I just lately launched into the journey of amassing the preliminary credit I need to switch in earlier than I formally starting my WGU Pc Science diploma. By now you in all probability find out about WGU’s beneficiant switch credit score system and the way nicely it really works for individuals attempting to speed-run their diploma – however what does the method really seem like?

The brief reply: Transfers are carried out by a service referred to as Parchment, all you need to do is choose WGU because the recipient and your credit shall be transferred over electronically. It’s fairly low-cost too!

Let’s check out the method and what I’ve realized to this point.

My Credit​

I had the objective of finishing as many credit as I may in a single month ($99 price) after which transferring them into WGU for my compsci diploma. It took lower than a month to get 27 full credit accomplished at Sophia.org. Granted, these credit have been “gen-ed” and on the simpler facet, however the actuality is that Sophia gives a extremely nice method to get a head begin in your diploma.

Which Programs Switch?​

I can solely converse to the Pc Science program, however I’m assured each program at WGU has an identical webpage like this one the place all Sophia transfers are listed.

Some Notes:

  • The transferrable programs from Sophia within the hyperlink above generally have an asterisk (*) beside them, these are thought of the really useful transfers for the WGU course.
  • Please be sure you’re checking the transfers in your enrolment yr, there are generally discrepancies as transferrable programs are topic to alter.

Tips on how to Switch​

As soon as your credit are accomplished (please wait in your assignments to be graded and the course to be marked as full), you’ll be able to head over to Parchment and there you’ll have the ability to enroll and order a transcript from Sophia. That is an automatic course of and it solely took a couple of days for me to obtain a brand new analysis from WGU itself.

Listed below are a few ideas that I’ve for you:

  • Solely provoke a switch after you have your credit carried out, there isn’t any sense to pay the Parchment price greater than as soon as until you’re eager to switch in credit earlier than a possible curriculum change.
  • If effectivity is vital to you, solely take one course with Touchstones (written assignments) at a time. Touchstones take a few days to get graded, and you’ll’t have greater than 2 programs actively enrolled directly, so it’s prudent to take a course than solely has Milestones (exams/exams) whilst you await assignments to be graded.

Wrapping Up​

Rushing up your WGU Pc Science diploma by utilizing Sophiais a sensible transfer – it’s a shortcut to saving money and time. Utilizing Parchment makes the method simpler, nevertheless it’s good to know what you’re doing. Be sure you know which Sophia programs will depend at WGU and wait in your grades earlier than transferring. With the correct decisions and a few planning, you may get to your diploma sooner. Consider it as a faster path to your massive WGU objective!
