Retroactive Credits

Retroactive Credit in Dental Hygiene

Students in the Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene program may receive retroactive credit of up to 28 upper division WSU credit hours for coursework completed at another accredited dental hygiene program. These credit hours will be given in the final semester of the BSDH program.

Retroactive Credit in a Foreign Language

WSU's Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures offers options for students to earn credit for their past language learning experiences through Retrocredit.

WSU students may qualify for credit for previous world language experience. Language learning in courses prior to entering college, including high school language experience, can be validated by earning a grade of C or better in a WSU language course or courses beyond the first course in that language. The credit earned by validation of previous experience is called Retroactive Credit. Eligibility details and applications are available at LAS Advising Center, and in the MCLL office, 305 Jardine.

Retroactive Credit in Nursing

The School of Nursing at Wichita State University offers advanced placement to registered nurses seeking a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. The curriculum is designed so that the RN who has received an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) from a nationally accredited program and who meets the work experience criteria may achieve advanced standing in the basic nursing program though retroactive credit.
