transfer student most faq will my courses transfer
Transfer Student Most FAQ: Will My Courses Transfer?
  • YES. If it’s academic credit from an accredited institution, TWU will post the course to the transcript.
  • BUT – just because it posted to the TWU transcript, does not mean the course will apply to the degree.
  • This is why articulation agreements are so helpful to students.
