A Guideline for Transferring PLTW Courses:
- Any PLTW course can count as an engineering elective, general elective, or technical elective.
- The number of transferred credits for each course depends on its content and length of its delivery (e.g. contact hours).
- Only a passing grade of C or higher will be considered for transfer.
- If transferrable course was worth 1 credit in high school, student would receive 2 transfer credits.
