Advising & Academic Progress

Your success at LBCC is very important to us! That's why we believe that it is important that you take control of your own education! As you begin to understand the ins and outs of college in the U.S., here are a few things to reference as you move forward.

Meeting with your Advisor

Academic Advisors are great resources for students! You can meet with an academic advisor to discuss the classes you need to take along with your goals for your career. When you meet with an academic advisor, go with a question or two in mind that you can ask during your appointment. This will allow you to learn more about their experience and/or how they can help you!

Transferring Credits to LBCC from another College

To get credit for courses taken at other institutions and to process overrides prerequisites, it is important that you submit official transcripts to LBCC. You may send transcripts to the Admissions Office at the following address:

Linn-Benton Community College Admissions

6500 Pacific Blvd. SW

Albany, OR 97321

If you have e-Transcipts, please send those to transcripts@linnbenton.edu.

Academic Progress

As an international student, you are required to be making satisfactory academic progress towards a degree or certificate. The Academic Standing Policy requires that you maintain a 2.0 or greater cumulative GPA and that you have a 2.0 term GPA as well. If you do not comply with this policy, you will be placed on probation and will be required to meet with your academic advisor, discuss your academic success with the International Student Coordinators, and meet with an International Student Ambassador.
