Oregon colleges admissions updates from GearUp

Make the most out of College Now classes at your school!
Pursue a college certificate while you're in high school.

If you're earning college credit from Lane Community College in courses at your school through College Now, they may apply to Lane's Career Pathway Certificates, like Basic Health Care, Teacher Aide 1, Shielded Metal Arc Welding or Office Software Specialist. Such certificates can take less than a year to earn. You might be earning credits toward a certification of completion and don't even know it! Your school counselor can advise you about how you can get started before high school graduation pursuing a certificate that could give you a leg up for entry-level employment AND many of these courses are already embedded in Lane Community College's degrees and programs.

The number of credits accepted by other institutions is determined by which programs they have and how many transfer and elective credits they accept. Even if the other institutions accept the credits, the credits may not be equivalent to the courses required for your program.

It is important to check with their Admissions Office/Academic Advisor to see if any articulation agreements(link is external) exist. Be sure to also use their transfer equivalency tool to determine how credits will or will not transfer. 

Note: High School Connections is not a HS Completion program. Our advisor will help you enroll in Lane and will give you suggestions on what may count as a high school credit, but it is your responsibility to confirm with your high school on what college classes count as high school credit.

If I repeat a College Now course, will both grades be on my transcript?

If you earn a higher grade on the repeated course, you can Petition to Absolve the lower grade. The class and original grade stays on the transcript, but the grade is removed from your overall GPA. You can do this petition even if you repeat the course after high school graduation.

You will see an ‘E’ next to the lower grade which means the grade was removed from your cumulative GPA. You will see an ‘I’ next to the higher grade which means that grade is included in your cumulative GPA.

If you don’t submit the Petition to Absolve, then yes both grades will be on the transcript and calculated in your overall Lane GPA.

What's the benefit?
You will benefit by having a higher GPA for financial aid, scholarships, and employers.

*Note: This is strictly a Lane policy and other colleges/universities may not accept the removal of a lower grade. If they do not accept this policy, the lower grade will be calculated back into your overall GPA. Contact your intended college/university Registrar to find out.
