information for transfer students
Students who are transferring to LHU can expect that many of their general education courses will transfer. Introductory courses in art, music, theatre, speech, composition, American government/economics, world history, literature, philosophy, psychology, wellness and sociology/anthropology may transfer in as required general education courses.
A mathematics course may transfer if it is comparable to Lock Haven University’s MATH 101 or higher. Science courses that include a lab may transfer in as a lab science requirement. Courses that have been taken within a discipline area may need to be evaluated by the chairperson of that department.
The PASSHE Passport
If you are ready to transfer to LHU from a PA State System university (PASSHE) or a Pennsylvania Community College, the Academic Passport ensures that a maximum number of your credits will transfer, if you meet one of the two following requirements:
- You have earned an Associate of Arts or Science degree from one of the participating community colleges
- You have earned at least 12 transferable credits from another PA State System school
To be eligible for an Academic Passport, you must have a grade point average of at least 2.0. If you are a community college student with an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree, you must have earned at least 30 credits in liberal arts courses. Remedial, developmental, or study skills courses do not transfer under the Academic Passport.
Unofficial Evaluations and Individual Appointments
Interested students can schedule an appointment with the Transfer Coordinator to discuss
An unofficial credit evaluation can be done online or in person before applying to see how many of your credits may transfer to Lock Haven University. Individual appointments may be scheduled Monday-Friday between 8-4 p.m. by emailing email@example.com or by calling 570-484-2027.
