Transfer to LCCC

Students transferring to LCCC from another college or university.


Important Documents


Transcript Evaluation Request form 



Any qualified students who have attended other colleges or universities are welcome to attend. An official evaluation of transfer credit will not be completed until the student has accomplished the following: 

  1. Request all official transcripts from the appropriate official of each separate institution of higher education attended. This includes: 
    • In-state college transcripts. 
    • Out-of-state college transcripts. 
    • International transcripts. 
    • Military transcripts (DD-214, AARTS, NOBE, ACE). 
    • CLEP transcripts. 
    • Non-traditional college credit. 
  2. Complete all LCCC admission procedures prior to requesting evaluation of college-level and/or military transcripts.
  3. Complete and return the Transcript Evaluation Request form to the LCCC Transfer Center. Each Transcript Evaluation Request is valid for three months from the date of receipt. If transcripts are not received within the three-month time limit, future registration may be restricted until all documents are received.

A student enrolling prior to the receipt of all official post-secondary transcript(s) is limited to six semester hours and subsequent enrollment will require receipt and evaluation of official transcripts from all previously attended colleges/universities. The Enrollment, Financial and Career Services division awards the transferability of credit. Students will receive a Notification of Credit Accepted letter from the Records office when the evaluation is completed. The evaluation becomes part of the student’s permanent student achievement file.

Only credits and hours are transferable; transfer grade point averages/ grades do not replace LCCC grades on the official LCCC transcript. Transfer credit is granted for college-level and some technical courses earned at regionally accredited institutions of higher education on a course-by-course basis. Credit received on a satisfactory/ unsatisfactory or credit/no, credit basis will be evaluated using the same process as graded courses. LCCC translates satisfactory or credit as the equivalent of the student having passed the class.

A transfer student who is under academic probation at another college or university may be admitted as a probationary student. A student’s record is subject to review by the Committee on Admissions and Scholastic Standing.

More and more students are discovering the transfer path to LCCC. The College accepts students from other institutions. In addition, it is possible to transfer from LCCC to any University Partnership institution or other four-year colleges or universities.
