A student desiring to take course work as a transient student at another college must have his or her course approved in advance by the Registrar by completing the transient form. Approval must be granted prior to completing the course for transfer credit to be awarded. Transient permission will not be granted for a course in which the student has received a grade and all prerequisites for the course at Limestone University must be met. No more than 15 semester hours of correspondence course credit will be accepted toward the Associate or Bachelor’s degree.

CLEP/Dantes/Limestone University Credit by Exam:
Credit may be earned by degree seeking students by means of several types of credit by exams: CLEP, Dantes or a special exam subject through an academic division. A student must apply by completing the credit by exam form. The student must have approval prior to scheduling the examination. Credit cannot be earned by examination for any course in which a grade has been received or any course which has been audited. A maximum of twenty-five percent (25%) of all degree requirements may be earned through credit by examination. Courses for which a student earns credit by examination are considered transfer credits and therefore are not included in the total earned credit hours for graduation honors or grade point average. Seniors graduating in May must request credit by examination no later than March 15 and complete the exam no later than April 1. Seniors graduating in December must request the examination no later than October 15 and complete the exam no later than November 1st.

Official transcript requests can be made through Parchment by logging into the Student Kiosk (using your last name and SSN without dashes) and selecting “Request Official Transcript.” You may choose to send your transcript electronically or as a mailed paper copy. If you choose to send your transcript electronically, please provide the email address for the intended final recipient. If you have the transcript emailed to yourself, it cannot be forwarded to a third party or printed as an official document. It is only official when downloaded and opened by the initial recipient. Please be sure that the institution that will receive your transcript accepts electronic transcripts before requesting it to be sent in this manner.
