Please refer to the Equivalency Guide Manual for important information regarding abbreviations and definitions of terms.

Some Washington community college course prefixes end with an ampersand (“&”) symbol and some do not. To avoid confusion between courses, pay careful attention to ampersand designations. Some courses that look similar (e.g., ENGL& 101 and ENGL 101) are actually different courses and may have very different UW equivalencies.

KEY TO SYMBOLS:

* The asterisk indicates foreign-language courses or programs. See Foreign Language Graduation Requirement for more information.
§  This symbol indicates courses or programs that are no longer offered.
(LC) Limited credit within specified disciplines. For details, click on (LC) link within individual equivalency entries.
