The Transfer Evaluation System (TES) is a tool you can use to see how coursework from other regionally accredited colleges and universities typically transfers to Wartburg College. The list of courses in TES is not comprehensive as we are continuously updating TES with more courses and institutions.
Prospective Students. The information in TES is your guide to course equivalencies between Wartburg and other regionally accredited colleges and universities. Wartburg may accept transfer credit for courses and from institutions that are not yet listed in TES. We are continuously updating TES to accommodate the learning outcomes for our students. A final review of transfer credits will be completed after you are admitted to Wartburg and have submitted an official college transcript. The Registrar’s Office will then let you know how the courses will apply toward your degree requirements.
Even though a course equivalency may be listed, the course may not transfer for your individual situation or degree program. Therefore, you must submit official college transcripts for all completed coursework before receiving a final transfer evaluation.
Some transfer courses will be directly equivalent to a Wartburg course, and some transfer courses will meet a Wartburg essential education requirement. Other courses will transfer as general elective credit toward the 36 course credits required for a Wartburg degree.
TES is subject to revisions, and equivalencies may change. The catalog dates for each institution reflect the latest revision date for transfer equivalencies from the other institution. Even though a course is listed does not guarantee that the course is currently offered by either institution or will be offered in the future.
Current Students. The information in TES is your guide to course equivalencies between Wartburg and other regionally accredited colleges and universities. Even if a course equivalency is identified in TES, you must submit the Request to Earn Credit at Another Institution form to the Registrar’s Office to determine if the transfer course can be applied toward your specific degree program.
