Courses may transfer to Lane even if there is not an identical course offered at Lane. Not all transfer course work is eligible to meet defined degree or certificate requirements.
US Transfer Credits

- Grades of Dor better required for transfer.
- Pass/NoPass Grades are only transferrable when the issuing institution defines the grade as C (including C-) or better.
- Coursework at 300 levels or above is reviewed on a case by case basis and may require instructional department's review.
- The college or university must have been accredited or be a candidate for accreditation when the course work was taken.
International Transfer Credits

Frequently Asked Questions
Not all of my transfer coursework is listed. Why?
If you completed upper-division coursework at a 4-year institution (usually 300-400 level classes), those courses were not transferred in. LCC does not offer degrees or certificates above the 2-year Associate level so upper-division coursework is not applied to LCC programs.
We are evaluating Lower Division Collegiate coursework only. Career Technical Education coursework will be evaluated if it can be applied toward the degree or certificate. LCC does not transfer in coursework from other institutions where grades of F, or NP/U (No Pass/Unsatisfactory) were earned.
Why are some of my transfer courses listed as 1XX or 2XX?
Whenever possible LCC assigns a direct equivalency for transfer coursework. When there is not a near-equivalent course at LCC, the course is assigned a 1XX or 2XX within the appropriate subject area. In many cases these courses will still satisfy specific LCC degree requirements.
Why do the grades for my transfer coursework have a 'T' in front of them?
This simply means that the course was transferred in to LCC. For example, a grade of 'B' earned at another institution will appear as 'TB' on your unofficial LCC transcript. These grades will not appear on your official transcript, rather a summary of your total credits transferred will be listed on your LCC transcript.
Will my transfer GPA be included on my transcript?
Transfer GPA is neither calculated by LCC nor included in the overall GPA on LCC transcripts.
Where do I look to determine how courses from other schools will transfer to Lane?
Use the Course Equivalency Transfer Tool in order to see how their prior college classes transfer to Lane. Not all courses are listed.
