LCSC provides opportunities for post-secondary school education and training to all qualified applicants in a variety of degree and non-degree programs.  When applying for admission, applicants generally fall into one of the following admission categories: Academic Degree-Seeking, Career & Technical Education Degree-Seeking, Returning, Non-Degree-Seeking, Dual Credit, International and Institute of Intensive English. When all of an applicant’s credentials have been received, the applicant’s admission file will be reviewed based on the admission standards of one of these categories.

When applying for admission, students are required to fully complete the residency section of the application form. Based on the information provided, a residency status (either resident, Asotin County, or non-resident) is determined. Students who disagree with the residency status they have been given, can appeal via completion of the Idaho Residency Determination Worksheet form, which is available from the Office of Admission/Registrar or on-line at www.lcsc.edu/registrar and is submitted to the Registrar/Director of Admission.

Individuals age 15 or younger wishing to enroll in courses through Dual Credit or Advanced Opportunity programs must provide the signature of the high school faculty teaching the course on the registration form submitted. This signature indicates the high school faculty believes the enrolled student will be able to succeed in the course.

Individuals less than 16 years of age, who have a high school degree or General Education Diploma, wishing to enroll in courses as a degree-seeking or non-degree-seeking student must submit a letter and transcript to the Registrar/Director of Admission requesting to do so.

Transfer Student Additional Information

EVALUATION OF TRANSFER CREDITS

For complete transfer policies and processes, visit www.lcsc.edu/admissions/transfer-and-articulation/

Transfer credit evaluation is typically completed approximately 14 business days after the student is admitted.

Upon admission to Lewis-Clark State College and receipt of the applicant’s official transcripts, college level courses completed at any United States post-secondary institution accredited by an agency recognized by the State Board of Education (SBOE) will normally be accepted. Credit for courses graded with all passing letter grades including P (passing), S (satisfactory), and D- will be accepted toward the satisfaction of degree and credential requirements. (Transfer courses graded with a D- will be entered as grades of D for calculation purposes since LCSC does not have a grade of D-.) Transfer credit is not limited to those courses that precisely parallel courses offered at LCSC. Credit is usually granted for all courses which reasonably correspond to one of the various programs offered by the college. The Office of Admission/Registrar evaluates applicant transcripts to determine which courses transfer to LCSC as General Education Core only. Transfer credits, which may apply toward an intended major, will be evaluated by the student’s faculty advisor.

Students are responsible for meeting the individual requirements of their chosen major. STUDENTS SHOULD VISIT WITH THEIR ADVISOR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO BEGIN THIS EVALUATION PROCESS. Also, students may view their Transfer Equivalency Report on WarriorWeb, warriorweb.lcsc.edu. Credit is not accepted for courses evaluated as developmental. Transfer credits are not included in the computation of a student’s GPA at Lewis-Clark State College, but will be used to compute graduation honors. Please visit http://www.lcsc.edu/admissions/transfer-and-articulation/ for more transfer student information including course equivalency guides showing how courses will transfer from select accredited colleges and universities. Transcripts are legal documents, and as such, once received they become the property of the college and cannot be copied, returned or forwarded. Transfer equivalency reports are subject to change.

Non-degree seeking applicants who left in good standing who wish to return to LCSC as a non-degree-seeking student must update their permanent record by submitting a non-degree seeking application online. Non-degree seeking students who were suspended from LCSC must fill out a reinstatement after suspension form. This form is available at the Office of Admission/Registrar or www.lcsc.edu/registrar.

Non-Degree Seeking Applicants

The College welcomes the enrollment of students who, at the time of application, may not desire degree-seeking status. Such students may be authorized to enroll with non-degree-seeking status with credit limits. Transcripts, tests and application fee are not required of such students. Financial aid and veteran benefits are not available.

When applying for non-degree status, the year of high school graduation or GED completion must be indicated on the non-degree seeking application for admission. Applicants without a high school diploma or GED must receive permission from the Director of Admission/Registrar to register for credit-bearing classes. Non-degree seeking students can register for any combination of courses totaling 11 or fewer credits; however, prior to registration, pre-requisites must be met for any course that lists them as a requirement. Students who later choose to seek a degree must follow appropriate admission procedures and complete a degree-seeking application. In addition, after taking 30 cumulative credits at LCSC, students must apply and be admitted as a degree-seeking student. Post-baccalaureates and those ages 60+ are exempt from the credit limit rule. Transfer transcripts will only be evaluated for degree-seeking students.

Dual Credit Applicants

Dual Credit Programs are designed to assist high school/home school students interested in taking college level coursework or for those students seeking additional career guidance. Dual Credit Programs at LCSC include the following: Dual Credit and On-Campus Classes. For more information, call the Office of New Student Recruitment, 208-792-2378, or visit the web at www.lcsc.edu/admissions.

Retention of Admission Records

The Office of Admission/Registrar retains admission files for three years after the date of last attendance. If applied, but never enrolled, application paperwork is kept for 3 years. If re-applying beyond these retention periods, students may be asked to furnish new application materials, such as high school or college transcripts.

Admission Petitions

If the admission standards for regular, conditional, or probational admission are not met, denied applicants are encouraged to apply as non-degree-seeking students, or attend a community college first, and then enter LCSC as a transfer student. If there are unusual or extraordinary circumstances that prevented an applicant from meeting admission standards, applicants may contact the Registrar/Director of Admission Nikol Roubidoux at Reid Centennial Hall, Room 102, 208-792-2210 for special consideration.

Application Procedures for Nursing, Teacher Education, and Social Work

Applicants for acceptance to the Nursing, Teacher Education, and Social Work programs must first apply as an academic degree-seeking applicant to the Office of Admission/Registrar. In addition, they must meet further requirements for acceptance to the respective programs which may include application fees and additional official college transcripts. Special procedures for these programs are outlined in the appropriate program sections of this catalog.

Exam Placement Scores

ACT/SAT Exams

Academic degree-seeking students under 21 must take the ACT or SAT prior to admission and enrolling in courses. Career & Technical Education degree-seeking students must take a standardized achievement and aptitude test, ACT or SAT prior to admission and enrolling in courses. The test is NOT used to determine admission to LCSC for Career & Technical Education applicants. The results are used during the educational planning process to determine if the student is prepared for a technical program, and to assist all students in selecting appropriate level courses in which they will be successful.

Successful completion of college-level coursework indicated on official transcripts from previous colleges/universities may exempt a student from submitting test scores. Transfer students who have completed 14 or more college level (100-level or above) semester credits following high school graduation and are transferring English Composition and math, are exempt from submitting test scores. Academic degree-seeking students over age 21 and non-degree-seeking students are not required to submit test scores for admission; however, a placement score (or transfer class in English composition and/or math) is required if enrolling in courses that require English or math placement. Students who are not required to submit test scores for admission purposes but are not transferring English composition and/or math are strongly encouraged to submit standardized achievement and aptitude test scores before attending STAR (Student Advising and Registration).

All test scores must be no more than five years old from the date of course registration. However, test scores within two years from the date of course registration have proven to be a better predictor of course success. Therefore, it is LCSC’s recommendation that submitted test scores be no more than two years old from the date of course registration.

LCSC uses the highest sub-scores on both the ACT and SAT when making academic admission and scholarship decisions. In addition, LCSC uses the highest sub-scores on the ACT and SAT in the advisement and course placement of students. Since we use the highest separate scores from different test administrations (e.g. the highest critical reading, and mathematics scores from the SAT; the highest English, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning sub-scores from the ACT) students are encouraged to provide LCSC with all results from all administrations of the ACT, SAT or other standardized achievement and aptitude test.

For details concerning the ACT national testing dates, applicants may contact high school counselors or go to www.actstudent.org. Applicants who miss the six national test dates offered each year may arrange to attend a special exam held prior to each registration period. Call the Student Counseling Office for dates and fees charged for these special examinations. LCSC does not require the ACT Writing Test.

For details concerning the SAT national testing dates, applicants may contact high school or community college counselors, or go to www.sat.org.

Applicants may take a standardized achievement and aptitude test at LCSC in Lewiston. Schedule a time to take the test by calling the Testing Center at 208-792-2100. There is a fee associated with the test. The test scores may be faxed directly from the institution to be considered official to the Office of Admission/Registrar at 208-792-2876.
