INFORMATION FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS
Any transfer students are welcome to apply to the ISC program. It is recommended that students first pursue an Associate in Arts - DTA degree that is part of the state of Washington's transfer equivalency agreement.
For example, we’ve worked closely with Everett Community College (EvCC) to establish a DTA that includes courses that will help ensure strong preparation and a smooth transition into the Integrated Strategic Communication program.
Students with a 3.0 or higher transfer GPA (on approximately 90 quarter credits) are the most competitive applicants; however, we consider many factors and therefore recommend submitting your application for further review even if your GPA is below 3.0. Completion of the DTA at EvCC or any other institution does not guarantee admission into ISC.
The total number of transferable credits from a DTA degree varies but is generally close to 90 quarter credits (60 semester credits). Students can transfer up to 109 lower-division quarter credits (73 semester credits) to WSU, so a student may complete the DTA before or concurrent with the ISC program and transfer these credits toward the Bachelor’s degree.
Transfer students are strongly urged to meet with an advisor to discuss your options, career ideas and course planning.
