It is possible for high school students to receive a transfer of three college credits from Martin Luther College (MLC) for completing each dual-credit course. The courses cover the same objectives, content, and assessments as the single-semester courses offered at MLC.
Since MLC is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, you should also be able to transfer these credits to any college of your choice, provided you enroll in a program at that college where a course like this counts as part of the program requirements for your degree and the college allows you to transfer in credits for such courses. It is suggested that you check with the college you plan to attend to see if it will accept the credits from MLC before applying for college credit through MLC.
Students planning to attend MLC to become teachers need to realize that many courses count towards teacher licensure and graduation requirements for most MLC Early Childhood, Elementary Education, and Secondary Education majors; whereas for pre-seminary or staff ministry majors, some courses may only be offered as free electives.
As a licensure requirement course, World Regional Geography has several key Minnesota teaching standards connected to the course’s outcomes. Therefore, when transferring this course to MLC, your final grade will be included and applied to your MLC transcript. Since this is a grade transfer course, a grade under a C- may have academic consequences.
