If you are a Graduate student, please go to Graduate Transfer of Credit policies.
In general, credits are accepted from institutions that are accredited by the appropriate regional accreditation agency provided such credits carry a grade of “C” or better and are comparable to courses offered at Longwood University (see exceptions listed in Specific Policies). Transfer of credit does not necessarily imply applicability to specific degree requirements.
Transfer Articulation Agreement With The Virginia Community College System (VCCS), Richard Bland College (RBC), The Maryland Community College System (MCCS) and Other Approved Out-of-State Associate Degree Programs.
A student who:
High school students who have earned an associate degree concurrent with high school graduation are not eligible for guaranteed admission under the terms of this agreement. Such students are considered freshman applicants with transfer credit. If admitted, no distinction will be made by Longwood University regarding college courses applicable to the transfer-oriented associates degree that is completed through dual enrollment. Those students completing transfer associate degrees, upon receipt of official transcript demonstrating completion of the GAA requirements, will be awarded a waiver for lower-level Longwood University Civitae Core courses, with the exception of enrolling in ENGL 265, The Writing and Rhetoric of Citizenship.
In addition, the following will be required of these students to support their transition to Longwood University.
Longwood cannot guarantee that students will be able to complete all requirements for graduation within the 120-credit minimum required for graduation. Upon enrollment, Longwood will work with the students under this agreement on a plan detailing the remaining coursework required in the program in which the student is matriculating. Likelihood of completion within the 120-credit minimum increases if students stay within their declared major, have met specific pre-requisites at the VCCS institution for their majors, make satisfactory progress, or enter Longwood after graduating from a program-specific agreement.
Acceptance in some degree programs at Longwood University is competitive; thus guaranteed admission into Longwood University does not imply admission to these programs without further acceptance by the program or department offering the program. Students under this agreement must meet specific GPA and prerequisites for admission into particular programs including Education, Business, and Nursing.
Longwood accepts credit for CLEP, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Cambridge, military training/experience, or other forms of advanced standing according to stated policies in the Longwood catalog appropriate to students under this agreement.
All other associate degrees will be examined individually for applicability of transfer credit.
The cumulative grade point average of each student will be calculated only on work taken at Longwood. Transfer credit accepted from other institutions will be used to reduce the number of credits required for graduation, but it will not enter into the calculation of the grade point average.
Any currently enrolled undergraduate who wishes to take work at another institution to transfer to Longwood must secure permission from his/her Dean prior to enrolling in such courses. Prior approval provides the student the opportunity to have the course reviewed to determine:
Upon completion of work, official transcripts must be sent from the host institution to the Office of the Registrar.
