Transfer students must complete a minimum of 50 percent of the required credits for graduation at Lansdale School of Business. Transfer students must also complete a minimum of 50 percent of the division and concentration requirements at Lansdale School of Business. Receiving transfer credits will not necessarily reduce the total length of time needed to complete a program of study.
Students who have received 50% of their credits from transfer credits are not eligible to earn additional credits through credit-by-exams. Students who have less than 50% of their credits transferred from another institution or program at Lansdale School of Business may earn additional credits through credit-by-exams, not to exceed 50% of the total credits required for their program of study.
Students who opt to take a course, in which they received a transfer credit, or credit-by-exam credits, will not receive double credit. Students who opt to take a course even though they earned a transfer credit or credit-by-exam, will have the grade earned for the course taken calculated in the student’s grade point average. All credits that are transferred or earned by a credit-by-exam are counted as classes completed and as credits attempted.
It is the student’s responsibility to provide official sealed transcripts to the Executive Director. Normally, no transfer credits will be awarded after the end of the student’s first semester (two sessions) at Lansdale School of Business. Students should not take a course that is scheduled for which they have requested a transfer of credit. They should see the Academic Dean or Student Services and request a schedule change.
Transfer of Credit from Other Institutions
Lansdale School of Business considers credits for transfer from accredited business schools, colleges, and universities. Credits are considered for transfer provided the courses are similar in objectives and content to those offered at LSB and the letter grade (or equivalent) of the course is “C” or better. Transcripts submitted to meet entrance requirements by transfer students are evaluated by the Executive Director. The transcript will be evaluated officially only after the applicant has been formally admitted to the school. Transfer credits awarded are not calculated in the student's GPA.
Earned academic credits from accredited schools that did not result in a terminal degree cannot be over ten years old to qualify for transfer. However, any credits over ten years old that were used to complete a degree and are deemed appropriate by the Executive Director may be considered.
Transfer credits may not be earned while enrolled as a LSB student, except when special circumstances would warrant a waiver of this policy by the Executive Director. An example of when a waiver might be granted would be for a student who was near completion of his/her program of study and the student moved from the area, or entered the armed forces. The student would have to be in good academic standing and close to completing their program of study at Lansdale School of Business.
Transfer of Credit to Other Institutions
Information concerning other schools which may accept LSB credits toward their programs can be obtained by contacting the Student Services Office. However, Lansdale School of Business does not guarantee transferability of credits to any other college, university, or institution. Any decision on the comparability, appropriateness, and applicability of credits and whether they should be accepted is the decision of the receiving institution. It should not be assumed that any courses or programs described in this catalog can be transferred to another institution.
If you wish to take one of the certification tests, you must notify Donna Romano three weeks before the payment deadline for an application.

I was interested in LSB because it was a small school with flexible schedules so I could tend to my family's needs. I am soon to graduate and just completed my externship at a Dermatologist's office where I have accepted a position as a Medical Assistant. I am so happy with what I learned at LSB, and though it was challenging, it was well worth it.Read More »
LSB provides a well-rounded program with diversity in the courses offered. I've been introduced to many areas within the Legal field that I'll encounter when job searching. The Instructors offer excellent expertise and use their own personal industry examples to help students learn. A mock trial in Criminal Law class allowed students to participate in a trial officiated by a Professional Judge. It's been a life changing experience and has opened my eyes to a different world of learning and an understanding of the need for Community legal aid.Read More »
