Transfer Process

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE TRANSFER AGREEMENT FOR THE SCHOOL YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING. EACH SCHOOL HAS A DIFFERENT SET OF REQUIREMENTS FOR TRANSFER AND GUARANTEED ADMISSION ACCEPTANCE.
 

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE TRANSFER PROCESS:

Transfer College Credit to Four-Year Institutions:

  • Four-year institutions are readily accepting community college credits.
  • Students/parents are encouraged to contact the Admissions and Records Office at the four-year institution the student is interested in attending to verify policies and requirements.  Contacts for most four-year schools may be found in LFCC’s Transfer Guide.
  • Students are strongly encouraged to maintain a portfolio.  Please reference the Documents/Coursework (page for instructions on how to complete your portfolio. 

Articulation Agreements with Four-Year Institutions for students who are graduated:

  • Lord Fairfax Community College has a number of agreements with four-year colleges and universities that provide significant benefits to LFCC students. These “Transfer Agreements” provide clear pathways to help achieve goals of earning a bachelor’s degree. Students are strongly encouraged to maintain a portfolio containing course syllabi and examples of completed work for each course.
  • These agreements pave the way for a smooth transition from LFCC to a four-year college or university. They also help maximize the number of transfer credits from LFCC to four-year institutions, in some cases resulting in acceptance at the junior level at the four-year institution. A number of agreements also offer guaranteed acceptance as long as the students achieve the required grade point average (GPA) during studies at LFCC.
