I want to attend

Whether you are coming to WSU from a community college or another four-year institution, starting fresh at a new school creates unique challenges. We're here make things as easy as possible at every step along the way.

Unofficial transfer credit evaluation

How many credits will transfer from your current school? Good question — and one that we can answer. Simply send your transcripts or grade reports to us at transfer@wayne.edu. Once you apply for admission and send official transcripts, you will receive an official Transfer Credit Evaluation.

Transfer admission requirements

If you do not meet college criteria — if you have 12 transferable credits and not 24, for example — then you should submit your high school transcript to be used for an admission decision.

Transfer plans

Transfer plans for Michigan community colleges show you exactly which courses to take based on your planned major at Wayne State. This helps ensure that you will be able to transfer the maximum number of credits when it's time.


The generous Transfer Merit Scholarship is based on academic merit and is available to students coming transferring from a community college during fall or winter semester. WSU also offers a range of private and academic program scholarships.

Articulation agreements

Agreements with select community colleges result in benefits such as an increase in transfer credit beyond the usual 64 credits to students who complete the requirements.

Request transcripts from Michigan colleges

Ask your current college to send your official transcripts to Wayne State via Parchment or through the mail:

Office of Undergraduate Admissions
Wayne State University
P.O. Box 02759
Detroit, MI 48202

Meet with an advisor

You can meet with a WSU advisor as a prospective student — you do not have to be admitted to Wayne State first. An advisor can help ensure you are taking classes that will transfer and apply to your WSU degree. Contact the University Advising Center at 313-577-2680 or univadvising@wayne.edu to schedule an appointment.
