Transfer Statement

The associate of arts and sciences (AA&S) and associate of science (AS) degrees are designed to provide freshman and sophomore level course work toward the completion of a bachelor’s degree. These programs require students to take essentially the same courses as required by their four-year college or university counterparts.

To help facilitate the transfer process, LFCC has created an online Transfer Guide that provides detailed information such as tuition, GPA, application requirements, course equivalents, and other information that may be useful in the transfer process.

The Virginia Community College System also offers a Transfer Planning Tool through the Virginia Education Wizard.  

LFCC offers many services and programs to assist transfer students. Students are encouraged to seek the assistance of an advisor to gain additional information to plan a successful transfer experience.
