Whitworth Home Page > Adult Degree Program >
If you attend Whitworth in the Evening, you're an adult student who
brings a great deal of experience and prior learning into the classroom. We build
our classes so that you can learn together with and from other adults
just like you. In addition, you get to glean from the expertise and practical
knowledge that each instructor brings into the classroom. It's the best
of both worlds: higher education and professional expertise.
For all majors, students are required to meet all Whitworth University graduation
requirements, including general education requirements; 36 semester credits
of upper division (300-400) coursework; a 2.0 average in all Whitworth
courses and all courses in the declared major; and a total of 126 semester

How Credits Transfer
- Transfer of Washington state community college A.A. degree:
A student transferring to Whitworth with an associate of arts (A.A.) degree from a community college in Washington (approved by the Intercollege Relations Commission for the State of Washington), Colorado, Oregon, Montana, the Community College of Southern Idaho, North Idaho College, or with an associate of science (A.S.) degree from a community college in Washington, will receive the following:
- junior standing (60 semester credits);
- transfer credit of a maximum of 96 quarter credits or 64 semester credits;
- waiver of all general requirements with the following exceptions, Core 300, Reason and Knowing, Biblical Literature, and Modern Language (can be met with Whitworth 3-credit language course offered in the evening; or, 8-semester or 15-quarter credits of transfer)
- Transfer of Washington state community college A.A.S. degree. See Bachelor of Liberal Studies "Upside-Down" Degree.
- Whitworth will accept applicable undergraduate and graduate work transferred from regionally accredited institutions. For institutions without regional accreditation, transfer of credit will be considered if the credibility of the institution can be supported by the "three-letter rule," which states that it is the responsibility of the student to provide letters from three regionally accredited institutions certifying that they will accept credit from the institution from which the student is seeking credit. A total of two-thirds credit will be awarded to non-regionally accredited Bible schools that hold an ABHE accreditation.
