About Transfer Credits 

One of the most common questions potential transfer students ask is “Will my credits transfer?” It is important to know the difference between transferability and applicability of transfer credits.

Transferability means the credit hours earned from another school will be posted to your Wright State transcript. You will receive transfer credit for any college-level coursework for which you received a grade of D or higher. Developmental courses will not transfer to Wright State.

Applicability means the transfer credits posted to your Wright State transcript apply toward your degree. The applicability of credit depends on previously established course equivalencies, statewide policies, and evaluations by academic advisors or faculty. Credits may be transferable, but not always applicable to your degree requirements at Wright State.
