Evaluating, awarding, and accepting academic credit not originating from Luther Rice is conducted in accordance with institutional policies and procedures informed by the Joint Statement on Transfer and Award of Credits. The Luther Rice Transfer of Academic Credit Policies and Procedures are developed and approved by the Luther Rice Office of Admissions and Faculty and disseminated in various forms to Luther Rice constituents via the Luther Rice Catalog, Student Handbook, Admissions Policies and Procedures Manual, and website.

In addition to institutional credits, students may receive credit for other completed educational accomplishments. Luther Rice acceptance of non-instructional credit is limited to the military (Joint Service Transcript), CPE (Continuing Practical Education), and CLEP (College Level Examination Program). All other forms of experiential learning, prior learning assessments, credit by examination, or conversion of prior noncredit experiences are not eligible for transfer. Luther Rice does not offer transfer of credit for advanced placement or remedial courses and does not maintain any articulation agreements with other institutions.
