    Ways to Transfer to EWU:

    Direct Transfer Degree from a Community College

    There are significant differences between community college degrees that are "Direct Transfer Degrees" and the community college degrees that are not. Direct Transfer Degrees that have been approved by EWU are liberal arts degrees that include a diverse group of general education requirements. 

    If you complete an approved Direct Transfer Degree, you will:

    1. Transfer to EWU as a junior with 90 credits.
    2. Have satisfied EWU's general education core requirements.
    3. Have satisfied EWU's competency and proficiency in computer literacy.
    4. Have satisfied EWU's competencies and proficiencies in Math and English composition. (NOTE: Direct Transfer Degrees do not cover required coursework in a major area. For instance, students seeking a business degree at EWU will still be required to complete English composition and Math requirements, either by coursework at a community college, or by coursework or challenge test at EWU.)
    5. Probably need approximately 90 credits (6 quarters) at EWU to complete a Business degree.

    Transferring without an AA degree from either a community college or University

    If you have not completed a Direct Transfer Degree, you will:

    1. Transfer to EWU with credits based on a course-by-course evaluation of your transcripts.
    2. Be required to satisfy each of EWU's general education core requirements.
    3. Be required to satisfy EWU's competency and proficiency in computer literacy by coursework or challenge test at EWU.
    4. Be required to satisfy EWU's competencies and proficiencies in Math and English composition, either by coursework or challenge test at EWU.
