Academic Policy Details
Transfer of General Education
All William Woods University undergraduate students complete a Common Studies program. Upon completion of Common Studies courses, students are expected to possess the knowledge and skills to meet the university's general education objectives and the statewide general education goals.
The statewide general education guidelines consist of a 42 semester-hour block set up to ensure an ease of transferability of general education credit among signatory institutions within the state. Students who have completed the 42 semester-hour block may request to have a notation printed on their transcript.
Meeting Common Studies requirements with completed Associate of Arts degrees. Students may transfer in an Associate of Arts degree during their enrollment at William Woods to meet and complete Common Studies requirements. The residency rule would remain in effect, so each student's last 30 credits would still need to be William Woods courses.
These policies apply to the Semester Program/On Campus students only. Graduate College Students will need to consult the Graduate College Bulletin.
