WGU applies the tuition credit to the student's first-term tuition bill at WGU.

Students who have previously taken StraighterLine's PHY251L - General Physics II with Lab course may transfer these credits to WGU - College of Health Professions as UBC1/UBT1 - Introduction to Physics and Lab (For Health Informatics program only).
