Transferring to Lakeland (Graduate)

A student who wishes to transfer to Lakeland from another graduate program must be in good academic standing and must submit official academic transcripts from all other colleges and universities attended. Upon the approval of the directors of the respective graduate programs, up to nine (9) graduate semester hours of coursework in which grades of “B” or better have been earned and are relevant to the program may be accepted in transfer from accredited institutions of higher education. Transfer courses must have been taken within ten (10) years prior to application to the graduate program.

Grades earned at other colleges and universities are not included in the Lakeland University GPA. All work completed at other colleges and universities will be converted to semester hours when evaluating transferable credits. Upon acceptance to Lakeland, transfer applicants will receive an evaluation of their transferable credits with a listing of the courses required to complete a Lakeland University degree.

Lakeland University does not award academic credit for life experience or other informal learning experiences.

A prospective student who has already earned a comparable graduate degree is not eligible for admission to Lakeland University’s equivalent graduate program.
