The Registrar's Office is the keeper of grades and records. Whether you need a student record or course record, such as syllabi, the Registrar's Office is your resource. Requests for your transcripts also happen here.
A transcript contains records of courses taken, and grades and credit received. Official Landmark College transcripts, bearing the college seal and the Registrar's signature, may be released only upon written request of the student or alumni, in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974.
Transcripts may be withheld by order of appropriate college officials if any financial or other obligation to Landmark College remains unmet.
Need a Transcript?
Requests for transcripts must be made in writing to the Registrar's Office. Emailed and phone requests are not acceptable. Faxed requests are only accepted when accompanied by credit card payment information.
Only a current student or former student may request his or her transcript. The student's signature is required. Parents may not request their child's transcripts.
Each transcript costs $7.00. Cash, checks, money orders, and Visa and MasterCard are acceptable for payment. Payment must be received with the transcript request for it to be processed. Checks should be made payable to Landmark College.

Procedures Regarding Psycho-Educational Evaluations and Related Medical Records
Landmark College accepts the Association on Higher Education and Disability’s (AHEAD) interpretation of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) regarding disability-related information. Specifically, disability-related information “should be treated as medical information and handled under the same strict rules of confidentiality as is other medical information. This includes the comprehensive documentation from an appropriate source that persons with disabilities are often required to provide to establish the existence of their disability and their need for accommodation or consideration,” (emphasis added).*
AHEAD further maintains that:
"In the U.S., the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), also known as the Buckley Amendment, provides students with access to their own educational records. . . Treatment records of a physician, psychiatrist, psychologist, or other recognized professionals are exempt from disclosure under FERPA." (emphasis added).**
The medical records, including psycho-educational evaluations and related information, are therefore not part of the educational record of the student, and may not be disclosed. As detailed in 34 CFR Part 99, Subpart A, the term ‘education records’ does not include “Records on a student who is 18 years of age or older, or is attending an institution of postsecondary education, that are . . . Made or maintained by a physician, psychiatrist, psychologist, or other recognized professional or paraprofessional acting in his or her professional capacity or assisting in a paraprofessional capacity.”**
In accordance with federal law, Landmark College will not transfer, release, disclose, or otherwise offer for inspection for any purpose those records that are exempt from disclosure under FERPA, specifically including psycho-educational and related records.

Transfer Credit Policies
Only 30 credits—or the equivalent of 30 Landmark credits—may be transferred to Landmark.
Upon acceptance to the College, the Office of the Registrar will conduct an initial review and may accept up to 15 transfer credits, or 16 credits in the case of 4 credit, Natural Science laboratory courses. Following enrollment, declaration of degree, and documentation of a graduation plan, the College will conduct a second review upon the request of the student to determine if additional transfer credits beyond 15 or 16, and up to 30, are applicable to a student's identified degree.
Students may take courses at other institutions for transfer to Landmark during their time at Landmark (usually during summer) with pre-approval from the Registrar’s Office, as long as the maximum of 30 transfer credits is not exceeded.
Transfer credits (credits granted by other institutions) do not affect a student’s Landmark GPA (grade point average). The course and credits are transferred, but the grade is not transferred. Transfer credits will be accepted only from accredited institutions.
AP (Advanced Placement) credits, with the exception of English courses, may be accepted with a grade of 3 or higher in the course(s) and with appropriate documentation (College Grade Report). IB (International Baccalaureate) credits, with the exception of English courses, may be accepted with a grade of 4 or higher in the course(s) and with appropriate documentation (official transcript).
No course graded lower than C (or its equivalent) may be transferred to Landmark. No courses graded on a pass/fail basis, offered on a non-credit basis, or that are equivalent to non-credit courses at Landmark may be transferred. No remedial courses may be transferred to Landmark. No ESL (English as a Second Language) courses may be transferred.
No courses equivalent to EN1011 (College Composition and Rhetoric) or EN1021 (Research and Analysis) may be transferred*; all students are required to take their EN courses at Landmark because these courses serve as an introduction to our program, and contain many elements unique to Landmark that will be repeated, reinforced, and referred back to in later courses. These courses also do not transfer as electives at Landmark unless it can be clearly demonstrated that they are completely different from those at Landmark.
No courses equivalent to FY1001 (Foundations in Learning) or FY1011 (Perspectives in Learning) may be transferred**. No courses such as “Freshman Seminar,” “College Success,” or “Introduction to College,” or similar courses may be transferred. PE courses are not transferable.
Each institution’s course numbering system is different and courses must be evaluated based on course descriptions/syllabi to determine course level. For example, courses numbered at the 200/2000 level at other institutions are not automatically guaranteed to transfer at the 2000 level to Landmark.
*In the case of certain programs at Landmark College, these credits will be accepted for transfer at the discretion of the Office of Academic Affairs.
**In the case of certain programs at Landmark College, the requirements are waived at the discretion of the Office of Academic Affairs. These courses will be considered for transfer on a case-by-case basis.

Participatory Design is a method which involves users in the design process to ensure products meet user requirements. Research in STEM learning indicates that a key factor in creating an effective STEM curriculum is to provide accessible opportunities to engage students in group problem solving. Such an approach allows for on-the-spot reasoning and discussion, and allows students to test their own understanding (Wieman & Perkins, 2005) through practical hands-on engagement. Landmark College students were given examples of Participatory Design and then had the opportunity to evaluate and design accessible mobile Apps or games using this method. In this paper we review the results.

Landmark College is known for working with students with learning disabilities and ADHD, but now they are working to understand more of the complex needs of students with multiple disabilities, particularly students with autism-spectrum disorders. At other institutions where I’ve worked, it was always a challenge to find enough students to do field research; about 3 percent to 9 percent of the population of postsecondary students has a learning disability. It’s different here at Landmark, where all of our 500 students have diagnosed learning disabilities.
