Undergraduate Transfer Credit Problem

Transfer credit is known to be problematic or not accepted for these courses at other institutions

Certain courses at other institutions have one or more problems that cause them not to be eligible for transfer credit at WFU. Also, many introductory physics sequences available while studying abroad are not structured to allow for transfer credit for either PHY 113 or 114.

The following institutions also have known problems:
