Frequently Asked Questions
When should I request an evaluation of my credits?
Prospective partnership students are encouraged to have their credits evaluated near the completion of their associate’s degree. Youngstown State University is aware of the budget-conscious student and will work with them to complete as many credits as possible at Lorain prior to transfer to YSU. Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with a YSU representative to review their evaluation and gain a better understanding of the partnership.
When should I apply to YSU?
Students are always encouraged to apply EARLY. Academic advisement occurs in October and March with registration (building your schedule) following in November and April for the subsequent terms. Students applying in time to be accepted and advised in October and March will have the best selection of course options. Please keep in mind the YSU deadline to apply is typically earlier than that of Lorain County Community College.
