Each degree includes areas of study representing the breadth requirements to be completed. By completing these courses, students will develop skills and understanding related to the College wide outcomes – communication, critical thinking, information/technology, and community engagement – that shape the overall objectives of each degree.

Residence Requirements

A minimum of 30 credits that apply toward the degree earned at WWCC, and;

A minimum of two (2) quarters enrolled at WWCC, and;

Last 12 credits to be earned in Professional-Technical programs at WWCC unless waived by the Vice President of Instruction. This requirement does not apply to students earning transfer degrees [Associate of Arts degrees (AA), Associate of Science-Transfer degrees (AS-T), Major Related Program Direct Transfer Agreements (MRP/DTA)].

Students who leave WWCC without a transfer degree may transfer the required remaining credits from an accredited college back to WWCC to have their degree posted. Students need to meet the above requirements and send an official transcript from the transfer college to WWCC. For more information, please contact the Office of Admissions and Records.

Transfer Policy and Information

Walla Walla Community College offers courses in most academic areas. These courses meet requirements for associates’ degrees and will transfer to baccalaureate institutions within guidelines established by those schools. The courses and degrees offered are designed to enable the student to make a successful transition to a baccalaureate institution. Students who plan to transfer to a specific college or university should work with a transfer advisor both at the community college and at the baccalaureate institution they plan to attend.

While the agreements with Baccalaureate institutions assure the transfer of credit, the admission to a particular university or university program is not assured. Each institution has separate admission criteria which can be based on grades, prerequisite coursework, test scores, and other considerations.

Students who plan to transfer to a university should attend a college transfer workshop, work with a community college advisor, and make early contact with their intended transfer school.

Many universities have representatives who visit WWCC. Students are encouraged to visit with these representatives when they are on campus.

Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to become knowledgeable about the admission and graduation requirements of the baccalaureate institution he or she plans to attend.

For more information about transfer programs, contact Advising/Student Success Center (509.527.4262) or the Transfer Center (509.527.3679) in Walla Walla and (509.758.1721) in Clarkston.

Policy - Transfer of Credit

Students may request for previously earned credit to be evaluated and transferred to their WWCC academic record (See policy 7350 - Transfer of Credit and Alternate College Credit Policy and Procedure). To have credits evaluated, students should complete a WWCC Application for Admission and have their previous college(s) send an official transcript to the WWCC Office of Admissions and Records (OAR). Once accepted to WWCC, students are required to fill out the Transcript Evaluation Request form available online on the Admissions page, indicating the degree they are seeking and the transcripts requesting to be evaluated. 

WWCC will review transcripts with credits from a regionally accredited institution with grades of D (1.0) or better, provided they are essentially equivalent in academic level and nature to classes offered at WWCC. If a course does not meet the equivalent of a course offered at WWCC, elective credit may be awarded. Courses are evaluated based on the degree or certificate the student is pursuing. A student must complete at least 30 credits at WWCC in order for WWCC to confer the degree.

Reciprocity Agreement - Transfer of credits within the Washington State Community and Technical College system

Washington Community and Technical Colleges (CTC) offer reciprocity to students transferring within the CTC system who are pursuing the Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) Degree or the Associate in Science-Transfer (AS-T) Degree. Students who have completed an individual course that met distribution degree requirements or fulfilled entire areas of their degree requirements at one college will be considered to have met those same requirements if they plan to complete the same degree when they transfer to another community or technical college in Washington. These degree requirements include Communication Skills, Quantitative Skills, or one or more Distribution Area requirements. Students must initiate the review process and must be prepared to provide necessary documentation. For complete information, students should contact the Vice President of Instruction or the office of Admissions and Records.

Washington State Community and Technical College: Common Course Numbering

Common course numbering (CCN) for both academic and professional/technical courses was developed to provide ease of transfer between Washington State Community and Technical Colleges. Courses with these common course numberings are identified with an & after the subject prefix (ex. BIOL& 160), and are considered equivalent across all participating institutions. WWCC transfers these courses accordingly.

Transfer of International College Credits

Credits earned at a higher education institution outside the United States may be evaluated for transfer purposes. Transcripts must be translated and evaluated course-by-course by a service listed as a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation services.

Awarding Academic Credit for Prior Learning (ACPL)

Academic credit for prior learning refers to the knowledge and skills gained through work and life experience; through military training and experience; and through formal and informal education and training from in-state and out-of-state institutions See policy 7350 - Transfer of Credit and Alternate College Credit Policy and Procedure). WWCC follows the policies as outlined by the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (CTC), RCW 28B.77.239, RCW 28B.10.053, as well as the policies established by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.

To award ACPL, WWCC evaluates the knowledge, skills and abilities a student has gained through prior learning in relation to the knowledge, skills and abilities a student would gain by completing a specific course. If outcomes of prior learning equal outcomes of a specific course, then credit for this non-traditional learning may be awarded. Students must fill out the ACPL Request for Transcribed Credit form on the WWCC website to initiate the request for this kind of evaluation. A fee may be required before transcribing the credit onto a student’s transcript. ACPL is posted on a student’s transcript per the SBCTC Coding manual.

ACPL can be transcribed under the following categories:

Standardized Testing: Commonly accepted higher education equivalency exams that are documented via transcript or other official record. Credit for Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and Cambridge “A” and “AS” Level Exams are awarded credit based on the SBCTC Credit Policy for Dual Credit Exams and RCW 28B.77.239. Currently accepted credit for College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) are posted on the WWCC website. Other higher education equivalency exams may be evaluated on an individual basis.

Course Challenge: Challenge exams are sufficiently comprehensive to determine that the student has the same knowledge and skills as those students who enroll in and successfully complete the course. Upon completion of the Course Challenge, the student is awarded credit reflecting the final grade earned on the Course Challenge, if the grade is a C or higher.

Extra-Institutional Learning: WWCC may award credit based on knowledge and skills acquired outside the institution and objectively verified through industry certifications, such as the NCLEX-RN; industry-recognized testing/training, such as that addressed by the American Council on Education (ACE), particularly for the military; and occupational crosswalks, such as those for police, firefighters, and AmeriCorps.

Prior Experiential Learning: WWCC may award credit based on knowledge and skills acquired through experience alone, evaluated by qualified faculty via evaluation of a compilation of work. All prior learning assessment credits in this category are awarded through a prior experiential learning portfolio review, as in the HS21+ program.

Washington Reverse Articulation Program

Washington Community and Technical Colleges (CTC) have developed and adapted the following guidelines for reciprocity of transfer coursework from the Washington State Public Baccalaureates. If a student transfers an individual course that meets a Communication Skills, Quantitative Skills, or Distribution Requirement at the sending baccalaureate-granting institution for a specific bachelor’s degree, that course is considered to have met that same requirement at the receiving CTC for an associate’s degree, even if this course does not have an exact equivalent and even if the course credit is awarded through prior learning credit or completed at the 300 or 400 level.

If a student transfers an individual course that meets a Diversity Requirement at the sending baccalaureate-granting institution for a specific bachelor’s degree, that course is considered to have met that requirement at the receiving CTC for a specific associate’s degree, even if this course does not have an exact equivalent and even if the course credit is awarded through prior learning credit.

The receiving college retains the right to impose unique, local prerequisite and graduation requirements. Such requirements may include but are not limited to learning communities/coordinated studies requirements, writing-intensive course requirements, and/or physical education/health requirements.

Students have the responsibility to complete all materials required for admission and to submit the application on or before the published deadlines.

Students have the responsibility to plan their courses of study by referring to the specific published degree requirements of the college or academic program in which they intend to earn a bachelor’s degree.

When a student changes a major or degree program, the student assumes full responsibility for meeting the new requirements.

Students who complete the general education requirements at any public four-year institution of higher education in Washington, when admitted to another public four-year institution, will have met the lower division general education requirements of the institution to which they transfer.

College and University Rights and Responsibilities

Colleges and universities have the right and authority to determine program requirements and course offerings in accordance with their institutional missions.

Colleges and universities have the responsibility to communicate and publish their requirements and course offerings to students and the public, including information about student transfer rights and responsibilities.

Colleges and universities have the responsibility to communicate their admission and transfer related decisions to students in writing (electronic or paper).

If the college determines a student has completed a degree or certificate, the college has the right to confer that degree onto the student’s record.

Transfer Agreements

Direct Transfer Agreements with Baccalaureate Institutions

The baccalaureate (four-year) colleges and universities in Washington state listed below subscribe to the Inter-college Relations Commissions (ICRC) Guidelines for Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA). The DTA associates’ degrees are recognized as fulfilling most, if not all, of the general education requirements for these institutions. Students who complete a DTA will normally be granted junior standing upon admission. Students should check with their intended transfer institution for further details regarding any additional general education, major prerequisites and admission requirements. This list is subject to change. See your advisor for updated information and details of transfer.

Other Transfer Agreements

Walla Walla Community College has articulation agreements with a number of baccalaureate institutions such as Central Washington University, Eastern Oregon University, Lewis-Clark State College, University of Idaho, Washington State University, Oregon State University, and Western Governors University. For the most accurate list of all transfer agreements, visit www.wwcc.edu/transfer or call the Transfer Center at: 509.527.4262

Major Related Program Agreements (MRP)

To help transfer students better prepare for the junior year, two-year and baccalaureate institutions work together to create transfer associate pathways outlining the appropriate courses for students to be well prepared to enter the major upon transfer. Major Related Program (MRP) pathways follow one of the two statewide transfer agreements - the DTA format or the Associate in Science (AS-T) format. (See Transfer Degrees Summary Chart for a list of MRP’s)

Associate in Arts Degree Requirements

(Direct Transfer Agreement)

This degree is designed for students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate institution with junior standing. Students pursuing this degree should plan their programs at Walla Walla Community College in accordance with the requirements of the institution to which they plan to transfer.

To earn the Associate in Arts Degree (AA-DTA), a student must complete at least 90 credit hours in designated college transfer courses numbered 100 or above with a minimum college-level GPA of 2.0, and include a minimum of 63 credit hours in general education courses to fulfill the learning outcomes as described in this section.

Important Notice

Within the Associate in Arts Degree, 75 of the 90 credits should be fully transferrable as defined by the receiving baccalaureate institution. Transfer students should plan their degrees in accordance with the requirements of the institution to which they plan to transfer. They should also be aware that colleges within universities may have admission requirements significantly higher than the 2.0 GPA required for the AA Degree, and they may look at performance in specific classes in determining a student’s admission.

Selecting the appropriate courses in fulfilling the AA Degree saves students time and expense in completing the requirements of a bachelor’s degree. Courses that are considered upper division (junior-senior level) at a baccalaureate institution may need to be repeated if taken at a community college.

Students may meet graduation requirements in the catalog current at the time of their initial enrollment, provided enrollment toward their educational objective is continuous (from quarter to quarter) during the academic years involved. Otherwise, graduation requirements will be those listed in the catalog in use at the time of graduation.

Students intending to transfer courses from professional-technical degrees should consult with an advisor/navigator in Student Services in Clarkston or the Student Success Center in Walla Walla and an advisor at the baccalaureate institution where they plan to transfer.
