Transfer Credit

Does Wake Tech give credit for courses taken elsewhere?

Wake Tech's transfer credit policy can be found in the college catalog in the Transfer Credits section.

International students will have to review the college's transfer credit guidelines specifically for them.


How do I get started?

Submit your official college transcripts as part of the admissions process.

For transfer credit evaluations, Wake Tech can evaluate only official transcripts that are sealed and unopened or official e-transcripts that are sent directly from the previous college.


How are courses from other colleges evaluated?

Transcripts are evaluated by the Registrar's Office, division deans and department heads.


How can I tell which courses transferred to Wake Tech?

Log in to Self-Service and go to "Student Planning." Select "Transfer Credits" from the "Academics" menu at the top.


Does Wake Tech accept quarter-hour courses?

Quarter-hour courses must be reviewed by a division dean. The quarter hours will be converted to semester hours, and the semester hours must be equivalent to the Wake Tech course. You may lose some credits in the conversion.


What if I want to appeal a decision on a transfer course?

If you do not receive transfer credit for a course and believe that you should have received credit, here are the steps to submit an appeal:

  1. Submit Form 727: Transfer Credit Evaluation/Re-evaluation Request
  2. Attach the syllabus for the specific year in which the course was taken
  3. Email the information to [email protected] or send it to Registration and Records

What if I change my major or program of study?

Transfer credits may count differently in a new major or program of study. Work with your advisor to determine whether a new evaluation of your transfer credits is needed.


I'm not a Wake Tech student. How can I find out if Wake Tech will give me credits?

First, check the library of courses in the national Transfer Evaluation System for which Wake Tech has previously granted credit.

If your course is not listed, email the following information to [email protected]:

  • Full name
  • Previous college and course
  • Course description
  • Credit hours

Students who have submitted official transcripts for evaluation receive priority.
