The transfer process is a vital link in Washington’s higher education system. All colleges and universities (two- and four-year, public and private) are committed to making the transition from one college or university to another as seamless as possible – to assist our students and to meet the state’s goals for bachelor degree attainment.
Students have the right to seek clarification regarding their transfer evaluation and may request the reconsideration of any aspect of that evaluation. In response, the institution will follow established practices and processes for reviewing its transfer credit decisions. Students who encounter other transfer difficulties have the right to seek resolution. Each institution will have a defined process for resolution that is published and readily available to students.
If concerns are not resolved after following every avenue at the college level, the Washington Student Achievement Council encourages students to complete the Transfer Issues Report Form. This Transfer Issue Online Report allows students to provide information on their transfer experience, which will be used to investigate further avenues for resolution and improve the transfer system in Washington.
Students may complete the form anonymously, or may include name and/or email address if a response is requested or desired. Alternatively, the following questions can be pasted into email and returned to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Name: Supplying your name is optional, but it will allow us to assist you more efficiently if you have specific questions or concerns.
