Welcome to the Enrollment Office at Leech Lake Tribal College! My name is Stacey Lundberg and I am the Director of Enrollment Services. In order to register for classes, you must first be accepted to the college. The admissions office handles all new incoming students. You will be required to complete an online application and submit a copy of your high school diploma or GED in addition to your tribal enrollment verification. Once you’ve been accepted, you will receive an acceptance letter giving you further instructions. 

 The first step will be to take the COMPASS Placement Test. In order to schedule an appointment for this test, please contact the Student Services Office. This placement test will give our academic advisors additional information about your academic competency in the areas of math, writing and reading. You will meet with an academic advisor to discuss your program of interest and to choose your classes for the upcoming semester. Your academic advisor will also walk you through a tentative schedule of classes you will need in order to graduate from Leech Lake Tribal College. If you are already a current student, you can register for classes online. You will just need to log in to your portal and go to the Registration tab. Make sure to discuss your course choices with your academic and faculty advisors prior to registration. Do not register for courses that are not in your degree program as they may not be eligible for funding. If you have a hold on your account you will need to register in the Student Services Office. The Student Services Office is located in Cedar Hall. We are here to assist students in all areas of enrollment, advising and financial aid. Do not hesitate to pay us a visit.

Sincerely,

Stacey Lundberg
Director of Enrollment Services

Transfer Students

Back to Top

We are glad you have chosen Leech Lake Tribal College to continue your educational goals!

Transfer students are defined as having previously attended another University or Community College; who have not earned a degree. If you have previously earned a degree, please visit our Second Degree section.

All transfer students must submit an Official Transcript from all colleges attended; Unofficial Transcripts will be accepted if directly mailed from the institution. The following credits will be accepted for transfer:

  • Courses with letter grades of "C" or better
  • Courses earned within the past ten (10) years
  • 100/1000+ level courses (development/remedial courses will not transfer)

No more than 34 credits may be transferred from other institutions in order to meet the degree requirements of LLTC.

Transfer Policy

It is the responsibility of the Registrar to conduct the evaluation for academic transcripts from the previous college that transfer students have attended. Since LLTC is a two-year college, only the first two years or courses that are below the junior year level will be accepted as transfer courses form regional accredited colleges and Universities. Only courses that have full equivalency to LLTC courses and courses with a grade of "C" or better will be accepted. A maximum of thirty-four credits from accredited colleges and institutes will be accepted. LLTC will not accept transfer credits that are more than 10 years old.

Course Evaluation Process

The Registrar will review each course on the transcript individually. The Registrar must have available as many college catalogues as possible that provide a representation of the colleges and Universities from which the majority of your students transfer. The best possible scenario is that a course being considered for acceptance will have a similar course number and similar course title.

If the course number and or titles are different, the Registrar must match the potential transfer course description with the LLTC course description that is similar. If the evaluation indicated that the transfer course is totally different, no credit will be given. Care must also be taken to check the credit hours for the transfer course and whether they are semester or quarter credits. Since LLTC uses the semester credit hour system any quarter hour credits must be converted to semester hours by applying this formula. A quarter hour credit is equivalent to 2/3 of a semester hour credit.

Course Transfer Form

The course transfer form is completed by the Registrar when evaluating transfer credits. The form and official transcript are forwarded to the VP of Student & Academic Affairs for approval. Upon approval, courses will then be entered into the student academic management information system with notification mailed to the student and copies to Financial Aid Office and Academic Advisors.

Posting Accepted Transfer Credit

After the Registrar has determined the course and the number of credits that LLTC will accept, the accepted credits must be posted on the student information system. It will be indicated on the study plan in the transfer column. After the evaluation is completed and transfer courses posted, the Registrar will mail the transfer evaluation to the student and forward copies to the Academic Advisor and Financial Aid Office. Transcript evaluation and accepted course posting must be completed as soon as possible after receipt of the academic transcript.

The LLTC transcripts will reflect each transfer course accepted. There will be an indication identifying the College or University from which the credit was transferred. Accepted courses are posted on student study plan.

Transfer Student's Appeal

If a transfer student is unsatisfied with the result of the Registrar's evaluation and credits accepted, the student may appeal to the VP of Student & Academic Affairs. The appeal to the VP of Student & Academic Affairs must be in writing and submitted within five working days of the student's receiving the transcript evaluation results. The VP of Student & Academic Affairs will review the case and make a final determination. The Registrar will notify the student of the result of the appeal, and a copy will be placed in the student's file.
