3. Once all transcripts have been received, credits will be evaluated and, in a week or two, (depending on the number of transcripts ahead of yours) a notice will be sent to your LCCC student email address as to which courses, if any, have transferred to LCCC.  Please note that if you have not completed any math or English courses at your previous school, you will also need to schedule placement testing.  You may also need biology, chemistry, or keyboarding placement testing depending upon your major.  Please contact your advisor or an admissions representative.  Click here to see if your college is listed in the Pennsylvania Transfer and Articulation Center's list of equivalencies.

4. If there are courses you need that have pre-requisites and your transcript has not yet been evaluated, you MUST bring in an unofficial copy of your transcript to your first advising appointment for verification that all pre-requisites have been met. With verification, an advisor can sign the registration card for a class, pending receipt of official transcript.
