Transfer of credit

Assessing what credits will transfer is one of the real concerns of most transfer students. You’ve made the investment in previous coursework, and LaGrange College respects the work that you’ve already completed.

How transfer credit is assessed: The LaGrange Registrar’s Office will review and evaluate your records to determine which credits will transfer. Your college transcripts serve as the registrar’s primary source for a listing of both the courses you have taken and those currently in progress.
