Credit Transfer

AWC students have transferred into major research universities and many private and public colleges; however, AWC, nor any other college, can guarantee that its credits will be received by other institutions. Institutions which are accredited by ABHE generally accept credits from other ABHE schools, AWC being one. Colleges outside the ABHE association (including public Ohio colleges and universities and other regionally accredited colleges and universities) have their own policies regarding the acceptance of ABHE accredited colleges and may not accept AWC credit. Feel free to inquire with the Registrar’s Office for more detailed transfer of credit information.


Allegheny Wesleyan College functions under the auspices of the Allegheny Wesleyan Methodist Connection (Original Allegheny Conference) and is governed by a board of directors.
