Transfer Application Steps

Transfer students are traditional age students (24 years or younger) who have completed or are in the process of completing 12 or more college credits after graduating from high school.

To transfer to LC, you must be in good academic and social standing at the school you are transferring from, and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher for all college courses.

Competitive applicants typically have successfully completed college level coursework in mathematics (at or above the Algebra II level), English composition, history for western/world civilizations, and any additional general education subject areas. The admissions committee may consider both your high school and college record when reviewing your application.

Step 1: Apply

Apply online or download the paper application (PDF).

Application Deadlines

Fall semester: July 31

Applications submitted after these deadlines will be considered depending upon space availability.

Step 2: Submit Your Application Materials

Send the application materials with your application, or separately via mail.

The following are required in order to complete your application:
