Frequently Asked Questions about Bachelor's Degrees
When do I formally declare my intention to pursue a bachelor's degree?
Credit students may declare their intended degree upon entry; if they would like, they can enter “undeclared.” Undeclared students should declare their degree upon the successful completion of nine credits. All students must declare their degree upon reaching 27 successful credits.
Students entering in the Language Intensive Curriculum (LIC) / Partial Credit points of entry may declare their degree upon entering in to full credit (taking at least 9 credits/semester).
What does it mean to declare a bachelor's degree?
Declaring means that you intend to pursue a bachelor's degree over the course of your time at Landmark College. You can then focus on taking the courses needed to complete the bachelor's degree and organize a plan for when and how to take them.
What if I don’t have a 2.0 GPA?
It is important for you to have acceptable grades to be successful in a bachelor's degree program (particularly in the upper-level courses). Of course, we’d love for you to have stellar grades. Still, if you experienced a challenging first semester, but it looks like you’re on course for success, we’ll be happy to review your plans on a case-by-case basis. In general, declaring a bachelor's degree track requires demonstrated progress in credit-bearing courses.
Can I declare a bachelor's degree based on credits I earned at another college?
We will assess your transfer credits and apply them, as appropriate, towards your bachelor's degree. We will accept as many as 80 transfer credits towards a bachelor's degree. Please see the transfer credit policy for details.
What if I change my mind, or it is determined that I will not progress in a bachelor's degree program?
As the first couple of years of the bachelor's degree programs resemble our associate degree programs, you will be positioned to switch to one of these programs as desired or needed.
