A Destination for Transfer Students
Transfer students come to Warren Wilson College because they are ready for an education they could only get here. They come from both community colleges and other four year colleges and universities, and are looking to gain skills and experience through our educational program that integrates the liberal arts, community engagement, and meaningful work on campus.
Admission to Warren Wilson College is a selective process based on both the potential and academic qualifications of the applicant. All available information is considered, and we holistically review all materials submitted in your application.
Generally, to be considered a transfer student, a minimum of 12 semester credits of transferable college-level credit must have been completed or be in the process of being completed. Potential Warren Wilson College applicants will possess a high school diploma and be in good academic standing at their current college or university.
The average transfer GPA for admitted students is a 3.5, though transfer students were admitted with GPA’s ranging from 2.5 to 4.0 depending on other qualifications. For some transfer students, we may ask to review high school transcripts to assess academic potential.
Transfer credit is granted for comparable college-level courses in which a “C-” or better was earned. Courses graded on a Pass/Fail or Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis do not transfer. Warren Wilson College accepts a maximum of 64 credits from a two-year college program. For courses transferred, grades are not included in the computation of a student’s grade point average.
