Transfer Student

An applicant who has previously attended another regionally accredited postsecondary institution(s) is considered a transfer student. Official transcripts from these institutions should be mailed directly to:

Lurleen B. Wallace Community College
Admissions Office
P. O. Box 1418
Andalusia, AL 36420

In addition, the following items are also required:
 - a completed LBWCC Application for Admission 
 - an acceptable form of identification and documentation of Alabama residency for those applicants claiming in-state status for tuition purposes (for example, an Alabama driver’s license)
 - COMPASS Placement Test results or ACT scores of 20 or higher in English, reading, and mathematics. Transfer students who have completed degree-creditable, college-level English or mathematics courses with a grade of “C” or better will exempt the COMPASS requirement. Transcripts are required documenting these courses before a transfer student is exempted from the COMPASS test.
 - all male students between the ages of 18 and 26 must have registered with the U.S. Selective Service System
 - other documents required of first-time students may also be required

Applicants with the above credentials are considered “degree eligible”.

Transfer student applicants who have earned the baccalaureate degree will be required to submit only the transcript from the institution granting the baccalaureate degree; however, if additional coursework completed at another college is needed to fulfill an LBWCC degree or certificate requirement, official transcripts from that college will also be required.
