Submitting Transcripts for Evaluation
Contact your previous schools and request official transcripts be sent to the following address:
1840 South 1300 East
Salt Lake City, UT 84105
Questions? Email email@example.com.
Ensure your grades, degrees, and any credentials earned (e.g. Interstate Passport) are recorded on your transcript prior to requesting it be sent to Westminster College. Transcripts are evaluated for transfer credit according to guidelines published in the Academic Catalog. You will be mailed a transfer evaluation detailing transfer credits awarded by the Registrar's Office usually within 48 hours of the receipt of your transcripts. For information about how your specific coursework from other Utah institutions transfers to Westminster, please see TransferUtah.
Transcripts from international institutions must include a course-by-course (ICAP) evaluation from World Education Services or another approved professional evaluation service.
Pre-Approval for Transfer
Current students considering transferring work from another institution should get pre-approval using the Transfer Credit Authorization form to ensure smooth application of transfer credits and that transfer work will not conflict with the College’s residency requirement which states:
Undergraduate students earning baccalaureate degrees from Westminster must complete a minimum of 36 hours of coursework at the college. In addition, undergraduate students must complete in residence:
- their last 36 hours of course work
- at least 12 hours of upper division course work in any major
- at least 8 hours of course work in any minor
Students with extenuating circumstances such as class or work conflicts, courses not being offered, pending job offers, etc. can file a Residency Policy Appeal for transfer credit to be considered as an exception to this policy.
