Since LWT measures its period of attendance in clock hours rather than credit hours, credits earned at other institutions are not accepted. There are no articulation or transfer agreements with any other colleges or universities. However, if the student has current up-to-date welding certifications from other facilities, LWT can waive the requirements needed for certain courses.
Transfers between the following courses can be considered if done before the end of the 3rd week of the course (instructional day 15).
- If a current student is enrolled in the 120 hour Gas Metal Arc Welding Couse and chooses to transfer to the 480 hour Combination Welder I Program.
- If a current student is enrolled in the 200 hour Gas Metal Arc Welding Couse and chooses to transfer to the 640 hour Combination Welder II Program.
- If a current student is enrolled in the 480 hour Combination Welder I Program and chooses that they would like to transfer into the 640 hour Combination Welder II Program.
Additionally, this transfer can only be done between the two classes if the two classes start on the same start date. Please refer to the Admissions Department or the course schedule for more information on start dates.
Transfers will only be considered if the student is deemed within the boundaries of the Satisfactory Academic Policy (SAP), see SAP in the Academic Section for information regarding the guidelines. The remaining tuition for the course selected for transfer must be paid in full before the transfer is approved.
Students wanting to do a transfer, will need to obtain the “Transfer Form” from the Admissions Department. Once the form is filled out and submitted to the school, Admissions will take into consideration all Transfer Policy requirements and notify the student if the transfer is accepted verbally and in writing, effective immediately.
The following situations are not applicable to LWT and therefor would have no effect on SAP: incompletes, repetitions, noncredit remedial courses, summer terms, or changes in major.
