We encourage students to use TES to verify that their courses count towards the general education credits or the ITAM degree. Additional major course equivalencies vary by institution.

Students should work with a CWU ITAM advisor to discuss possible equivalent courses that they can take prior to coming to CWU. Please email

The Transfer Equivalency Site (TES) provides CWU equivalencies for courses offered at other colleges and universities.
