What Classes Will Transfer?

Lyon accepts transfer credit from any accredited institution of higher education, under certain conditions. Normally a course will transfer if the student earned a C or better letter grade in the course AND the course is comparable to one offered at Lyon. At the links below, you will find two articulation agreements with local community colleges—these will provide a good idea of common courses that transfer to Lyon, and how they transfer.

Articulation Agreements

Lyon College has articulation agreements with Ozarka College in Melbourne, Arkansas State University-Beebe and Arkansas State University-Newport that allow students who complete all or a significant portion of the Associate of Arts degree at those institutions to transfer easily to Lyon. Satisfactory completion of an associate of arts (A.A.) degree at these two-year colleges with at least 60 hours of transferable coursework will guarantee junior standing at Lyon. Remedial courses are not transferable towards a Lyon degree. In order for coursework to transfer to Lyon, the student must have earned at least a “C” in all courses used to satisfy Lyon’s degree requirements, whether these are taken at Ozarka, ASU-Beebe, ASU-Newport or any other institution. Lyon and the other colleges may specify differing general education requirements.

Lyon and the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB) are committed to providing educational opportunities for citizens of Batesville and the surrounding region. To fulfill this commitment, the two institutions have created the College Opportunity Program. Its goals are two-fold: 1) to facilitate transfer from UACCB to Lyon so that students in the Independence County/Batesville area have and opportunity to receive a quality baccalaureate education at an affordable price without leaving home; and 2) to broaden the college offerings for students of both institutions through limited exchange. The program is known as the College Opportunity Program; students planning to transfer to Lyon are College Opportunity Program transfer students, and students taking a course or courses on their non-home campus are College Opportunity Program exchange students.
