Will My Credits Transfer?

Transferring doesn’t have to be complicated. We’ll accept up to 90 credits toward your LVC bachelor’s degree. If you earned an associate’s degree prior to enrolling at LVC, we guarantee that we will accept at least 60 credits.

Wondering which of your credits will transfer?

Estimate your credits using the Transfer Evaluation System (TES)*

Or, we are happy to provide you with a preliminary transfer credit evaluation.
