Transfer & Test Credit
A William & Mary degree is much more than a list of courses. While at least half of the credits applied toward a degree must be earned at W&M, most new students enter with some credit for test scores or prior college course work.
Get An Early Start
Getting your transcripts and test scores to the [[transfercredit,Transfer Services Coordinator]] (TSC) in our office well before you arrive at the college is the best way to ensure a smooth entry and registration process.
While the full academic transfer policy appears in the Undergraduate Catalog (see the Requirements for Degree section), here are tips for our new students:
- AP/IB/A-Level/CLEP, and other Pre-Matriculation Credits
- Check on your transfer credits to see if they have been evaluated.
- Find out what to do if your credits have not gone through.
- The fine print – learn how courses are evaluated.
- Credit from Foreign Institutions
- COLL Curriculum Rules and Requirements for Incoming Transfer Students
Where to send your Official Scores or Transcripts
Students seeking transfer credit must have their official scores and/or transcripts sent directly from the awarding institution (university, ETS, etc.) to W&M.
Official score reports and/or transcripts can be sent electronically by the institution directly to W&M through a service like Parchment or National Student Clearinghouse. Electronic delivery of AP/IB scores is also accepted if sent directly from CollegeBoard or IBO to W&M.
For students sending through postal mail, use the following address:
