Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Lynchburg is implementing the following transfer credit policy for the Spring 2020 semester only:
- Students will be awarded course equivalency credit for transfer courses with a P+, P, or S, or other equivalent marks earned, if the mark signifies content mastery at the C level or higher. If the course grade cannot easily be identified, the student may petition the University of Lynchburg for review by providing a statement from the institution that proves the coursework justified a C or higher.
- The University will allow any P+, P, or S, or other equivalent marks, to meet degree requirements. Examples:
- Use of the course to satisfy prerequisites or corequisites for other courses
- Courses required for admission to a selective major
- General education requirements
- Courses in the major
Make sure you have sent your final transcript from all previous institutions and reviewed your credit evaluation to make sure you do not enroll in courses you don’t 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.
At orientation, you will get a campus tour, meet with campus offices and faculty and staff, and learn about Lynchburg’s academic policies and procedures. You’ll also meet and interact with your Link Leader, an upper-class peer mentor who also transferred to Lynchburg, as well as your new classmates.
In addition to spaces in our traditional residence halls, an on-campus house is reserved expressly for new transfer students. If you are interested in this housing opportunity, contact Terry Bodine (email@example.com) or Jonathan Fries (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information about the application process.
