Transfer Articulation Agreements: Assoc. of Arts or Assoc. of Science

Transfer students who have earned an Associate of Arts (AA) degree or an Associate of Science (AS) degree awarded after January 1, 2010, in a university parallel program (typically consisting of 41-48 semester credit hours of general education coursework in the liberal arts disciplines) from a Tennessee, Kentucky, or Virginia community college shall be deemed to have met LMU’s General Education Core, except for the mission specific courses LNCN 100 and LNCN 300. Excerpt from page 32 of the 2018-2019 LMU Undergraduate Academic Catalog.
