Transfer of Credit from Other Institutions
Lansdale School of Business considers credits for transfer from accredited business schools, colleges, and universities. Credits are considered for transfer provided the courses are similar in objectives and content to those offered at LSB and the letter grade (or equivalent) of the course is “C” or better. Transcripts submitted to meet entrance requirements by transfer students are evaluated by the Executive Director. The transcript will be evaluated officially only after the applicant has been formally admitted to the school. Transfer credits awarded are not calculated in the student’s GPA. Transfer credits affect a students maximum program length – see page 18.
Earned academic credits from accredited schools that did not result in a terminal degree cannot be over ten years old to qualify for transfer. However, any credits over ten years old that were used to complete a degree and are deemed appropriate by the Executive Director may be considered.
Transfer credits may not be earned while in attendance at LSB, except when special circumstances would warrant a waiver of this policy by the Executive Director. An example of when a waiver might be granted would be for a student who was near completion of his/her program of study and the student moved from the area, or entered the armed forces. The student would have to be in good academic standing and close to completing their program of study at Lansdale School of Business.
Transfer of Credit to Other Institutions
Information concerning other schools which may accept LSB credits toward their programs can be obtained by contacting the Student Services Office. However, Lansdale School of Business does not guarantee transferability of credits to any other college, university, or institution. Any decision on the comparability, appropriateness, and applicability of credits and whether they should be accepted is the decision of the receiving institution. It should not be assumed that any courses or programs described in this catalog can be transferred to another institution.
