Do I need to apply to LCC to be a guest student?

How can I waive my placement tests?

You can submit a Waiver Request Form to waive your reading, writing, and math placement tests. You can find more information on the Waiver Team webpage.

What is the difference between transfer credits and a waiver?

A transfer credit is when a credit transfers in and becomes a part of the student's educational record at LCC. It takes six to eight weeks for transfer credit evaluations to be completed. Transferred-in credits can be used towards an LCC degree or certificate. In order to start the process of transferring, the student must provide the school they previously attended.

Am I required to go to Orientation?

You are not required to go to orientation. If there is an orientation hold on your student account, you will need to contact the StarZone to request an orientation override.

How do I know if a class will transfer?

The Michigan Transfer Network is a tool that LCC Advisors use to see if certain classes will transfer or not; however, the transferring school will ultimately have the answer. You can also view the LCC transfer agreements.
