College Credit Guide

Options and Information

Use this guide to understand options available to you, as a Landmark Learning prospective, current, or alumni student. This guide is not a guarantee that any college credit option you elect will automatically be received and accepted by your school or university. 

A Registrar accepts or denies transcripts and transfer requests, according to their institution’s written policies and procedures. If you are currently enrolled in a college or degree-seeking program, it is advisable for you to work with your advisor and/or department head to understand specific requirements and processes in accepting credit from outside schools so you are aware of your credit options before attending a Landmark Learning course. 

Because of the many complexities involved in credit transfer, Landmark Learning continues to work with several institutions to create relationships meant to best support the greatest number of students desiring college credit for their course experiences. Current options are described below - again, talk with your school directly. There may already exist an avenue for you to obtain college credit for your Landmark Learning experience!

General process for obtaining college credit for your course at Landmark Learning:

  1. Check with your advisor or department head about specific needs to have your LL course transferred to your school.

  2. Sign up and pay for your elected credits as soon as possible at your school or through one of our provided college credit relationships, below.

  3. Enroll in your Landmark Learning course of choice, paying course costs/tuition. Be sure to plan ahead as many popular options fill early and have long waitlists.

  4. Alert the Landmark Learning office when you enroll that you are planning to gain college credit for your course, and provide them with any forms or information necessary for them to assist you.

  5. Attend and successfully complete your course. Follow up with any required paperwork BEFORE you leave your course. Often, college credit will NOT be granted post-course.

  6. Request a college credit transfer or official transcript from the credit-granting option you elected at enrollment, and have it sent directly to your institution’s Registrar.

  7. Follow up with your institution to be sure they have received the credit transfer or transcript, and to verify any credit granted.
