Transfer Credit

Traditional Academic Programs

Acceptance of Transfer Credit

Credit from collegiate institutions which are accredited by one of the regional accrediting associations will be considered for acceptance at Lincoln College according to the academic policies regarding transfer credit.

Courses articulated by Lincoln College as specific Lincoln College courses for a particular student are identified by the Registrar, listed in the student’s official file, and added in the appropriate section on the student’s official graduation audit. Those courses which do not articulate as an equivalent Lincoln College course are counted as elective credits in most degrees. Degree programs have differing curriculum. Associate’s degree-seeking students must complete their final 27 credits at Lincoln College. Bachelor’s degree-seeking students generally must complete their last 30 credits at Lincoln College.

Lincoln College-Normal participates in the Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI). The IAI program is a statewide agreement between participating public, and some private, colleges and universities. It is designed to facilitate timely degree completion for students who transfer between institutions. Completion of Illinois Articulation Initiative courses at any participating institution may satisfy general education requirements. More information about the Illinois Articulation Initiative and participating institutions can be found at iTransfer.

Generally a maximum of 6 hours of vocational/technical/career coursework may be applied to the elective portion of any degree granted by Lincoln College-Normal with few exceptions.
