If the transfer student is admitted upon appeal, the student will enter the insti-tution on Academic Probation. The transcript will read ADMITTED UPON APPEAL— ACADEMIC PROBATION.
 

Transfer Credit Evaluation Policy
Prospective students who have earned college credits at another institution must present an official transcript to the Director of Admissions and Records at least one month prior to registering for classes. The transcript will be evaluated and transfer credit will be determined as soon as possible. Requests for transfer credit presented to the Director of Admissions and Records in an untimely manner will be evaluated as time permits.

General Principles for Transfer of Credit
1. Coursework transferred or accepted for credit toward an undergraduate program must represent collegiate coursework relevant to the formal award, with course content and level of instruction resulting in student competencies at least equivalent to those of students enrolled in the College’s own undergraduate formal award programs. In assessing and documenting equivalent learning and qualified faculty, recognized guides which aid in the evaluation of credit will be used. Such guides include those published by the American Council on Education, The American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, and the National Association of Foreign Student Affairs.
2. A course completed at other regionally accredited postsecondary institutions with a passing grade will be accepted for transfer as potentially creditable toward graduation requirements.
3. A transfer student from a collegiate institution not accredited by the appropriate regional association, or the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges may request an evaluation of transfer credits after completing 15 semester hours with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above.
4. A transfer grade of “D” will only be accepted when the transfer student’s cumulative GPA is 2.0 or above at the time of admission. If the student has a cumulative 2.0 or above, the “D” grade will be accepted the same as for native students.
5. Credit may be extended based on a comprehensive evaluation of demonstrated and documented competencies and previous formal training.

Transfer of Students between Programs within the Institution
An enrolled student may transfer to a different program of study if he/she meets admission requirements and there is a vacancy in the program. Any academic credit previously earned which is applicable to the new program of study will be transferred.

Admission of Transient Students

A transient/transfer student who attended another postsecondary institution and who seeks credit for transfer to that parent institution may be admitted to the College as a transient student. The student must submit an application for admission and an official letter or transient form from the institution which certifies that the credit earned at the College will be accepted as a part of the student’s academic program. Such a student is not required to file transcripts of previously earned credits at other postsecondary institutions.

Prior Learning Assessment
Lurleen B. Wallace Community College recognizes that learning occurs in a variety of ways. Individuals can develop mastery of course competencies through employment, training, and other experiences, which is termed “prior learning”. College credit can be awarded for prior learning from which the skills that comprise courses (terminal objectives) are mastered to an acceptable degree of proficiency and the individual documents skill mastery.

Awarding Credit through Prior Learning Assessment (PLA)
1. Credit for prior learning can be awarded only after the assessment of prior learning experiences and only for documented learning that demonstrates achievement of all terminal objectives for a specific course or courses.
2. The student must enroll in Lurleen B. Wallace Community College and meet all admission requirements for the program in which course credit for prior learning is being sought.
3. The student must obtain the Request for Prior Learning Assessment Form from the appropriate division chair.
4. Credit for academic transfer courses awarded through PLA may only be awarded by exam-ination or nationally recognized guidelines (AP, CLEP, ACT/PEP, DANTES, Challenge Exams, ACE PONSI/CREDIT, ACE/MILITARY). Credit for experiential learning (portfolio review) may not be awarded for academic transfer courses.
5. There will be a charge of $25 for each portfolio review to assess experiential learning for college credit. Documentation must be provided for each course for which credit through experiential learning is requested, and the $25 fee applies to each review of the documentation (e.g., individual is charged $50 if the person is seeking credit through experiential learning for two courses, and thereby requires portfolio reviews in relation to those two courses.) Students seeking credit for academic transfer courses through examination or nationally recognized guidelines are not charged a fee for PLA or for credits awarded through PLA.
6. Not more than 25% of total credit required for any program may be awarded as a result of PLA. Credit awarded through PLA does not count toward the minimum of 25 percent of semester credit hours that must be completed at the college granting the degree.
7. Course credit earned through prior Learning shall be noted on the student’s transcript as having been awarded through PLA. Credit may not be awarded twice for the same learning.
 

Admission of Accelerated High School Students

The Accelerated High School program allows high school students the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. College credit earned through the Accelerated High School program may not substitute for high school credit.

A student is eligible for early admission if the student meets all of the following criteria:
1. The student has successfully completed the tenth grade;
2. The student provides a certification from the local principal and/or his or her designee certifying that the student has a minimum cumulative “B” average and recommends the student be admitted under this policy;
3. The student may enroll only in postsecondary courses for which high school prerequisites have been completed (for example, a student may not take English Composition until all required high school English courses have been completed).
4. Students are required to complete the COMPASS placement exam or document ACT scores of 20 or higher in English and mathematics.
Exceptions may be granted by the Chancellor for a student documented as gifted and talented according to the standards in Alabama Administrative Code section 290-8-9-12.

Admission of Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit for High School Students

The purpose of this policy is to allow eligible high school students to enroll in college classes concurrently with high school classes, either on the college campus or at the high school, and to receive both high school and college credit.
 

Institutions within the Alabama Community College System are authorized to establish dual enrollment/dual credit programs with local boards of education in the College service area. Courses offered by postsecondary institutions shall be of postsecondary level and enrolled students must pay normal tuition as required by the postsecondary institution, or as stipulated in a contract for services between the two levels. A student is eligible for dual enrollment/dual credit if the student meets all of the following criteria:
1. The student must meet the entrance requirements established by Lurleen B. Wallace Community College, an institution of postsecondary education.
2. The student has a minimum cumulative 3.0 average in completed high school courses. Transcripts must be provided as documentation of the student’s cumulative grade average.
3. The student must have written approval of the appropriate principal and the local super-intendent of education. Student access to Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment is dependent upon both academic readiness and social maturity. Approval from the principal and superintendent indicates that the student has demonstrated both. Unless the student can demonstrate the ability to benefit from college level instruction, special education students are not eligible for enrollment under this policy.
4. The student must be in grade 10, 11, or 12 or have an exception granted by the participat-ing postsecondary institution upon recommendation of the student’s principal and superintendent and in accordance with Alabama Administrative Code 290-8-9.17 regarding gifted and talented students.
5. All students will be COMPASS tested and must meet pre-requisites for all approved courses at the college.
 

Students enrolled in courses offered during the normal high school day on or off the high school campus shall have prior permission of the students’ principal, superintendent, and LBWCC president. Parental permission and travel for courses offered off the high school campus during the normal school day will be administered under the auspices of local boards of education.
 

NOTE: Upon completion of the Dual Enrollment credits, it is the student’s responsibility to submit a written request to the Director of Admissions and Records in order for the college credit to be submitted to the high school in which the student is enrolled.
 

Course Eligibility
Courses offered shall be drawn from the College’s existing academic inventory of courses offered for credit. Courses numbered below 100 and physical education courses are not eligible for dual enrollment/dual credit. Students may not audit courses under the terms of this policy (Policy 801.03). Eligible high school students are permitted to enroll in college courses conducted during school hours, after school hours, and during summer terms. The College reserves the right to cancel course offerings when courses do not meet minimum enrollment requirements.
 

Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit Agreement
Participating local boards of education and postsecondary institutions shall develop a Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit Agreement that includes but is not limited to the following:
A. Approval of the particular courses to be offered and the high school equivalency for each course shall be determined through the mutual agreement of the participating postsecondary institution(s) and the participating local board of education. Courses must be of Postsecondary level.
B. Dual Credit/ Dual Enrollment instructors shall be faculty of the College. A high school teacher employed to teach in dual credit/dual enrollment will be designated as an adjunct faculty member of the College and therefore must meet the credentialing requirements of the State Board of Education and other accrediting agencies. Faculty must be under the ultimate control and supervision of the College. The College must provide for faculty orientation, supervision, and evaluation. Documentation of appropriate instructor credentials which meet or exceed accrediting agencies must be on file at the College. College faculty credential shall be provided to the local school board of education as needed to meet credential standards of accrediting agencies.
C. The College shall be responsible for the compensation of faculty, in accordance with State Board of Education and college policy. Faculty may not receive dual compensation for instruction time.
D. Six semester hours at the postsecondary level shall equal one credit at the high school level in the same or related subject. Partial credit agreements shall be developed between the College and the School Board. The State Board of Education Policy 705.01 defines a “credit hour” as not less than 50 minutes of instructor/student contact. A semester/quarter hour of credit is based upon the average number of hours of instruction taught weekly, the ratio of weekly contact hours to credit hour varies with the type of instruction being used. There are four general categories of instruction: theory, experimental laboratory, clinical practice/manipulative laboratory, and internship.
E. College courses approved for dual credit shall be posted on both high school and college transcripts. Courses completed for dual credit shall be transcripted with the appropriate statement at the postsecondary level indicating dual enrollment credit.
F. Payment of the current rate of tuition and fees per credit hour, textbooks and materials will be the responsibility of the student unless other resources are available. Full payment of tuition must be completed by the first day of class. School Boards will be notified of any unpaid tuition and fees prior to the start of classes.
G. A plan for an annual evaluation of dual enrollment/dual credit shall be prepared and shall adhere to guidelines of the Department of Postsecondary Education. The College and the local School Board shall assume the responsibility for reporting required information in a timely manner.
H. Students are responsible for knowing policies relative to dual enrollment/dual credit of colleges/universities to which they plan to transfer credit. The College reserves the right to refuse admission to any student who is found to be in violation of college policies (academic standards of progress, Student Code of Conduct, etc.)
I. Methods for addressing student related issues such as: admissions, procedures, advisement, monitoring and evaluation, privacy rights, ADA issues, and verification of student attendance must be addressed in the agreement.
J. Transportation for any student receiving instruction at any facility other than a school campus of the local School Board shall be the responsibility of the parents/guardian of such students unless otherwise negotiated between the College and the local School Board.
K. Each party agrees to provide a mechanism for communicating the educational and economic benefits as well as the requirements for participation and enrollment procedures to parents and students. This must include the student’s release of educational records as defined by FERPA and between the College and the local School Board.
L. A copy of Policy 801.03 and its guidelines must be included in the Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit Agreement.

Tech Prep Articulated Credits
To receive articulated credit for Tech Prep courses from secondary education institutions, a student must submit a completed Career/Technical Education Course Articulation Credit Request Form to the Dean of Instruction who serves as the College’s Tech Prep Coordinator. These forms may be obtained from the Dean of Instruction or high school career technical administrators and career technical instructors. Statewide articulation agreements are reviewed annually and revised as needed by the Alabama Community College System and State Department of Education. Students who complete the quality assurance criteria outlined below will receive articulated credit to the Alabama College System institution of their choice. Performance or knowledge testing of secondary program graduates is not required as part of the articulation process.

The college and local education agencies may create local articulation agreements only in courses for which no statewide agreement exists.
 

Course Articulation Quality Assurance Criteria:
1. A current Statewide Career/Technical Education Course Articulation Agreement (the “articulation agreement”) is in effect for the postsecondary course for which articulation credit is sought.
2. The secondary courses applicable to the articulation agreement are certified under the

5. The student must be admitted to the College from which articulation credit is granted.
6. A student may receive articulation credit only for courses creditable to his or her declared program of study.
7. Articulation credit must be requested by the student within 16 months of high school graduation.
8. Secondary coursework completed in grades 11 and 12 is eligible for articulation credit. Further, students who complete coursework in the 10th grade and continue and complete in the same program areas through the 11th and 12th grade are eligible for statewide articulation credit.
9. Articulation credit is not available in postsecondary courses for which there is an age requirement that was not met by the student at the time the student passed the secondary course(s) for which articulation credit is sought.
10. Articulation credit is not available in postsecondary courses if granting such credit violates policies or regulations of licensure agencies or regulatory boards.
11. The secondary teacher or Career/Tech Administrator is authorized to provide certification signatures.
