General Information for Transferring Credits

General Information for Transferring Credits

Your transcript will be evaluated during the term in which you are completing your program.

In order to help you plan your schedule, meet with your academic advisor to do an unofficial evaluation of your transcripts. You can also use the Transfer Tool to see how your prior college classes transfer to Lane. Not all courses are listed in the Transfer Tool. Many courses not listed will still transfer to Lane.

You must earn at least 24 credits at Lane in order to earn a degree.

Until your prior course work has been evaluated and you can see the course(s) in myGradPlan, you must go to the appropriate department to have prerequisite registration holds cleared.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I submit my official transcripts?
Lane accepts official transcripts from US institutions that are regionally accredited. All documents submitted to Lane become the property of Lane and are subject to federal law, The Family Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA). Learn about submitting transcripts.

Why isn't all of my prior coursework transferring?
Lane evaluates lower-division collegiate coursework only. Upper-division coursework (usually 300-400 level) will be evaluated on an individual basis. Career Technical coursework will be considred for evaluation if applicable to the student's declared program of study. Lane does not accept transfer coursework with grades of F, NP, or Unsatisfactory.

Why are some of my transfer courses listed as 1XX or 2XX?
Whenever possible Lane assigns a direct equivalency for transfer coursework. When there is not a direct equivalency available, Lane assigns the course a 1XX or 2XX within the appropriate subject area. In many cases these courses will satisfy program requirements.

Will my transfer GPA be included on my transcript?
Transfer GPA is neither calculated by Lane nor included in the overall GPA on Lane transcripts.

U.S. Transfer Credits

  • Coursework must be completed at a regionally-accredited institution.

International Transfer Credits

Coursework listed on non–US transcripts may only be considered when accompanied by an evaluation from an approved service. Students may select an agency of their choice from the NACES site. A course-by-course evaluation from the evaluation service is required.

Non-Traditional Transfer Credits

Credit by Assessment (CBA) and Credit by Exam (CBE) provide options for students to earn credits when a prior institution is not regionally accredited. A maximum of 25 percent of the program requirements can be satisfied by CBA/CBE credits. Find out more about Credit by Assessment.
