Grade PoliciesGrades are mailed at the end of each semester unless the student has outstanding financial obligations with the College.
Class attendance, class participation, and attitude toward class work are included in the class grade, according to the standards set by each instructor at the beginning of the course in the course syllabus.
A student receiving a grade of "Incomplete" must initiate arrangements with her instructor to make up the required work within two weeks after the last day of the semester. Failure to do so will result in a failing grade for the course.
Credits earned at another accredited college or university will be evaluated and only a "C" (2.0 on a four point scale) or higher grade can be transferred. Upon evaluation, credits, comparable degrees and/or coursework will be credited to the student's progress toward her Lexington degree, if appropriate. Credit earned in developmental and remedial courses, continuing education unit (CEU) or non-accredited institutions are nontransferable. The grades and credits will be recorded on the Lexington College transcript, but will not be computed into the Lexington College GPA. Culinary arts classes will be evaluated separately.
Acceptance does not guarantee credit. Credits will be evaluated and comparable degrees and/or coursework will be credited to the student's progress toward her Lexington bachelor's degree if appropriate and if the courses were completed with a grade "C" or higher (with a numeric value of 2.0 on a four point scale) at another accredited college or university.
Students who have earned an Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS), or Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree from an accredited college or university will have junior standing, however the courses taken at an accredited college or university will be evaluated using the same criteria used for any other transferred credit.
All courses are assessed by the Office of the Registrar in consultation with the Academic Dean. The total amount of transfer credit will not exceed the necessary residency requirements.
Enrolled Lexington students wanting to attend a course for credit at another accredited college or university and requesting the transfer of credit must obtain written approval from the Registrar in consultation with the academic dean before registration. Course credit not approved in advance is not guaranteed as transferable to the Lexington College degree. Only credit hours transfer, not grades.
Requesting a Transcript
An official transcript must be requested in writing. Requests must include the student's full name (as recorded while attending Lexington College), social security number, last date of attendance, current phone number, the number of copies requested, and to whom and where it should be sent.
A student's financial obligations with the College must be met to be eligible for an official transcript.
Because of the highly confidential nature of student records, transcript requests made by phone or electronic mail are not accepted.
A $10 fee per transcript, paid by money order, credit card or cash for requests made in person is charged for this service.
