How can I learn more about transferring credits from another school?
Wayne State University
Great question Mark! Our course equivalency tool allows students to search any institution (only search key name ex. "Rice" for Rice University) and see all classes WSU has ever reviewed to determine if we offer a similar course. If you see there is an "equivalent" course offered at WSU, then your credits will transfer! https://wayne.edu/transfercredit/equivalency We also have more in depth transfer plans for student transferring from Michigan community colleges: https://wayne.edu/transfercredit/plans
