The University of Washington Bothell reserves the right to deny credit for courses that are not compatible with those offered in its baccalaureate degree programs. Some general categories of courses never receive transfer credit-or, in some instances, receive credit on a restricted basis only (see items marked with an asterisk in the list that follows).
Examples of courses that receive no credit include:
- Courses considered below college level (usually numbered below 100).
- Repeated courses or courses with duplicate subject content.
- Course work earned at an institution that did not hold at least candidacy status with its regional accrediting association when the course work was taken.
- Courses that provide instruction in a particular religious doctrine.
- Mathematics courses considered below college level, including basic math, and beginning and intermediate algebra.
- Courses offered for non-credit continuing education units.
- Remedial English (e.g., reading, vocabulary development, grammar, speed reading, or any courses that are preparatory to an institution's first Freshman Composition course).
- Courses providing instruction in English as a Second Language (100-level or above) or English courses taken at an institution where English is not the primary language of instruction.
- Remedial courses in any academic discipline (100-level and above).*
- Non-academic/vocational-technical courses.*
- Examinations offered by the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP).
* Up to 15 vocational_technical credits may be awarded for courses numbered 100 and above.
