Lenoir-Rhyne University understands the needs of transfer students and has made a commitment to serve those needs. Whether you're transferring from a community college or another four-year institution, we want to make the process as easy as possible.

If you have earned an Associate of Arts degree from a NC Community College, the remaining LRU core requirements include: 6 credit hours of foreign language (if not previously taken), Religion 100, COM 111 (public speaking) and two Level II courses.  Note that Level II core courses are not transferrable.

Let us show you how easy the transfer process can be!
