Procedure to Transfer Credit from another institution to Washington State Community College
- To begin the process of transferring credit from other institutions, first, you need to complete an Application for Admission to WSCC. There is no charge to apply, and you can complete the Application in person or online here.
- Next, contact each college and/or university that you have attended and request an official transcript. An official copy must be sent directly to us from the sending institution. Electronic transcripts via the Articulation & Transfer Clearinghouse (ATC) are also acceptable.
Request the official transcript be mailed to:
Washington State Community College
710 Colegate Drive
Marietta, Ohio 45750
- Transcripts are evaluated course by course based on the catalog description from the term the course(s) were taken.
- Transfer credit will be accepted for successfully completed college-level courses from institutions of higher education which are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission or other regional accrediting commissions recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
- Please allow 4-6 weeks for the transfer process to be completed. You will receive a letter informing you of the transferred courses.
You will need to submit a request to have your official WSCC transcript sent to your new institution. Please follow the instructions for requesting a transcript from the WSCC Records Office. It is important to keep in mind that most institutions will not accept a hand-delivered transcript that has been issued to the student. Be sure to ask the receiving institution for clarification on their transcript requirements to ensure acceptance. If you provided a transcript as part of the application process to your new institution before your final semester at WSCC, please remember to also submit an official WSCC transcript after your final term concludes so all of your credit can be evaluated for transfer.
Selective Service registration Federal law requires most males living in the United States between the ages of 18 and 26 to be registered with the Selective Service System. Students who are required to register and have not done so are ineligible for various federal and state aid programs and are charged the non-Ohio resident tuition.
If you are an Ohio resident and are being charged non-resident fees, it is likely your selective service registration number is not on file with the college. Once you submit your number, the non-residence charge will be removed.
Males can register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday at www.sss.gov or any U.S. post office.
What is the difference between graduation and commencement?
Graduation – when a student is awarded a degree or certificate once they have satisfied all requirements. Students do not officially graduate until all grades have been entered in their last attending semester. Upon verification from the Records Office, a diploma will be mailed to the graduate.
Commencement – a ceremony that allows students, family, and friends to celebrate the student’s academic accomplishments. Participation in the ceremony does not mean the student has graduated (because final grades aren’t due until after the ceremony date). Students do not receive their diploma at the ceremony – it will be mailed to the graduate upon verification of satisfied requirements.
Steps to Graduate
- Prior to graduation, make sure your program of study is declared with the Records Office. We cannot graduate you in a program that you have not declared.
- Complete the requirements outlined in your degree audit and catalog.
- It is important to meet regularly with your Advisor to ensure you are staying on track.
- If you have attended a previous college or university, be sure to send your transcript(s) to the WSCC Records Office in your first term to allow for accurate timing of transferring applicable credit.
- Degree Evaluation – during your final semester of your program of study, the Records Office and your Advisor will review your academic history to confirm all requirements have been met. If applicable, your advisor will submit any necessary course substitutions.
You will receive communication via your WSCC email confirming that you are eligible to graduate at the end of your last semester. This email will include information about submitting your request to participate in the Commencement Ceremony and a survey to complete.
Please note that diplomas will not be mailed until after grades have been submitted for the term, and the Records Office has verified that you have satisfied your degree requirements. Students do not receive their diploma at the commencement ceremony.
WSCC designates one day for commencement and holds different ceremonies throughout the day. There is a commencement held, at the end of spring semester, for Arts & Sciences, Business Technologies, Engineering, Industrial Technologies, Public Services, and Health & Wellness. Details regarding each ceremony will be distributed via your WSCC email address when you have been recognized as an eligible graduation candidate.
Spring Graduates – Spring graduates are eligible to participate in the spring commencement at the end of the completed term.
Fall Graduates - Fall graduates are eligible to participate in the spring commencement following the completed fall term.
Summer Graduates - Summer graduates are eligible to participate in the spring commencement following the completed summer term.
Health Sciences Graduates – The areas of Health Sciences hold individual pinning ceremonies that are organized by the Health Sciences division. Graduates of a Health Sciences program are welcome to participate in the spring commencement in addition to their pinning, if desired.
