UWG will consider transfer credit for classes taken at the Associate or Bachelor level from colleges or universities we determine to be properly accredited. At a minimum, regional accreditation is required for classes to be considered. We do not consider credit for classes taken for Associate’s or Bachelor’s of Applied Arts or Applied Science programs, Certificates, nor any occupational degrees. Courses which received a grade of “W”, “WF”, “F”,”U” or an equivalent are not awarded. Additionally, transfer credit is not awarded for learning support courses. Please make note that the following list is not exhaustive as it includes only those courses which have transferred to the University of West Georgia in the past. Official transfer course evaluations will be completed after acceptance to UWG
