For August 2013
Welcome to Lynchburg College! To make your transition to life at Lynchburg as a transfer student as smooth a transition as possible, we offer programs and events specifically for you. We're also available to answer your questions any time.
Get ready for LC in six easy steps:
Step 1: Contact Your Academic Advisor
Around the middle of April, if you have submitted your reservation deposit, you will receive a letter with your transfer advisor's name and contact information. You should contact your advisor as soon as you are able in order to discuss your class schedule.
Make sure you have sent your final transcripts from all previous institutions and reviewed your transcript evaluation to make sure you do not enroll in courses you do not need to take.
Before you meet with your advisor,
- Review your transfer credit evaluation and have it with you. You should receive this from the Registrar’s office.
- Become familiar with the academic catalog and the course requirements for the major(s) in which you are interested.
- Come prepared with any questions you may have regarding your major, career interests, internships, etc.
In addition to helping you plan your schedule, your advisor can:
- Help you create a long-term plan for graduation
- Tell you about major-specific clubs, organizations, and other opportunities
- Advise you about opportunities for internships, research, or study abroad programs
- Help you explore post-graduate education and career opportunities
Step 2: Register for Classes Online
After you talk with your academic advisor, you can register for classes online at myLC beginning April 23. You will receive instructions for how to register online from the Registrar’s office. If you have any questions about online registration, please call 434.544.8218.
Please note: If a class you want is closed, speak to your advisor. Your advisor may suggest alternatives that will still help you progress in your program.
Step 3: Request Housing
If you will be living on campus, please fill out the housing preference form (log-in required) and indicate that you are a Transfer in the dropdown menu item labeled "Type." This form allows you to request which residence hall you would like to live in as well as additional information regarding your housing assignment.
If you have any questions about the housing process, please call the Office of Residence Life at 434.544.8320.
Step 4: Submit Health Form
All full-time undergraduate students are required to submit a health form. If you would like to use these services, please return the form to the Health Center in Hundley Hall.
To get more information about the Health Center or the form, visit the Health Center web pages or contact them at 434.544.8357.
Step 5: Check In
All new students must check into the College before they can attend orientation or begin classes. At check-in, you will get your student ID, parking pass, and take care of all other campus business. (If you need a parking pass, please bring your driver's license, proof of insurance, and car registration with you when you come to check-in.) If you are living on campus, this is also where you will pick up your room keys!
You may check in from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Monday, August 19 in Schewel Hall or before orientation on August 20 beginning at 9 a.m. The process usually takes about 30 minutes to complete.
Step 6: Attend Transfer SOAR
Tuesday, August 20, 2013
We look forward to meeting you at our Transfer Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR). This is an orientation program designed to help you transition to life as a transfer student at Lynchburg College.
At SOAR, you will receive your official class schedule, meet with faculty and staff, and learn about LC's academic policies and procedures. You'll also meet other new and current transfer students. We will send you more information about Transfer SOAR throughout the summer, but mark your calendar now for this very important day!
