Transfer Credits

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.
