Although it is not required for admission, University of Puget Sound is pleased to accept the Washington State Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA). Students who come to Puget Sound with a DTA associate degree and a cumulative college GPA of at least 3.0 will receive guaranteed junior standing (16 units) and credit for six of our eight core curriculum requirements:
- Seminar in Scholarly Inquiry 1 (SSI-I)
- Artistic Approaches core requirement
- Humanistic Approaches core requirement
- Mathematical Approaches core requirement
- Natural Scientific Approaches core requirement
- Social Scientific Approaches core requirement
The Connections core requirement and the Seminar in Scholarly Inquiry 2 (SSI-II) must be taken at Puget Sound, although enrolled students may petition for SSI-II credit if they believe that they have taken a course which meets the SSI-II rubric. Transfer credit for the KNOW and foreign language graduation requirements is subject to review by the Office of the Registrar.
All admitted transfer students will receive an official transfer credit evaluation upon admission.
We are unable to provide credit evaluations earlier in the process, but prospective students can see how current, previous, or anticipated college courses may transfer to Puget Sound by using our transfer equivalency search tool.
Please note that while a course may be eligible for university credit, acceptance of transfer credit toward major or minor requirements is at the discretion of the academic department and may require review of course materials including assignments and syllabi.
