Students registered for Technical Competency Credits will begin building a college transcript at Lewis-Clark State College (LCSC). The credits earned under the Advanced Opportunities program are technical college credits, not academic credits. These credits will be most valuable to students with career goals in technical areas. However, most colleges, including LCSC, will accept these credits as elective credits which can accompany any future degree. If a student wishes to transfer credits to another institution, it is the student's responsibility to ensure that the receiving institution will accept technical credits as either a program requirement or as an elective credit.
Technical Competency Credit policy requires a passing grade of "B" or better. Once a student has recieved a final grade of "B" or better, the student can apply and pay the $10 per credit fee to receive college technical credit. Please see the Financial Aid SAP Policy for more information. You may also contact the Advanced Opportunities office by phone at (208) 792-2418 if you have any questions.
