Transcripts & Transfer of Credits

You can obtain your unofficial transcript from WarriorWeb. If you are applying to a college other than LCSC, you will need to send an official college transcript. You can order them online or by mail or fax.  Contact the Office of the Registrar for more information.

Dual credit courses are accepted by all Idaho institutions of higher education and most accredited institutions outside the state. Idaho’s colleges/universities are accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.  Specific programs also hold professional accreditation. Please refer to the current catalog for a list of the various commissions and associations

The institution where you may attend makes the final decision about acceptance of courses. Acceptance of any or all courses can vary and may be dependent upon the grade earned and the policy of the institution. It is the students' responsibility to check with the receiving college/university to verify that your dual credit classes will transfer. Check with Admissions for a list of transfer guides for schools where LC credits are frequently transferred.

Get the Grades

Grading System

Students who register for dual credit courses receive both high school and college credit for each course. The instructor will submit grades for the high school and college transcripts. Lewis-Clark State College uses a typical letter-grading system to indicate the instructor’s evaluations of a student’s performance. 

Students can review grades in WarriorWeb. Posting of final grades may take approximately 2-3 weeks after the course has ended. Students should check with their instructors regarding final grades. For additional information on grading, visit the Registrar's Office.

Credit Hours

Colleges and universities measure academic work with the credit hour. Credits are sometimes referred to as credit hours or semester hours. Credits for college courses typically range from one to five hours. Your college education will include a certain number of general education credits, a sufficient number of required courses, and electives for the major you choose. At LCSC, bachelor’s degrees consist of a minimum of 120 credit hours.

Academic Integrity

The college functions to promote the development of all students. Therefore, all work submitted by a student must represent his/her own ideas, concepts, and current understanding. Academic dishonesty in any form is unacceptable. Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating and plagiarism.

From the Lewis-Clark State College Student Code of Conduct:

Cheating – intentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized materials, information, or study aids in any academic exercise. The term “academic exercise” includes all forms of work submitted for credit hours.

Fabrication – intentional and/or unauthorized falsification or invention of any information or the source of any information in an academic exercise.

Collusion facilitating academic dishonesty – intentionally or knowingly helping or attempting to help another to commit an act of academic dishonesty.

Plagiarism – the deliberate adoption or reproduction of ideas or words or statement of another person as one’s own without acknowledgment.

Acts of academic dishonesty are subject to appropriate discipline through the student’s high school, with the exception of those students taking Dual Credit courses on-campus or online.

Title IX, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities operated by recipients of federal financial assistance (including sexual harassment and sexual violence), applies to all LCSC students and Dual Credit students, wherever they are taking classes. In Title IX-related cases, college officials will coordinate investigative and adjudication processes with high school officials. For more information, please see the Student Code of Conduct.

Drop/Withdrawal Policy

  1. If you decide not to take the class and need to drop/withdraw, you must follow the LCSC Drop/Total Withdrawal Policy guidelines.
  2. If all classes are being dropped, a signed Total Withdrawal Form must be submitted to the Registrar's Office in person or faxed to (208) 792-2429. Failure to do so will leave the class on your permanent college record with a failing grade.
  3. The 10th day of the LCSC term is the last day to drop/add a class for on-campus classes. The first day of the 10th week of the LCSC term is the last day to withdraw for on-campus classes.

Responsibility lies with you to initiate the drop/withdrawal process from a college credit course. Further, you
should remain aware of your anticipated final grade and keep the withdrawal deadline in mind. Withdrawal
deadlines are strictly enforced.

Academic Resources

Dual Credit students have access to a variety of support services for academic assistance (online and on-campus).

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law designed to protect the privacy of education records and is enforced by the Family Policy Compliance Office of the U.S. Department of Education (FPCO). Essentially, the act states that 1) "students" must be permitted to inspect their own "education records" and 2) "school officials" may not disclose personally identifiable information about a student without written permission from the student.

The Dual Credit Registration Form includes an information release statement. Therefore, by signing the form, students authorize school officials to disclose "academic and financial records" to the parents/guardians noted on the application.
