Transfer Students

Have you already studied at another college or university? Welcome to SPU! We’ll work with you to apply previously earned credit to your program of study here, from Engineering to Computer Science or Information Systems.

Talk with us. We want to help you reach your goals. Contact us to plan your personal program.

Associate degree? Good idea. If you’re already a student in a Washington state community college, we encourage you to complete an approved associate degree before entering SPU. A Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) associate degree works for all programs, but an AS-T or AS-T2 is preferred for engineering majors.

See our Transfer Student Guides for more specifics about transfer options:

The suggested transfer coursework in these guides, along with associated 2-year plans, are depicted visually in our Suggested Course Sequence flow charts.

All of SPU’s engineering degrees (Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and General Engineering) are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
