3. Transfer Credit

   

Evaluations of credits earned from other institutions are made after a student has been selected for admission and has indicated an intention to enroll. Students may not assume that credit will be granted for all courses completed at their transfer institution. Transfer grades do not affect degree requirements, grade point average or class rank. While there is no limit to the number of courses which may be transferred, William and Mary requires that at least 60 semester credits, including a minimum of 15 credits in the major, be earned in residence at the College in Williamsburg.

Transfer credit will not be granted for freshman English courses of more than one semester which are devoted primarily to writing or composition.

Transfer students who have not fulfilled their lower-division writing credit at William and Mary may submit a portfolio for evaluation [PDF]to the Writing Program Director.
