Transfer students can expect an evaluation of their coursework within a few weeks of admission. The evaluation will show the total number of credits awarded, how those credits apply to the student’s chosen degree program and the total number remaining to complete the degree.
LTU will accept a maximum of 60 credits from regionally accredited two-year institutions and 90 from regionally accredited four-year institutions.
How are courses evaluated for transfer? LTU’s Admissions Team will review each course in your college and/or university transcripts for which you have earned a grade equivalent to a C or better, evaluating the coursework to see how it applies to your chosen major. Courses that are listed on the transcript as in progress will be reviewed once an updated transcript is available.
What about Military experience?
Students wishing to use their military experience for transfer credit must submit an official Joint Services Transcript (JST) or an official transcript from Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) for review. Only work in the Military Course Competitions category will be reviewed. Courses in the Military Experience category tend to be specialized and do not have college credit recommendations by the American Council on Education (ACE).
The Michigan Transfer Agreement
Lawrence Tech does not have a general education block as described in the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA), but supports the principles of the agreement and will evaluate the individual courses in the block for their role in meeting the requirement for a transfer students chosen degree.
