  • Grades for transferred courses will be interpreted according to the LDCC grading scale and will be recorded as follows:
    • Plus (+) or minus (-) symbols will be disregarded.
    • Grades of Pass, Credit and Satisfactory will be treated alike and count in hours attempted and earned only.
    • Failing grades including WF will count as hours attempted, quality hours, quality points and will impact GPA
    • A grade of “N” will count in attempted hours only.
    • Incomplete (“I”) grades will be calculated as “F”.

  • Only those courses in which the grade of “C” or higher has been earned will be used to fulfill degree requirements.
  • Students are not required to provide transcripts from previously attended institutions. If a student wants to use previously earned coursework towards placement or degree completion, they must request an official transcript to be sent to LDCC.
  • Transcripts for degree-seeking students will be evaluated and articulated by the Registrar’s Office.
  • A grade of “C” or better is required to meet pre-requisite or program requirements.

  • Transfer credits from non-regionally accredited institutions are not generally accepted at LDCC. A request for a review of this type of credit may be made to the Registrar.

Lifespan of Coursework

LDCC is interested in moving its students toward the successful completion of their associate degree or certificate regardless of when or where they began their college program, or what courses they have taken to support their degree progress. Previous college course work will be transferred to LDCC for purposes of establishing grade point average and credential completion.
