Incoming Transcript Evaluation Procedures West Building, W207
Evaluation of credits will only occur for admitted students at LWTech. Use the following steps to have courses from other accredited colleges transferred to LWTech:
 Official transcripts may be brought, electronically sent, or mailed to LWTech. If transcripts are brought to the college they must be in a sealed envelope. The initiating school (where you last attended) may also mail or electronically send transcripts to LWTech.
 For the year you attended the prior college either college catalogs or course descriptions must be submitted to Enrollment Services. Additional information may be required and not all courses may be transferable. Evaluation of out-of-state and international transcripts and non-technical courses more than five years old may require additional review.
 Transfer of technical courses requires faculty advisor review. Faculty may or may not accept for transfer technical courses more than five years old .
 Credit may be awarded for advanced placement, international, baccalaureate, or CLEP credits. Student Toolbox
Student toolbox helps manage your educational career without waiting in line. Accessing these services requires using the student identification number (SID) and personal identification number (PIN); typically set as a student’s birthday in month/day/year (MMDDYY) format. These services allow access to manage the student’s account, register for classes, monitor waitlists status, and check financial aid application status.
Specific Class Wait Lists
When registering for a full class students may add their name to that classes’ wait list. Once added, check the waitlist status using student toolbox. Check the student toolbox “my schedule” to verify class registration, if the waitlist disappears. Students may remove their name from the waitlist using the student toolbox “waitlist” option. Students are encouraged to attend the first day of class regardless of waitlist status. The instructor is able to add or drop students from the class.
Full and Part-Time Student Status
LWTech considers students enrolled in 12 or more credits full-time enrolled. This corresponds to financial aid full-time enrollment status. Some programs may require higher quarterly credit loads to complete requirements in a specific time period. Some external agencies use different credit values to calculate full-time status. LWTech considers students registered for fewer than 12 credits part-time. Please consult the Financial Aid Office for definitions of three-quarter time, half-time, and less than half- time.
Withdrawing From Courses
Course withdrawal occurs when a student drops a course in person, through web services, in writing, by signed fax, or using a college generated email address to contact the Enrollment Services department. The ability to drop courses via web services ends at the end the of the 100% refund period as noted in the quarterly class schedule. Withdrawing from a class funded with financial aid may reduce financial aid eligibility. Contact the Financial Aid department for information to determine eligibility.
Transcripts and Grades
A transcript is the official record of all courses and received grades. Students may request official transcripts by ordering them online through National Student Clearinghouse. Students may also order transcripts with a records request. Use Student Toolbox to access unofficial transcripts.
Degree and Certificate General Requirements
