WSU COMMON REQUIREMENTS (UCORE)

A prior bachelor’s degree or approved transferable associate’s degree (DTA) automatically fulfill the UCORE, except for the Integrative Capstone [CAPS] to be completed at the College of Nursing (pending approval). Nursing prerequisites still have to be met on a course-for-course basis.  Contact an advisor with any questions.
