The Transfer Center makes transferring an easy and effective way to complete your educational goals.  It provides information for students both transferring into LCCC and those students desiring to transfer on to other colleges and universities. 

Transferring from LCCC

If your goal is to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree, LCCC is a great place to start. You can complete the first years of your education at LCCC at our lower tuition rate and then transfer your credits to another college or university to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree.

  Get started at LCCC and transfer to another college or university

 Transfer to the University Partnership

  Take courses at another college or university for credit at LCCC (outgoing transient students)

  Outgoing cross registration    (Full-time LCCC student taking additional courses that are not available at LCCC at selected participating institutions.)

Students Transferring to LCCC


The state of Ohio has established law and policies which guarantee transfer students the following:

  • All college-level courses satisfactorily completed at one Ohio public higher education institution will be accepted at all others;
  • All equivalent courses transferred will apply to a student’s degree objective in the same manner as the equivalent course at the receiving institution;
  • That a sub-set of a public higher education institution’s general education requirements, called a Transfer Module, will transfer as a block (36-40 semester hours) in lieu of the receiving institution’s Transfer Module (LCCC Transfer Module);
  • That transfer students will be treated equitably with students who started at any of the public higher education institutions;
  • That appeal procedures will be provided at the institutional level and the state level to adjudicate any problems relating to the implementation of the law and policies (see Appeal Procedure).

Lorain County Community College strongly supports all Ohio’s Articulation and Transfer State Initiatives and shares a philosophy of fostering student success. Students transferring in from quarter system schools are welcome, and LCCC will work diligently to ensure a smooth transition to fulfill its commitment of its transfer guarantee for Ohioans.

Transfer Assurance Guides

A TAG is an advising tool that can assist Ohio college and college-bound students planning specific majors to make course selections that will ensure comparable, compatible, and equivalent learning experiences across the state’s higher-education system. Additional information on specific Transfer Assurance Guides can be found on the Ohio Board of Regents Web site:

Career Technical Credit Transfer

Statewide Career Technical Credit Transfer (CT2) is similar to TAGs, but composed of career-technical courses instead of general education courses.  Additional information on the Career Transfer Assurance Guides process may be found at
