A transfer applicant shall be expected to have maintained a “C” average (2.0 grade point average), for all college work previously attempted. However, a student may be admitted on probationary status. 2. Transferring students must designate a degree goal and major at the associate or baccalaureate level. The only transfers necessary would be those that are applicable to the specific degree status sheet selected. Credit older than ten years from the date of transfer is not transferable to OLC. 3.
