Transfer Policies:

  • Only courses completed at regionally accredited institutions will be evaluated. We also accept Advanced Placement (AP), College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), and International Baccalaureate credits.
  • Remedial/developmental courses (usually courses with a course number less than 100) are not accepted by Lander. Courses taken from non-accredited institutions will not be given credit. Courses taken at a technical school toward a specific trade will not be given credit (e.g. welding, carpentry).
  • All coursework is posted; however, a course must have a grade of ‘C’ or better to be considered for possible transfer credit.
  • A maximum of 64 semester hours from a regionally accredited technical or two-year college and a maximum of 93 semester hours from regionally accredited four year institutions will be accepted as credit toward graduation.
  • Lander University does not allow science courses with online laboratory components to fulfill the general education laboratory science requirements. While you will receive credit for these courses that may be used towards graduation, they will not count towards the required 8 hrs of laboratory science. If you complete the course with a traditional laboratory experience and notice the course is transferring as an Elective, you will be able to appeal for the course to count as satisfying Lander's laboratory science requirement. You will be responsible for furnishing the required documentation. For additional questions, contact Dr. David Slimmer, Dean of the College of Science & Mathematics.
  • Courses which are transferable but do not match anything specific within Lander’s catalog may transfer as electives or subject level/electives i.e. (ELEC or PSYC 1XX or HIST 2XX):

    1XX = 100 level elective
    2XX = 200 level elective
    3XX = 300 level elective
    4XX = 400 level elective

  • Courses which are not transferable with be notated with the Subject code of “XNCR”
  • Courses in which an articulation has not been decided with be notated with the Subject code of “UNCR”. As undetermined courses (UNCR’s) are evaluated and the credit is posted, you should receive an email stating that changes have been made to your transcript.
  • After a transcript arrives, it may take 4-6 weeks for it to be processed and evaluated. This makes it extremely important to get transcripts sent to us in a timely manner.
  • If your courses did not transfer to Lander as you expected, you may petition for the course to count differently. Come by the Registrar’s Office and get a Course Substitution Appeal form, complete it, get all the signatures, and return it back to the Office of the Registrar.
