Transfer to the University Partnership

The University Partnership at Lorain County Community College was created to bring bachelor’s and master’s degrees to Lorain County. The combination of LCCC coursework and University Partnership coursework are the best value in higher education. Many of these degrees can be completed with three years of coursework from LCCC (at LCCC rates) and only one year at university rates. All university partners have their own procedures for transferring. Contact the University Partnership office to connect with the appropriate partner advisor or visit

LCCC Students and Students from other Colleges and Universities Transferring to the University Partnership

All university partners have their own procedures for transferring. It is advisable to schedule a meeting with a UP advisor. Contact the University Partnership office to be directed to the appropriate advisor or visit for further information.

LCCC Students Transferring to Another College or University

Credit earned at LCCC is transferable to the four-year institution of the student’s choice so long as the student has met the requirements of the receiving institution. The State of Ohio guarantees that equivalent courses transfer and will apply toward degree objectives in the same manner they would if the course had been taken at the receiving institution.

Review the State of Ohio transfer module (in this publication) with an academic advisor to maximize the benefit of this block transfer of credit mechanism.

Individualized Transfer Plans

If academic goals are not reflected in the College’s University Partnership programs or transfer agreements, meet with an advisor to develop an Individualized Transfer Plan (ITP). An ITP is tailored to individual needs, curriculum and academic background and to the college or university the student is planning on transferring to after attendance at LCCC.
