As a CTE student, you are actually earning college credits through Lakeland. This will give you a leg up when you decide to continue your education at Lakeland, or continue your education to earn a bachlor's or graduate degree at another college or university.
Students must earn a 2.75 overall GPA in their CTE program to qualify for college credit.
All you have to do is claim your free college credit in three simple steps:
- Send us your bilateral agreement
Your instructor will provide you with a bilateral agreement which needs to be signed by you and your instructor. Then, your instructor must submit the signed agreement to the Lakeland CTE office. Please include your Lakeland Identification (LID) number on the front of the document. Lakeland sent this number to you via email after you applied and were accepted to Lakeland.
- Send us your high school transcript
Have your high school send the Lakeland CTE office a copy of your final, official transcript. Requesting your transcript is easy. Get more details on transcripts here. They can be sent electronically or via physical mail.
- Apply to Lakeland
Students must apply to Lakeland, regardless of where they plan to go to college. Applying is easy, and only takes a few minutes. Acceptance of credit is guaranteed if you attend Lakeland.
Important: You will need to claim your credits within two years of completing high school.
Please note that each college or university makes an independent decision as to whether they will accept credit(s). Acceptance of credit is only guaranteed if you attend Lakeland. You will receive the most credit if you use it at Lakeland and stay on the same career path.
You can access the "Request for Transfer" form through the Parchment Lakeland Community College (OH) Transcript Request.
Your transcript will be sent to its destination upon payment of the transfer fee and submission of the form.
