Students who have completed the Ohio Transfer Module and an Associate degree will have met the requirements of the General Education program at Wittenberg (see below). The entire 60 semester hours or the quarter hour equivalent of the A.A. or A.S. degree will count toward Wittenberg's graduation requirements. Up to a total of 80 semester hours can be transferred.
Students not completing either an Associate degree or the Ohio Transfer Module may need to complete additional courses to fulfill the Wittenberg General Education requirements.
For both groups of students, before you have been accepted and have deposited, we will work with you to do a preliminary transcript evaluation to determine how your credits transfer.
As an incoming undeclared transfer student you are assigned an academic adviser. If you plan to declare a major now, here is the form. Major Declaration

Guides for the new (beginning 2012-13) semester system:
The Ohio State University
Guides for the older quarter system:
Degree credit for course work taken at any other regionally-accredited institution is acceptable toward the individual's course work in the Wittenberg program. Only course work with a grade of C or better is eligible for transfer.
Transfer credit from semester system institution is evaluated and placed onto the academic record on a 1:1 ratio, e.g., 3 semester hours are evaluated as 3 semester hours on the academic record.
Transfer credit from quarter system institution is evaluated and converted to semester hours on a .67:1 ratio, e.g., 5 - quarter hours are evaluated as 3.35 semester hours on the academic record.
To receive credits applied to a major, the student may be asked to present a portfolio of work, syllabi, or other materials to assist with this determination and to establish placement in a major or minor program. At least 50% of the credits required for a major program must be taken in residence.
In applying transfer credits to general education requirements, 3 semester hours are sufficient to fulfill a 4 semester - hour requirement and in addition two 3 semester hour courses are sufficient to fulfill the two course 8 credit hours requirement.
Although the grades granted for the transfer appear on the transcript, they are not factored into the GPA.
Course work taken at another institution does not count under the repeat rule; i.e., the grade earned at the other institution does not replace the grade earned at Wittenberg.
Request to Transfer Credit Form must be filed with the Registrar prior to taking the work.
