Credit Options for Advanced Standing

Credit options are opportunities for adult learners to earn credit toward a degree through alternatives other than coursework.  Credit options include transfer credit, CLEP examinations, credit by examination, advanced credit, DANTES and experiential learning. 

LRCC encourages students to apply the wealth of knowledge and experience they possess to take advantage of all the credit options available to them.  It is possible for students to earn significant credit based on previous educational and professional experiences.  The only restriction is students seeking a degree or certificate at the College must complete residency requirements.  (See residence credit for specific requirements.) 

Please note, credit earned through any of these options counts toward degree or certificate requirements but is not included in computing grade point averages.  Upon matriculation, student request for recognition of technical courses more than seven years old is subject to review.  Course content may be outdated and therefore not acceptable for transfer or other credit. Courses three years older or longer in Computer Information Systems will need to be re-taken.
