Transfer Equivalencies for CSE 142/143

If you are considering transferring to the UW, your computing courses may transfer as generic university credit (called "UW 1XX" credit), as generic computer science credit (called "CSE 1XX" credit), or as CSE 142 or 143. Transfer credit as CSE 142 or 143 is generally only possible if your college has requested and received transfer equivalency.

Please note that transfer equivalence does not imply that the course you took is identical in all respects to any course as offered at the UW.

This page only lists current equivalencies for CSE 142 and 143. Please see the UW Admissions Equivalency Guide if your transfer credit was earned prior to Spring 2007, and for transfer credit in other subjects.
