Transfer Credit

Coursework attempted at other institutions must be evaluated by the Registrar. Current students are required to obtain approval before attempting coursework at another school. Transfer students’ transcripts will be evaluated prior to enrollment.

Undergraduate and graduate transfer credit policies can be found in the College Catalog.


Current Students

Students seeking to take courses at other institutions must obtain prior approval from their advisor and the registrar. To do so, students must complete an Off-Campus Course Approval Form available in the Registrar’s Office. A description should be included with all requests, except for courses to be taken at Harrisburg Area Community College (students should consult the HACC-LVC Equivalency Sheet, below to determine how courses will transfer). Upon completion of the course, students must request that a sealed, official transcript be sent by the institution directly to the Registrar’s Office at LVC.


Transfer Students

Students applying to LVC full-time having previously taken courses at other institutions must request that official transcripts be sent to the Office of Admission. The transcripts will then be evaluated by the registrar, and prospective students will be notified of the results by the Office of Admission. Unofficial transcripts may be considered on an individual basis for a preliminary transfer evaluation upon request. A total of 60 credits will be accepted for an associate degree. A maximum of 90 credit hours may be transferred toward a baccalaureate degree. A minimum of the last 30 credits must be taken at LVC.
