at University of the Southwest plus other institutional or degree specific requirements. Developmental courses or F's will not be accepted.
