Application Deadlines

We are so glad you have decided to join the Buff community! Students from colleges and universities across the country have experienced a smooth transition while transferring to WT. It is our desire that you share that experience.

Who is a Transfer?

Transfer students have earned 12 or more transferable college-level credit at a regionally accredited institution the fall semester or later after high school graduation.  College credits earned prior to high school graduation (dual-credit) and courses taken immediately following high school graduation during the summer do not count towards the 12 needed to classify a student as a transfer student.
