Transfer of Academic Credit

Transfer to WISR of Academic Credit Received from Other Institutions

Subject to the specific qualifications and limitations listed below, students may transfer credit to WISR from nationally and regionally accredited institutions, and from California State licensed MFT programs approved by the Board of Behavioral Sciences Examiners.

If the student has received credit from an institution that has neither of these statuses, then WISR faculty will evaluate the student’s transcripts, course syllabi, academic work and/or other evidence regarding the quality of the student’s work at the previous institution to determine if it is comparable in quality to the work typically done in California Approved MFT Programs and/or nationally and regionally accredited institutions.* [Note under current California law, “Approved” means, “approval to operate” which means compliance with state standards as set forth in the California Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009 (California Education Code, Title 3,  Division 10, Part 59, Chapter 8)]

 

Undergraduate:

No more than 80 semester units may be transferred from other institutions toward WISR’s 120 semester units required for the BS. 

BS students may transfer no more than a total of 30 semester units based on credit for prior experience (from other institutions, but WISR does not itself award credit for prior experience), and credit by testing by the nationally recognized CLEP exam, combined.  All undergraduate units earned by a student from any nationally or regionally accredited college or university are routinely accepted for credit by WISR, so long as the course content is applicable to WISR’s BS program. Undergraduate units from foreign institutions or from unaccredited institutions and those not approved by the State of California are accepted by WISR if they can be translated into U.S. equivalents and if we can verify that the quality of work expected of students at WISR.*

Foreign students must have their transcripts evaluated by an agency that is a member of one of the following two associations:

Graduate:

For WISR’s MFT program, students who have completed academic work which clearly meets State guidelines and WISR’s descriptions of the core courses required for WISR’s MFT MS in Psychology option may then receive up to 12 semester units of transfer credit.

For WISR’s MFT program, students who have completed academic work which clearly meets State guidelines and WISR’s descriptions of the core courses required for WISR’s MFT MS in Psychology option may then receive up to 12 semester units of transfer credit. Courses transferred for students entering the MFT program are evaluated by WISR’s President or Chief Academic Officer, sometimes in consultation with licensed MFT’s on WISR’s faculty, to make certain that the course titles/descriptions closely parallel State guidelines, as well as WISR’s descriptions for core MFT courses.

In other graduate programs at WISR, each student’s prior graduate study is taken into careful account, in planning out her or his program of study, in order to build on the student’s strengths and avoid duplication of efforts. Some graduate course work is accepted for transfer in such cases. Credit is accepted for transfer only if it is determined, after examining the student’s transcript(s) and/or samples of the student’s academic work, that the work to be accepted for transfer credit is 1) relevant to the degree program into which they are transferring and comparable in substance and quality to work expected at WISR Some graduate course work is accepted for transfer in such cases. At the request of the prospective student, the President and/or the Chief Academic Officer, often in consultation with a subcommittee of WISR’s faculty, evaluates the student request for transfer of credit, based on the student’s transcript and other relevant evidence, such as course syllabi and/or samples of the student’s academic work.

No more than 9 units of doctoral level credit may be transferred toward Doctoral studies at WISR, and no more than 6 semester units may be transferred toward the MS in Education and Community Leadership.

*Academic credit earned from unaccredited institutions, including California licensed institutions, and foreign institutions, will be evaluated on a case by case basis, to determine if the quality of student work is comparable to that of students in many accredited institutions. Specifically, the student may submit evidence of the quality of their previous academic study (e.g., course syllabi, copies of papers or recommendations from academicians who hold accredited doctoral degrees, or evidence of the consistency and quality of the work done by students from the particular unaccredited institution).  Such applicants may also submit professional or scholarly papers or projects that they have produced–which suggest that their previous study was at the level expected of accredited programs. The Chief Academic Officer or WISR’s President will evaluate this evidence, in consultation with a subcommittee of WISR’s faculty, or in some cases, by consulting with an admissions officer or knowledgeable academic official at an accredited institution of higher learning.
