Transfer Students

Transfer applicants are considered for admission on the basis of their previous college records. Applicants must submit a completed "Application for Admission" form, and official transcripts from all colleges previously attended. Transfer applicants must be in good standing with all institutions previously attended. Students on scholastic or disciplinary suspension from another institution must petition the appropriate dean or Vice President for Academic Affairs for individual approval. Contact the Admission Office for further information.

Students transferring from a Texas public college or university are subject to the same TASP requirements that apply to current students. (See special TASP section for details). Therefore, transfer students from Texas public colleges and universities who began their college careers in the 1989 fall semester or later and who have accumulated at least nine (9) hours of college-level credit must have TASP scores on file. Otherwise, enrollment will be limited to remedial and/or other courses which will not count toward graduation.

Students transferring from a non-Texas public college or university who began their college career with the 1989 fall semester or later will have to take the TASP test either before or during the semester of enrollment in their nine (9) credit hour of college-level course work at Lamar State College-Port Arthur.

Credit earned at other accredited institutions will be considered for credit at Lamar State College-Port Arthur according to the following guidelines:

  • All courses, whether passed, failed, or repeated, are used in calculating the cumulative grade point average of "D" may not count towards graduation.
  • Acceptance to Lamar State College-Port Arthur does not constitute acceptance to a particular degree or certificate program.
