Returning & Transfer Students
Welcome back to LTCC - we are very excited that you're returning to Elevate Your Education on our campus! If you've skipped two or more consecutive quarters at LTCC, you'll need to update your application and follow the steps below.
Steps to Enrollment for Returning Students
You will begin by updating your information at OpenCCC's online application.
During this process you will be asked to update your intended major and educational goal, along with some basic personal, educational and residency information.
If you have completed courses at another college, official transcripts are REQUIRED.
Math placement tests are a way to help you enter college at the right level. Placement tests assess your math skills. Your counselor will use this information to help you choose the right Math classes.
Assessment tests are administered on a first come first serve basis.
High school or transcripts from another college are critical for proper English placement. Please bring official transcripts to your Counseling appointment, or have your transcripts mailed to LTCC.

Pick up your transcript
If you request to pick up your official transcript, you will be notified when the request has been processed. No transcripts will be issued/released for student pickup without all of the following:
- Photo ID
- Signature or written release from the student
- Pay fee, if necessary
It usually takes 2-3 weeks after the last day of final exams for each quarter before grades are posted to official transcripts. If your instructor has already entered grades for your class, you may be able to view the unofficial grades via Passport prior to the transcript posting date for all classes.
Graduation information including degree and date awarded is posted to the transcript by August 31st of each year for students who graduate in June with a spring conferral. Students must complete all course requirements prior to the deadlines for completion in order for the degree to be posted.
The first two official transcripts ever requested by a student at One-Stop will be provided without charge. Each additional transcript is $5.00. Normal processing time (depending on the time of year) is 7–10 business days. Rush service (processed in 2-4 business days) is an additional $10 per transcript request form submitted. If you request transcripts to be mailed, please allow additional transit time for mail delivery. All fees are payable in advance.
