General Education Requirements Transfer Agreement (GERTA)

The following are all GERTA approved general education courses for WSC. Please pay special attention to the program of study these courses may be applied to as requirements differ among programs and degrees.

The NDUS developed GERTA to assist students who transfer within the NDUS. This agreement states that students who transfer to an NDUS institution after completing their general education course work at any other NDUS institution will be deemed to have met all lower division general education requirements at the transfer school. This agreement also states that if not all general education requirements have been completed before transferring, all general education courses will be applied to the general education requirements at any other NDUS institution. Please contact the Registrar to obtain a GERTA completion certificate form.
