Transferring a Course to Another Institution

 

Students who do not wish to complete a degree at WIU and only want to take one or more online courses for transfer to another institution need to be admitted as non-degree seeking students. Please review the criteria below to determine your eligibility status as a non-degree seeking student.

• Students who have already completed a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution should NOT use the undergraduate application but need to apply through the School of Graduate Studies. Access the Graduate Application by clicking on the Apply Now logo located in the upper right corner of the WIU home page (wiu.edu) and clicking on the “Graduate Application” link. Carefully read through the admission criteria posted on the web site and proceed as indicated or call the School of Graduate Studies at 309/298-1806 for assistance.

• Students who have not yet earned a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution must submit an Undergraduate Non-Degree Application. Access the Undergraduate Non-Degree Application by clicking on the Apply Now logo located in the upper right corner of the WIU home page (wiu.edu) and clicking on “Undergraduate Non-Degree Application” link. Carefully read the online instructions and proceed with section 1 to electronically submit the application and the $25 non-refundable application fee. Applicants wishing to submit a paper application and pay the $30 non-refundable application fee with a check or money order should choose section 2 to download the application in an Adobe Acrobat PDF file. Applicants must also complete and submit the “Request to Register for Courses” form found on the Undergraduate Non-Degree Application web site. The form can also be located at http://www.wiu.edu/distance_learning/pdfs/RequesttoRegister.pdf.
