Will my credits transfer?

Yes! The SMWC team is prepared to help you build on your educational achievements, and will sit down with you to review your previous course work and life experience to help design a plan to get you finished! We have many options for those who have earned an Associate’s Degree, just taken a year’s worth of classes or just need a few classes to finish! 

We have special agreements with Ivy Tech, Ancilla College, Lake Land College and many others.

Can I get credit for life experience?

Yes! This is college-level learning you’ve done on your own – at home, work, through volunteer activities in your community—College faculty will work with you to assess your prior learning and help you create a path to completion.

Is financial aid available for transfer students?

Yes! Transfer students may qualify for academic merit as well as honors, military and legacy scholarships in addition to many state and federal grants. See Financial Aid availability.

When can I transfer?

At any time! Online students are accepted every 8 weeks into the Woods Online Program in August, October, January, March and May. Our classes are convenient and flexible to meet the needs of your busy life.
