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 AA, AS, or AAS 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.

SPU’s Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and General Engineering degrees are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. As a new program, the Mechanical Engineering program is not ABET accredited yet, but the ME program is seeking ABET accreditation in the 2019–20 review cycle.
