Transferring Credit Into Waubonsee
from Other Regionally-Accredited Colleges
Students looking to transfer in previous college credit follow the same enrollment process, but with a few additional steps:
Submit Official Transcripts
Waubonsee will need official transcripts from all of your previous college(s) and universities. Have them sent to:
Registration and Records
Waubonsee Community College
Route 47 at Waubonsee Drive
Sugar Grove, IL
Submit Transcript Evaluation Request Form (TERF)
Once you have an X-number and can log in to mywcc, you should complete and submit the online Transcript Evaluation Request Form (TERF). Once this form has been submitted and your official transcripts received, Waubonsee's Transcript Analyst will begin evaluating your prior coursework and credits. You will receive an email when the evaluation is complete, which can take up to four weeks.
While you wait for your results, you are free to complete any remaining steps to enrollment, including meeting with a counselor or advisor (to get an unofficial transcript evaluation) and registering for courses.
